Vintage Gift Card Holder

Good morning and happy Friday to you! Today is my last day of school for 2 whole weeks!!! I am so excited to be home with my kids, stay up late into the wee hours of the night, and not have to fly around in the mornings!

I have a lil' gift card holder that uses some products from my most favorite companies! The envelope was created with my Imagine machine by Provo Craft. It is from the cartridge, Imagine More Cards. If you don't know what the Imagine is, it is a printer mixed with a die cutting machine. You print, then cut the image you want! I am totally addicted, and you will definitely be seeing more projects done with it! The main image is from another favorite company of mine, Crafty Secrets. It is one of the Birds & Blossom's Creative Scraps' images. I inked the edges, dabbed the entire front with Versamark and sprinkled it with a glittery embossing powder. I love the look, but it is glittery without distorting the image! I backed it with a scalloped square using a Spellbinder's die.
I tied some of my colored seam binding around image to finish it off.

I added a piece of velcro to keep it shut...... : ) Then just slip the gift card inside!



Another busy weekend ahead of me.....Cort has another basketball game to cheer for tomorrow and Sunday I will be seeing my Dad, my sisters, all the nieces and nephews for breakfast with Santa. And somewhere in between there, I plan on baking some cookies with the kids!
Have a wonderful weekend! : )

It's so wonderful to have time off. I work two days next week and then I'm home free until after the new year. Oh, I feel your joy! Now, let me catch my breath... this is an absolutely stunning piece of work! The gift card it holds will be much appreciated, but your artwork will be cherished even more!
