Merry Monday Challenge – Something Different Week 4

Hey Everyone

So this one started after a phone conversation with my mum….  We were discussing punches and I said my first punch was the Round Tab punch – not sure why this was my first – and how I’ve barely used it in the 3 years since I’ve owned it!  I said to my mum that I was going to use it on a card – easier said than done.

For my last week of using the same sketch at Merry Monday for the month of July I decided I’d like to make a card where I could add a gift card somewhere on the card.  I ended up taking the easy way out last year and gave lots of gift cards instead of pressies, so I wanted to play around with this years cards and add a pocket or something similar to hide the gift cards in. I’ve used the Two Tags die and created a pouch and added it to the front of the card.  Not sure if I’m loving this card but it will do for now.  It will need some tweaking before Christmas comes because it was very fiddly.

Here’s my gift card, card:

And here’s a picture of how the flap opens and where the gift card hides:

Thanks for stopping by.

Cheers

Just Add Ink #95 Bah Humbug

Hey Everyone

Hope you’re having a great Saturday!  It’s absolutely pouring here in Melbourne and it doesn’t look like it’s going stop very soon.  I made this card for the Bah Humbug challenge at Just Add Ink this week where we had to create a Christmas card without using a Christmas Stamp or Christmas DSP – we could only use a Christmas Greeting.  This one stumped but after brainstorming with my mum (thanks Jude!) I came up with the following card.  Well, that was after I made a mad dash to the supermarket this morning to pick up the candy cane as I didn’t have one in my house (I had even resorted to looking for a stale one from last year but gave up coz I thought that would be gross!).

Thanks for stopping by.
