Blogger Challenge #13

RBC13 Snowflake Gift Card Holder_SaK 001

Today's Rubbernecker Blogger challenge is to make a card in any shape

other than the standard 4.25x5.5.  It can be a long or tall card, or any other shape you want it to be.  Your card

must also include snowflakes!  To participate, all you have to do is upload your card to either your blog and/or

online gallery and comment on this post, including the link to your card.

RBC13 Snowflake Gift Card Holder_SaK 002

The gift card holder started with a large shipping tag measuring 6 1/4" x 3 1/8"  I used blending foam &

the applicator tool to sponge it with Distress Weathered Wood ink.  Snowflakes were stamped in

Distress  Broken /china ink.  The snowflake background was inked in versamark and embossed in clear

powder.  It didn't give enough definition to the tag, so I ended up going back and stamping the background

using Adirondack paint dabber in pearl.  When dry, I scored the tag at 1 1/4", 3 3/4" & 4" starting at the top.

The tag was layered on pacific point CS and scored again matching up the score lines on the tag.  The

ribbon is tied around the top flap and the bottom flap of the holder tucks into the ribbon to hold it closed.

The embellishment is a snowflake pin I picked up at 90% off after Christmas last year.  The gift card is

held in place with Wacky Tac adhesive which is a sticky post it type adhesive.  Have a wonderful day, hope

you have time to play along!
