La-La's Weekly Wednesday Challenge #23
Wednesday means it's time for another La-La's Weekly Wednesday Challenge! This week our challenge was set by Kim and is to make a gift card holder. You can make it any size, any style, as long as it holds a gift card!
I'm normally very lazy and just stick my gift cards in a regular card so I've never made a special gift card holder before. I thought there might be others like me so I decided to do something simple and easy - I altered a regular card just a bit to make a gift card holder card. Here's what I came up with:
If you look very closely at the pictures, you can see that I folded the top flap of the card under just one inch and glued the edges to make a holder portion for the gift card.
I used Rosie Sitting with Cat and a couple papers from the Basic Grey Eva collection. I stamped Rosie, colored her with Copics, cut her out and popped her up on foam boosters. To finish off the card, I distressed all the edges, did a bunch of sewing, and added a couple flowers and fern punches. The sentiment is from Papertrey Ink.
We'd love to have you play along with us! All the details can be found on the La-La Land Crafts blog. TFL!
