Wallet-style gift card holder


Hi all and happy rainy Wednesday....geez, it's 3:00 in the afternoon but it's so dark outside, it looks more like 8 p.m. It's seriously POURING out there. I wish I could sent it to Texas where it's really needed right now.

A few weeks ago, a very special blogging friend of mine, Christine Dol, sent me this beautiful gift card holder with a little Michael's money (that I already spent....seriously Christine, thank you so much!......I would sooooo love to meet you in person some day and spend the afternoon crafting together, too). I wanted to try my hand at making one of these wallet-style GC holders, traced up her template, and here's what I came up with...



I used a stamp from my Penny Black Hello Friend clear set, colored it with Copics, added some Stardust Stickles, and paired it up with Thrift Shop DP. Here's a shot of what it looks like opened up...


(I just added a small square of blue DP so you can see where the GC or note will be inserted.)

Okie dokie, it's time for me to find a BIG OLE' umbrella and head to the bus stop. The kiddo will be home shortly. Later!

What a cute gift card holder, and how sweet of Christine :)

Hope you didn't get to drenched out there waiting for the school bus.

Christine sure is thoughtful isn't she? That's a cute style gift card holder too! It's not supposed to stop raining now until Monday! I wish we could send some of this rain to TX too!! I forget what the sun looks like! LOL

I just love it!!! I love that wallet style and your image is the sweetest. Of course you rock those PB images GF!! Christine is just too sweet!! What a great friend!! I agree with Carol, I forget what the sun looks like too. I wish Texas could have some of this rain. Glad you made it through the hurricane o.k. A storm like that makes you thankful for all the things you take for granted like electricity.
hugs,
Chris

I guess I should check my account now that my dd uses my computer and hops too. The last comment from Twinklebug was from me and not dd. Sorry for the confusion.
hugs,
Chris

Denise...you are the best! Thank-you so much for your sweet comment regarding your gift card holder. I am thrilled that you loved it!
I must say....you ALWAYS do such a perfect job on your projects. I absolutely love your little PB image. I wish I could colour like you with those copics...your colouring is so vibrant and sooooo good! The ribbon is such a nice touch too.
Hopefully you did not get to wet waiting at the bus stop. Oh I wish summer was coming back...don't you!

What a darling gift card holder! Will have to CASE this idea! I loved what a FB friend commented about the rain..."the sun is always shining...it's just that the clouds get in the way at times". :-)
