Challenge #9, A Gift Card Holder!

Well, it's time for another Kraftin' Kimmie Challenge. I can't believe it's number 9 already! This time, our super talented Vicki wants us to make a gift card holder. Now, I have to confess I was a little worried about this one as I have only ever once made one before and couldn't even remember how I did it. So this really was a challenge for me. However, thanks to my DD Kraftin' Kimmie, I was able to track down the tutorial for it and it was actually fun to make.

I just had to use cute little Oliver, one of Crissy's Cuties as I thought he was perfect for this and I love an excuse to play with him. I coloured in Oliver using my S.U. Markers, then matted him on Almost Amethyst. I used Stardust Stickles on his hat and finished with a snowflake punched out of glittery cardstock. The body of the holder is Lavender Lace and I used some unknown dp behind Ollie.

On the inside, I used some matching dp behind the pocket, then a strip of the same dp as on the front along the top of the pocket. I used some Amethyst twill ribbon to close the card and that's it. Great fun and now I have a gift card holder ready to give to someone for Christmas and I want to make some more!!

Make sure you go to Kraftin' Kimmie's Challenge Blog to see what all the other Krafty Girls have come up with, then let's see what you have for us!! I can't wait to see all the different ideas that I can 'borrow'! When you link your creations to Kimmie's Blog, one lucky lady will win the Ozzie and Harriet stamp and the accessory stamp, 'Just Skating By' as that's the one Vicki has used for her awesome creation.

Hope you have a wonderful weekend with a little time to stamp,
