How Was Your Day?~

I think I should just be totally honest and tell you that I made this gift card holder for my brother in law’s birthday. His birthday that was in May!! Eeek!

In my defense I have not seen him or my sister since before his birthday, so…

Anyway I think it’s totally adorable.

And I put it together rather quickly even with the assistance of a two year old.

You know how you like a paper line SO much you buy the complete set of it, take it home and then realize you had already purchased the digital version of it.

Yes, that is exactly what I did. I even have several print and cut pieces purchased for my Silhouette.

I really, really like this line.

So, I thought I would put some of those digital papers to use.

I simply opened them up straight from my Windows Photo Gallery and printed them just like I would a picture. This way I didn’t have to open Photoshop at all.

I used my ATG to adhere my tag to a 8.5 x 11″ sheet of cardstock and printed. I found that the adhesive held the tag in place and just rubbed right off when done.

It worked so well I printed on both sides of my tag.

I used a sheet of 6 x6 coordinating paper to create a pocket to hold the gift card.

I topped it with a journal card that I just love and thought went well for a birthday gift and border sticker that I also stitched into place.

And you knew it was coming… I had to add an Imagine More Cards pointy finger to match the pointing finger on the card.

And if you have a pointy finger you have to have a string tied on it!

Or at least I do!

I used~
Echo Park Note to Self Digital papers, 6 x 6 paper stack, Journaling cards, border stickers
Imagine More Cards, twine, kraft tag, Tim Holtz Tiny Attacher

As a side note~ Jessica Sprague is having a FREE class next week called Photoshop Top 5. She’s covering the Top Five Essential things everyone needs to know about Photoshop. I’ll be there! Check out her website if you’re interested.

Did I mention it’s FREE?
