The card is based on this weeks sketch at Sweet Sketch Wednesday.
The sweet images were part of a RAK from the very lovely Mrs Sugar. I chose my colour combo based on the latest challenge at Colour Create. The optional extra is to use silver and hearts, luckily there's a heart on theimage but to be on the safe side I've added hearts inside the gift card holder and chose patterned paper with hearts on too. I only have a little silver and that's the gorgeous metallic filigree brads - one on the card and a larger one on the gift card holder. Which works well for Cute Card Thursday as their theme is 'metal mania'.
Here's the gift card holder:
I've used the larger filigree brad as a closure to wrap the ribbon around to keep the card holder shut. Project Tuesday set the challenge to make a gift card holder this week and there's a link to a fabulous tutorial - they're so easy to make!
And here's the inside (with my Tesco clubcard in!!
And finally on to the mess. My desk that it. No scrap that, my entire craft room is a mess. I prepped for my Stampin' Up! classes at the weekend, dumped the stuff back in there and have made several projects since without so much as a sniff of putting anything away. So for once you can oggle my stash and know I'm no Bree Van Der Kamp when it comes to house keeping!
Please hop over to Stamping Ground to join in with 'what's on your work desk Wednesday' and see some much tidier spaces than mine!
