Happy cyber Monday. Lol! Today’s share is the third design from my November Christmas card class. It features the Tin of Tags stamp set and Candy Cane Lane Designer Series Paper. I came across this fun fold gift card holder online and modified the size to fit the sentiment as well as the sentiment itself and the designer series paper. I thought I had saved the inspiration but I spent 30 minutes trying to find it and could not. Thank you for the inspiration!
BASE: The base starts with the In Color Cucumber Crush, which adds a fun pop of color. The interior is layered with Real Red and the Gumdrop design from the Designer Series Paper Candy Cane Lane.
The right fold is layered with Real Red and Crumb Cake. Then to add the first bit of shine clear emboss the Starlight Candy Design also from the Designer Series Paper Candy Cane Lane and then punch them out. [TIP: Yes……you can clear emboss your printed paper to add an unexpected bit of shine. Sweet!) The interior right fold is where the gift card sleeve is attached, it is also in Cucumber Crush.
SENTIMENT: The left fold, which is also in Real Red, reveals the interior where you write your note and the top flap folds partially over the right fold covering just a bit of the candies. It is layered with Cucumber Crush and Whisper White. The sentiment is from the Tin of Tags stamp set which is stamped onto the Whisper White with Memento Black ink. The sentiment is stamped again onto Cucumber Crush and fussy cut for the banner that is popped with Dimensionals.
Finally….to add the last bit of sparkle the dots are topped with 1/8″ circles of Real Red Glimmer cardstock. The shine from the embossed “candies” and Red Glimmer dots give this the perfect amount of bling. [grin]
I hope you had a wonderful Thanksgiving holiday weekend. Thank you for stopping by today and have a great Monday!
