Hi everyone, today I’m sharing this super easy gift card holder project with you all. Sometimes you don’t have a gift, but you don’t want to gift money, so we gift a gift card from a certain store or for an activity. To give the cards a personal tint I create my own gift card holders.
For the gift card holder itself I used a die set by Studio Light (STENCILSL277) and I cut the back and the pocket from design paper from my stash. Next I created the mandala design also using design paper from my stash in combination with a die from Joy! Crafts (6002/1465). Put the elements together using Score Tape and liquid glue.
Next it’s time for the flower image: for this I stamped the flower image from the Gina K Designs stamp set called “Thank you Friend” onto Strathmore Bristol Smooth Surface paper using black ink and I heat embossed directly afterwards using clear embossing powder.
For today’s colouring I’m using my Spectrum Noir Aqua Markers in combination with a water brush. For the red parts I used Scarlet and Burgundy. For the leaves I used Bud Green and Forest. And for colouring around the image I used Flint and Sage. I use several layers until I’m happy with the result. After the colouring is done and the image is dry I add back in some highlights using a white geld pen. Next I fussy cut the image leaving a small border.
Now I only have to adhere the coloured and fussy cut image on top of the gift card holder (making sure I don’t use adhesive on the part where the gift card will go!) and I finished with some green coloured sequins in different sizes for some fun extra details.
And that is it for today’s super easy project! I wish you a creative day!
