I said I’d be back so thought I’d better sneak a post in before I go to bed! I’ve been busy with Christmas Shopping and shopping for shoes and a bag for my daughter for her Year 6 farewell. I must say that was alot easier than the dress shopping! I am totally exhausted but so glad the Christmas shopping is all done except for hubby!

Last week my neice and nephew both had engagement parties to go to and my sister asked if I’d make them a Gift Card Holder to present their gift cards in and my nephew has specified “No Pink” … the hide of the boy!! So not to be out done I did make one for him with ‘no pink’.

GiftCardHolder-Engagement-closedSo I first decided that I needed a ‘classy’ stamp set and you really cant go past Fifth Avenue Floral – it makes any card look good!

I wanted to make it extra special as it was for an engagement gift so I got out the very lovely Textured Whisper White cardstock from my Love Sparkles Simply Scrappin kit and stamped the images in Gold Encore Metallic ink and embossed in gold embossing powder.

This is a very simple front – just two flowers and the saying all embossed in gold. Just gorgeous!

I then made the base of the gift card holder out of the Gold cardstock in the brushed metallics pack – very nice cardstock to say the least. Most metallic cardstock is just coated but the Stampin Up Brushed Metallics is all the way through the cardstock. I love it!

GiftCardHolder-EngagementHere is the gift card opened.

I’ve just stamped the flower into the middle section and again embossed with Gold embossing powder. I’ve done this so it wasnt so plain on the inside.

As you can see the gift card just slides into the middle section of the gift card holder and there is plenty of room to write your message.

When closed you just slide the Kiwi Kiss Satin ribbon around it to secure it all together.

I do hope you like my Gift Card Holder – you can adapt it for any occassion just by changing the stamps and colours used.
