CTVS 3D DT Challenge "Just For You"


Hello my crafty friends and happy Friday!  Today starts another challenge over at Cardz TV.  Mary gave our 3-D DT a challenge to make a Christmas gift card holder.  Can you believe Christmas is next month????  I usually make a lot of gift card holders every year.  Sometimes it's easier to give a gift card to that hard to shop for person.

For my gift card holder I used the Cardz TV Stamps set "Very Merry" for the "Something for your stocking!"  The "Merry Christmas!" came from the "Tiny Tidings" set.  These sets contain many wonderful sentiments for your holiday projects.  When you open this gift card holder, the top flap pulls up the gift card.  I made it using an EK Success Envelope Punch Board.   Here's a tutorial I found.  The paper came from a 6 x 6 paper pad from Doodlebug.  I used a Fiskars punch for the stocking, a 3-inch scallop circle punch from EK Success, scallop oval punch, small oval punch, word window punch, modern label punch from Stampin' Up!

Now it's your turn to make one.  Just create a Christmas gift card holder, head on over to Cardz TV and add your project.  You have until Noon November 27th to enter.  Mary will be giving away a set of her amazing stamps to the winner.  I can't wait to see what you create!

Thanks so much for stopping by, I would really love to hear from you!  I hope you have a safe and warm wonderful weekend!  Here around the castle it has been very cold.  Brrrr

Lots of Hugs,
Laura

  4. I totally agree with you Laura, it is much easier to buy a gift card for some people. I'm starting to be an old Grinch when it comes to shopping. lol I love, love this gift card holder! How cool that the inside slides up the gift card. I will have to make some of these for my gift cards. I love how you decorated your too. So cute!!! You stay warm too, the snow never laid because the ground isn't frozen yet, it will be by the start of the week probably! No snow in the forcast, so we are good for a while. lol Hugs, Brenda
