Are you sitting down? Better be...I HAD A CHANCE TO CREATE!
Ahhhhhh....I feel so much better! We have an insanely busy weekend ahead and creating is just what the doctor ordered; amazing how much better I feel after I have a bit of time to myself doing what I love to do.
Last weekend our son was not able to attend a classmate's b-day party; but we still purchased a gift. I knew I wanted to make a card, but then decided to do something a bit different and made it into a gift card holder. I folded the bottom portion of the card up and adhered it with Scor Tape on either side so I could just slide the gift card inside.
The image is from Inkadinkado - In The Groove. I added the circle stamps around the main image in VersaMagic Wheat - next to impossible to see in the pictures, but cool IRL. All edges were distressed and several were sponged with VersaMagic Wheat & Jumbo Java.
For fun, I tore a few spots next to the main image; probably would have been easier/better if I had a "longer" area to tear, but still looks cool!
Hope the dude likes his card/gift and I hope YOU have a fabulous weekend! I'll be looking for fairies to come "whip my house into shape" while I work all day Saturday and then we have a double-header baseball game Sunday. GO BOMBERS!!!
