Christmas Gift Tag Bag Card

Wow, that is a long title to the blog post. Just not sure what else to call this creation?  This week the “Card Caravan”  from the Digichick is visiting Cardvarks and their prompt is for some sort of gift card holder.

Given that I plan to use some itunes cards and such as gifts this year it seemed like the perfect project to get my hybrid creating mojo back and some scrapping done.

Using a couple of new releases from the Digichick Designers (shhh- they come out tomorrow so consider this a sneak peak) it all came together so beautifully.

Happy Holly Days Digital kit from Karen Lewis is just gorgeous and one you are going to want for your seasonal scrapping. Add to that the new Gift Tag Bag templates from Geeky Diva and you have the prefect match for the cutest little gift tag bag cards. 🙂

I added a cute little brad and a metal arrow to jazz it up a bit. Edging all the peices with Colour box chalk ink just finished off the whole vintage feel too.

Can’t you see that fab little bag holding some chocolates or candy canes along with the itunes or gift card. Imagine it stuffed full of cash. That would sure makes someones Christmas!

Pop on over to Cardvarks to see what everyone else is coming up with for more fabulous gift card or money holders ideas.


Digital Stamp and a Grab Bag

My incredibly talented card making friend Sylvia has been kindly showing me the ropes around the online stamping community. Yesterday she introduced me to a group at Paper Craft Planet called Phindy’s Place. It is a friendly group of ladies and there was a card challenge. 🙂 Of course I had to play.

I combined it with the Day 153 sketch from 365 Cards to make this cute, clean, and simple (for me) card.

I tried playing around with a damp paint brush and some Versacolour stamp inks to give her dress dimension. In keeping with the simple theme I didn’t go overboard with the colouring. Just a touch seemed right.

The new Grab Bag from Karen Lewis (available from the 1st of August at the DigiChick)was the perfect choice for the cute little hedgehog digital stamp from Phindy. This card should give you a little sneak peak of a tiny bit of all the wonderful and gorgeous goody’s in there.
