as an unlimited broadcasting station,
through which God speaks to us every hour,
if we will only tune in.

CPS Challenge - Choose Your Own CPS Sketch

Happy New Year!  


I think I have finally knocked out some kinks in my blog facelift and can now post my first entry for my first challenge for 2010!  I still have some things to add back and have a list of things I want to add on to the blog, but that will wait until another day.


Gift Card Holders/Cards

As I was thinking about how to make a card/giftcard holder together, I was perusing through CPS' past sketches and found #84 and it was perfect for what I wanted to do.  I needed two masculine cards for giftcards and so this is what evolved.  It took me a bit to decide how to close the flap, button with ribbon and in the end I decided on velcro.  I had the iron on kind and it worked out better than I first thought.  It did take some time and care so that I didn't burn the paper even with covering the card with a pillow case before applying the iron heat.



 





 






Stamps:  Penguin - Inkadinkadoo; Reindeer face- Recollections; Sentiments-Recollections.

Paper:  Cardstock from stash; DP for penguin:  Meadow Grass Strip by Max's Backyard;  Reindeer - snow DP from basicgrey.

Ink:  Versamark dazzle in champagne; green, black, gold tinsel, and burgundy emboss powder.

Extras:  Ribbons:  red velvet (penguin card); green plaid and red plaid (reindeer card);  green tinsel ribbon for giftcard holders inside flap; green button (penguin), candy cane accent (reindeer); oval scallop border die cut; square punch; velcro.


For the ornament card holders I used the Sizzix ornament die and coordinated paper.  On the ornament, I cut two dies per holder, one in solid cardstock, the other in dp paper to match the card.  Then, I cut the DP ornament on top to make the pocket for the gift card and glued it onto the solid ornament, leaving a pocket in the middle.  Then, I added holly dies as a front border, made the ornament top in the same dp paper and added the green tinsel ribbon.

Happy New Year!
