Raspberry Suite Color Challenge 10


I had my Stampin Up class a few nights ago and my very talented and sweet demonstrator, Joyce, showed us how to make these gift card holders. I knew immediately that this was something I wanted to make a few of to have on hand. I thought this color challenge was a great way to start. I just love these!

I also tried my hand at making some of Dawn's flowers! I have been wanting to make some since she posted how to do it! I stamped mine with Polka Dot Basics. I didn't have a good brad to use so I managed to get twine through all the flowers and the button!

This is the back of the card...

I prettied up one side of the card and added a few pearls. I used VersaMark to put some polka dots on the actual card holder. I meant to stick a gift card in the holder before I took the pics but I forgot! Oops!

I left the back side blank so this holder could double as a card. I can write whatever I want to write to the recipient!

I can't wait to make some more of these for birthday, for guys, etc... Fun Fun!

Supplies : all PTI (except VersaMark)
Stamps - Polka Dot Basics, Fancy Flourishes, Handwritten Notes, Trademarks
Paper - Dark Chocolate, Dark Chocolate Bitty Box Basics, Berry Sorbet Bitty Dot Basics, Berry Sorbet, Melon Berry, Vintage Cream

Great card! Love the especially the mix of patterns (dots & squares). Didn't know how well the flourishes and polka dots go together! TFS!!
