I was blog browsing yesterday morning as I was drinking my first cup of coffee and discovered these cool gift card holder cards on Jami's blog More Is More. She has a link on her blog to Sharon's blog No Time To Stamp for the directions to make them so that's where I went next!
You really should check out both these ladies blogs, they're awesome!
I've been working on Christmas card orders and have scraps from my Stampin' Up! Dashing designer paper so I thought I'd make my first one from those. I really like how it turned out and plan to make some more.
The picture below is the card open for you to see. I used Basic Grey magnetic snaps to hold the card closed. Very neat little item but they're rather expensive so I've been dreaming up other ideas of how to keep these closed in my head. I haven't tried any of them yet so all I have are theories so far.
Supply List: Stamps - Fluffie's Snowboarding by Stampendous, Holiday Happiness by Stampin' Up!, Paper - Very Vanilla, Dashing Desinger paper SU, Ink - Noir Black, Real Red, Accessories - Copic markers, Magnetic snap, Real Red eyelet, Marvy Giga Scalloped Square punch.
One other thing I have to add today is I'm downloading digital paper to try out. I was reading Kristine's blog Inkastamp and she was telling about it and gave a link to My Favorite Things where she purchased it. I'll let you know how it goes! I love the idea of printing my own paper and having as much as my little heart desires and not having to store it. A stamper's dream come true?
I have other stuff to share but I think I'll save it for another post. I'm off to deliver Christmas card orders this afternoon.
Have a great day!
