Only 9 more crafting days until Christmas! This is the time of the year when all those good intentions for major handmade gifts transform into less dramatic projects. Gift cards are a lifesaver (and I know I love receiving them, regardless of what the critics say!), but I still like to dress them up with a handmade holder.
This pop-up holder is based on the template by Jane (Whoopsie Daisy) and is quick and easy, more prerequisites for those last-minute gifts.
Sparkle from our KLSNS Design Team gave me the great idea of increasing this Tilda's versatility by coloring the peaches as apples in her fun card HERE. I like how the colors on my 'apple' came out, but next time I'll try to mask off the inner line for a little less of the peachy look.
The recipe for this holder was inspired by Tuesday Morning Sketches Challenge #24 which called for:
* 1 Tag
* 1 Hidden Message
* Lots of Glitter
The tag is a vellum version and here is the hidden message which still leaves space for our daughter's signature:
As for the glitter, I used glitter DP, glitter pen accents on Tilda's dress and the tag sentiment, and gemstones. It's always tough for me to take a photo that really captures the sparkle, but here's a little better detail view:
Now it's time for me to stop blogging and get busy on the rest of the gift card holders I need to finish before the Christmas party day!
