Gift Card Holder

It's Monday! Time for another challenge from the Outlines Challenge Blog! This week the challenge is to make a gift card holder. Play along with us this week for your chance to win a $25 gift certificate from the Outlines Rubber Stamp Company. You might as well have a gift card holder ready, should you be the lucky one who wins, LOL!

I am rather challenged when it comes to making anything other than a card. Scoring, cutting, measuring are not my forte that's for sure. So, I was delighted and relieved to be able to use the Outlines image "Gift Card Holder -Kid" (I-921), which makes gift card holders SO EASY! To make the three layers of the gift card holder, all I did was stamp the entire image three times with Marvy black dye ink onto Neenah Classic Crest Solar White cardstock. Then, following the wonderful step-by-step gift holder tutorial found on the Outlines site, I was able to construct my project with a few cuts and glue. I colored the different layers using Copic markers, and added some highlights with Stickles.

I placed the gift card holder on a panel of patterned paper from Doodlebug Design, and placed a bow on the corner of the card.

No doubt, this is the season for gift cards so make sure you visit the other members of the design team for more great ideas:
