Just Add Ink #293 - Just Add A Gift Card

I can't believe that we are up to the last Just Add Ink Challenge of the year. It's been a fantastic, crafty year and I have loved seeing every one's creations for those who have entered in the challenges and have gained a tonne of inspiration from you all too.

This weeks challenge is Just Add A Gift Card to which I interpreted it to be a gift card holder but you can make it a gift card that accompanies a gift as well. It's up to you what you decide to create.

 I remembered that I had the Gift Card Envelope & Trims Thinlit dies (haven't used it for a bit. Oops) and I even had to look in the Stampin' Up! 2015 - 2016 Annual Catalogue to see if you can still get them (another Oops).

I die cut the envelope out of the White Corrugated Cardstock. I've been loving the Kraft Corrugated Cardstock of late but I think the white is just as cool too if not better! 

I've then made a quick belly band to go around the envelope to 'pretty' it up. You can't give a plain envelope in my book. Whether it be an envelope for a card or a little envelope for a gift card. It has to be dressed up in some way.

The trees are stamped from the Festival of Trees stamp set and then its finished off with some bling.

Thanks so much for stopping by today! Please go and check out the rest of the Just Add Ink Design Team to see what inspired them with their gift card and come and show us your creation! I can't wait to see it!

Thanks so much for stopping by!

  3. I hate to think of all the forgotten crafty bits I have hidden away in drawers and behind closed doors. I've even been known to purchase the same thing twice....shameful I know! I absolutely and totally agree with you about the corrugated paper - it's divine. Love what you've created, Rochelle. You've prettied it up beautifully - love the blingy bits.

    Hope you all have a lovely family Christmas. Enjoy some downtime with the kiddos and hopefully the heat won't ruin things too much. xxx
