Rose Blossom Blog Hop (and a Giveaway!)


Welcome to the Rose Blossom Blog Hop!  With only 10 days till Christmas, we wanted to bring you last minute gift ideas that you can make with your paper crafting supplies.  There are seven of us in this circular hop, so grab your favorite beverage and enjoy.  You will be inspired!

For me, last minute gifts are usually gift cards.  I wanted to make you a gift card holder using some of my favorite quick and easy supplies.  Read on for the directions!


I used Fern cardstock for the base.  You can find this gift card cut on the Artiste cartridge (p. 55 Card), and I cut it at 5-1/4".  Using the Fern sheet from Enchantment Paper Fundamentals, I cut another base at 5".  I just cut a portion of it for the front.  I cut the snowflake pieces from Art Philosophy (p. 27 Shift and p. 27 Layer + Shift).  Red and silver glitter paper really made the snowflake pop!  I wrapped some fern and cranberry twine around the card and then hand cut my banner from one of the White Pines Picture My Life cards.

Now lets look at the inside:


I cut another base in White Daisy at 5".  I cut it apart for the inside covers.  I used the Holly Jolly Christmas stamp set for my sentiment.  Now this is something different I do with my gift card holders.  You can leave the center loose so that it flaps from side to side.  I like to adhere my to the inside of the card as shown.  It makes a firmer pocket and there's less chance of the card falling out!

Now it's time to move on to my dear friend, Lynn.  I know she has something amazing for you!!

GIVEAWAY!

For your chance to win a set of White Pines Picture My Life cards, leave a comment here, on my Instagram page, or on my Facebook page.  I will draw a winner on Thursday, December 17th at Noon, and I will send them right out!

So perfectly lovely! That Fundamental paper really shines when used like this. I'm always in awe of how you layer so many elements onto the smallest of pieces. Merry Christmas!
