Hi & Hello!
Happy Wednesday to you! Today the Angels Landing Design Team has made an array of gift card holders that are easy to make and so fun to give. Mine is a sweet and simple card & gift card holder in one: the little train from the Angels Landing Alphabet Train digi stamp set tows along a gift card to someone special.
To make the gift card pocket, I used two rectangle Nestabilities of Stampin' Up! Certainly Celery Textured Cardstock sealed with red line sticky tape; the Cameo Coral "lid" is a Scallop Rectangle Nestabilites that was cut then added with dimensional foam tape. The pocket is snug enough that there is no chance of the card slipping out (it is the second from the largest rectangle in the Large Classic Rectangles set)
The images were colored with Copics then put on foam dimensionals. The base of the card is made from Close to Cocoa, Certainly Celery and Blush Blossom textured cardstock (all Stampin' Up!)
A couple of flatback pearls adds a little bit of elegance to the sweetness. I love the texture, color and dimension of the card - when I added any other embellishments it took away from those three things, so I kept the card clean and simple.
Designer Tip: The middle larger wagon originally held a lamb and a duck; I cut them out, which left a bit of lines on the trim. To get rid of that I added a new strip lined with Tsukineko's Pigma Micron pen in .05.
