I got this fabulous idea from my stampin' friend Roxy who has a great pictorial tutorial of how to make them! They are super easy, and really fun!
Here's mine :) The left photo shows the gift card holder put together, and tied closed. The right side photo shows it open. The gift card would go where the yellow post it note is inserted. In real life the ribbon matches better! LOL!
cardstock: SU! Pumpkin Pie, and Brilliant Blue
patterned paper: Pebbles Inc.
font: QK Sunshine (thanks Joy!!)
Stamps: Background Basics (SU!)
ribbon: double stitched grosgrain Wild Wasabi (SU!)
other: sticky strip to hold it all together!
I"ll share later, so check back!
Ok, I got it photographed, and loaded and resized!! The first photo is the full card, the 2nd is a closer look at the layers of the crown/scallop circle and ribbon (all popped up!)
Cardstock: close to cocoa, purely pomegranate, very vanilla
ink: purely pomegranate
ribbon: pomegranate satin wide
stamps: Perfect Princess, and Warm Words (?)
patterned paper: Melissa Frances something
other: stickles (pink and lacy something)
I was inspired for this card, by this card at Splitcoast Stampers. It's a wealth of information and ideas!! Thank you Paula for this fab idea!

I had such a fun time doing this layout! Karen challenged me to do a 'busy' layout. I have always loved the look of them, but never get to doing them, as my layouts are usually much simpler! :)
I used a mix of stuff for this layout - Wild Aspargus paper and embellishments, paper flowers and buttons from my stash that came with my new bag I got in Florida, thread, SU! cardstock, SU! ink, Cuttlebug die cut circles, SU! wide and narrow grosgrain ribbons, and the SU! Signo Uniball white gel pen. TFL!
