Gift Card Holder

I don't know about you, but I always have gift cards that I give each year. I like to personalize them by making a creative holder. My Silhouette digital cutter makes this so easy! I just open the "tag gift card holder" from my library of images I have purchased. The image will look like this:

I loaded my mat with papers from the Wonder and Wishes collection. I used the brown and dots paper to actually hold the gift card. For the base/holder of the gift card I used the red poinsettia paper. My Silhouette does the hard work of cutting them out for me. I inked the edges with red ink. I wrapped Doodlebug twine around the gift card holder and added a chipboard tag as well. Here is my finished gift card holder.

Friday Challenge on the Quick Quotes Blog

It is challenge time on the Quick Quotes blog. It is a simple and useful challenge! The challenge is to create a tag to use this season. If you do not celebrate Christmas, you can create a gift tag to use.

I created this ornament gift tag using the Quick Quotes December Club Q kit and a digital image that I cut on my Silhouette. It is a 3-D ornament tag. I inked the edges with amaretto powderpuff chalk ink. I also adhered some pearls from the kit to give it a little something extra. Be sure to get your entry linked on the Quick Quotes blog for a chance at a great prize.

I inked the edges of the present. I also used torn paper to add texture to my layout. To create my ribbon, I just tied a know. The smaller ribbon was done the same way. I used stickles on my present as well as below the ric rac. I also placed some stickle dots in some of the dots of the background pattern paper.
The 3-in-1 Beacon glue is great for adhering chipboard to paper. I used a little on the back of the larger bow as well. I love the strength of this glue.
