Scraptastic Mondays



It is with a sad heart to say that this will be my last DT post for Scraptastic Mondays. Cindy has decided not to do challenges anymore. I want to thank Cindy for having me on her DT and for being such a wonderful person to work with. It was a GREAT experience for me and it got me into a whole new field of paper crafting, creating with digi's. With that being said, here is my project:
I made this fun gift card holder. I used Cindy's X-mas Girl With Banner digi. Isn't she ADORABLE! I colored her with Copics and added stickles to her hat and pom. I stamped the sentiment in the banner using a stamp from Whimsical Designs Snow Much Fun stamp set and added a thin layer of stickles over the top to give it some sparkle. I created the gift card holder around this digi. I can give you the basics of how I did this, but I will not be able to give you exact directions. I started by cutting a 4.5 X 11 inch piece of cardstock. I glued down the digi at the top center leaving enough room to trim around it. I placed my gift card under the digi and used a pencil to draw where I wanted the fold and the top of the card. I then placed my glue bottle in the center top and traced around it to get the tab to close it and cut it out. I cut slits in the corners for the gift card and cut around the underneath of the banner for the tab to fit into to close it. I made the front by cutting a piece of cardstock 1/8 inch smaller and stamped it with a snowflake stamp from Whimsical Designs So Much Fun stamp set and added stickle dots to it. I added ribbon to it and glued it down. I added a bow and a tag that I cut and wrote from hand.
I hope you all liked my project and thanks for looking! Please don't forget to check out what the rest of the amazing DT had created. Have a great day!
I am entering this into Robins Creative Cottage linky party.

The coloring is great. I haven't done much with digis, yet. I am a Cricut lover, however. Did you design your little badge person? I saw some Harry Potter characters drawn the same way and I love them.
I went to your profile to see if there were a comment there about drawing it -- Wow! I thought I followed a lot of blogs. I'm nowhere near your level. Have a wonderful Christmas!

Wow, how the heck did I miss this?? So weird. So adorable. I really wish I would have seen this because I LOVE this gift card holder..it is so different, and would have loved to make a few for my Christmas gift cards. I really love what you did with Cindy's digi, and how you added my sentiment to the banner. The snowflake is adorable as a background stamp. Love everything about this one!
