Day 19 - Surfin’ Snowman Gift Card Holder
What can I say, when you find a good idea, use it in as many different ways as you can. Here is yet another spin on the pull-up gift card holder, only this one folds to a single panel, with a pull-up area for a message or gift card. Folded dimensions are 2-1/4" x 4-14". Flat dimensions are 5" x 4-1/4" scored at 2-1/4" and 4-1/2" with a half inch wrap around seal. Inside panel is 2-1/8" x 4-1/2". For this gift card holder, I wanted something fun and Florida style...bright and sunny!!! I chose Real Red, Green Galore, Whisper White and So Saffron Cardstock. I edged the scallop circle “sun” in Only Orange and the hand colored surfer snowman in Real Red ink. Blender pens and markers were used to hand color. I added touches of glitz by dotting 2-way glue over the finished art and sprinkling with Dazzling Diamonds glitter. The ribbon is 1/4" red grosgrain and the stamp set is called Shellebrate, perfectly adorable for us coastal inhabitants. Have fun dressing up your gift card giving with this fun project!
