Papertake Weekly - Cards with a difference!

Happy Tuesday everyone! It's time for a new challenge over at Papertake Weekly, and this week, it's "cards with a difference"! When is a card not a card? When it's a ......   do one that could double up as a gift ie stationery holder, wallet, bag card, etc.  We're being sponsored this week by none other than The Ribbon Girl!!   I looked around the internet and found a really cool card that hides a chipboard gift card inside that was made by Scrappydesigns! I LOVED hers, so decided to give one a whirl. It was actually quite easy to make. I didn't even have to have a practice run, which is almost never heard of in my little world of crafting. LOL!  Here's a link to the video on how to make it. And here's what I came up with.

I used one of the adorable images from the new Sweet Christmas Dreams Magnolia collection which is available at Magnolia-licious! The BEST place to buy your Magnolia stamps and dies! And have you heard that Diana is also now carrying Memory Box dies??? They're up for preorder right now so RUSH over to place your order! I colored #3055 Something For You Tilda with Copic markers and then popped her up on a frame cut with Nestabilities. I also used the lucious Sweet Christmas Dreams Paper Pack from Magnolia-licious! 

She's stamped onto Cryogen White and then colored with Copic markers,  Skin: E13, 11, 01, 00; clothes: R22, 24, 27, 59; T grays on the fur trim and E20's on her hair.  I just am really in love with this new Sweet Dreams Collection!!  The flowers and corners are from Wild Orchid Crafts.

I used a Velcro closure on the card, and when you open it up, there's a chipboard gift card holder inside. This was so much fun and easy to make! I couldn't find a tree to match the one in the video and every other tree I tried wasn't wide enough at the bottom to hold the gift card very well. So I took my Gypsy, and stacked three triangles and joined them together. Easy peasy!! Cut them out of chipboard and then used some Basic Grey scrap paper I had sitting here. I used a sentiment and snowman from a set of Recollections stamps from Michaels.

I just put a hole in the top of the chipboard pieces using my Crop-a-dile and then set a couple of eyelets in the holes for strength.  The card slips right into the cut out green pocket you can see there. The pocket is held securely in place with 1/4" Scor Tape! There's no other choice of adhesives when you want to make sure it's not going to come apart!!  So that's it for me today! Please be sure and hop over to Papertake Weekly to see the gorgeous creations by my oh-so-talented teamies! And then we'd love it if you'd grab your paper and glue and play along with us! Thanks so much for stopping by to see me today, and hope to see you back again soon! Hugs!
