Monday already...

Hi all,

I had a lovely workshop on Saturday morning and the ladies loved the different ways of making a Gift Card Holder to pop a gift card in. In fact, one of my ladies was going to give her lovely card that she had made to her daughter for her birthday!

Now that you've made these gift card holders, once, just replicating the directions along with different colour schemes, papers and stamps allows you to make any themed card. In fact, I can't wait to start making more of these for upcoming events like birthdays and Christmas presents. Watch this space for more gift card holders! lol.

So, I've been playing around with the SAB stamp set "Polka Dot Punches" and white embossing powder and have made a recent wedding card with a blue and white theme. I've used the lovely 1/2" Striped Grosgrain Ribbon in Bashful Blue, the wedding themed stamp set "Mr & Mrs" for the sentiment and I've finally christened my Script embossing folder too, only had it for about a year now!

Here's the final card below:

Be back later with another card I'm working on right now :)

Bye for now,



  1. So glad the workshop went really well. Wish I lived a bit closer, I would have loved to have come along! This is a gorgeous card. I love the look of the script embossing folder with that stamp set. I've had this folder for ages too and haven't used it, I'm going to dig it out now though as you've inspired me!
