Crafty Creations Challenge 96 - Gift Card Holder

I had great fun with this weeks challenge over at Crafty Creations which is to make a gift card holder.

Now firstly, apologies to those of you who visit my blog because once again I've used my Stampin Up Bauble stamp set & punch!! getting a bit monotonous aren't I lol!!

My friend & Stampin Up rep Jules showed us how to make this gift card holder at a recent workshop & it's so easy to make & can easily be adapted if you don't have bauble set! If you would like the measurements etc they can be found here with a video tutorial on how to make it. If you need any Stampin Up products then Jules is your woman!!! great customer service & she's running a Christmas order service at the moment.

I've used Stampin Up Crumb Cake cardstock for the main body of the gift card holder & edged to with the Scallop Trim border punch. The stamp is from the Contempo Christmas set & the ink is Cherrry Cobbler.

The bling, ribbon & paper are from my stash.

We're being sponsored this week by

who are offering a fantastic prize of  a $20 shopping spree!!

Pop over & have a look at the brilliant projects from the rest of the DT.

Thanks for looking.
