{ try this challenge #3 }

Good Monday Morning!

Are you ready for our third Try This Challenge?! This week Nancy over at Nancy's Creative Mess is challenging us all to come up with a gift card holder. To participate in this challenge all you need to do is create a gift card holder of some sort and upload it to your blog or the scs gallery with the keyword TTC3. Then post a comment either on this post or on Nancy's challenge post so we can all take a peek at your creation.

Here's what I came up with. I hope you like it! To create this card I started with a 4" x 9" piece of card stock and scored it at 3" and 6". I then stamped the front of the panel with a Lizzie Anne paisley - so cute - I love that stamp! For the main flower image (also a Lizzie Anne stamp), I stamped it with Cranberry Crisp on Confetti White card stock and while the ink was still wet I went over it with a wet aquapainter to move the color around.

I created a pocket inside for the gift card by cutting the corner off and folding the flap in, adhering it with double sided tape.

The "Birthday Wishes" image is a newly released stamp from Verve Visual! I'm so excited that I was given the opportunity to be a Guest Designer for Verve Visual for the month of November. Thank you so much Julee. I've really been enjoying creating with your stamps!

Have a great week everyone! I can't wait to see your gift card holders.
