Money Gift Card Holder

Hi folks.  I just wanted to quickly show you the money gift card holder I made for my sister and my future brother-in-law (we're off out tonight and we are off on holiday to Lake Garda on Sunday so thought I'd better squeeze this in).

The bride and groom are off on a fabulous cruise around the Carribean for their honeymoon so have asked for money instead of presents, so I thought I would make my own money holder.

You can see the beautiful vellum better in the picure above, without the ribbon and also the punched border (this is a Fiskars punch I've had for years and not had much use out of).

You can probably just about see the inside, I've slipped in a little card which was done on the computer with gold font. 

I know what your thinking, she's forgotten the money - don't worry, I'll put that in just before the wedding!

Hope you have a good weekend and week ahead. Visit you when I get back. Bye for now! x

A quick post today. Although I'm on holiday at the moment, I still seem to be short of time - we're already into the third week of the hols and I've only two cards to show for it.

Here's one I did for my daughter's birthday - I know it looks a little familiar.  It's the same as a card I did for my other daughter's birthday in March - just a different Miss Anya and different colours.  'Lack of imagination' I hear you say - quite rightly.  I feel a bit like that at the moment and with us off on holiday this weekend I needed to sort a card fast.  So, here it is:

This is what I used:
Miss Anya stamp
Cuttlebug embossing folder
Martha Stewart Punch
Promarkers and Prismas
EK Success flower punch
Craftwork Card Candy
Sentiment done on the computer
Ribbon from stash

Have a good week.x

Bit of an experiment

I've had a little play today with a Hero Arts stamp I've had for years, but was never very sure what to do with it.  I'm undecided if I like this look or not, but I think I'll keep experimenting.

I've stamped with different tones of pinks and purples to give a kind of shadow effect.  It was quite a quick card to do - the most time consuming bit was the pricking around the edge. The little sentiment stamp is from an SU set and the background card is also SU.

Right, I think I'll go and dig out a few more old stamps that have never inked - there's plenty of
