Fruity Gift Card

 Hi and a wonderful Thursday! Iam sooo excited because i know that i will meet tomorrow so many friends at the CHA in Orlando! jeepeeeee :-)
My pocket card with gift card holder was made for the Cute Card Thursday Challenge (Fruity) is already on the way to Sweden. All the cute stamps i have used on my projects should be available for ordering now - not sure tho.. typing this posting on 8. July :-)
 Some of you know that my wonderful friend Inge and myself challenge us here and there... so for this challenge we choosed to make a holder for a Gift Card. First i have created the pocket card.. but than i felt like it was way too big :-( i the card was done and i just was not happy with it. So i thought about making a matching tiny holder, which can actually be layed into the big card with a handwritten note or so. Voila and i hope it just looks like i had planned this all along :-)





If you want to re-create the little GCH here are the measurements:
Cut a strip of CS to 3 x 8 3/4
Fold it at 3 3/4 and 6 1/4 use corner rounder and adhere patterned paper pieces. Affix stamped images, and tie with ribbon or a elastic band close. insert your gift card
Stamps:
"Loves Me" Sentiment
Love and hugs
Claudia

Yes that is a nice idea but have you ever thought of going up to the biggest guy on the subway and telling him your thoughts on this. I wonder what he might do, or would you even do it.

Hi Claudia
I hope you have a great time at CHA!!!! This card is really nice!! I love the idea of the little added gift card pocket:-) the colors are cheerful:-) really up my alley:-) My favorite is the way that circle sentiment looks like a ladybug with the dew drop or a butterfly

I know I'm late making comments on your cards. The babies keep me hopping these days with one crawling all over the place and the other rolling where ever she wants to go! I love this little Tilda and your gift card holder idea is delightful. Cute, cute idea...
