More Gift Cards!

Hi,


I am totally in love with this Gift Card Die that I got from Emma at www.creativetimeforme.com I have heard from several people that they are sold out but don't worry, Emma will get more in.  This is one little toy that my husband likes too because he gives out gift cards to his clients every year.  He has already put in an order for 10 gift card holders for Christmas lol!  So last night I made two of them.  The first one is a gift carder on a card like I made yesterday.  This one is for my 4 year old next door neighbor for Halloween but instead of putting a gift card in there I am going to put a balloon!  
4 yr olds don't understand the concept of money and she will have so much candy that night so I thought a balloon would be fun!  I am entering this one in the Throwback Thursday Cricutless Challenge.


 The second card I made is just the gift card standing alone.  This took me about 10 minutes to make!  It is so easy!  This one is for a fall wedding.
When I showed this to my husband he really liked it.  He hates wedding shopping and I have a feeling our wedding shopping days are over.  I am just going to put a gift card from Bed, Bath & Beyond (where they are registered) in there, slip it in my purse and slip it in the gift basket.  Easy Peasy!  Hope you all have a great day.  Come back tomorrow, I will be giving away some good luck!

  2. Wonderful gift card holder ideas. A balloon is a wonderful idea. Especially like the Fall colors on the 2nd one with the embellishing & ink edging.

  3. Hi Chriss!

    Thank you so much for your comment and following my blog! I'm glad you liked my card for the blog hop for Jo's b-day, I had a lot of fun making it. I started following your blog a short time ago but with summer haven't had much time to craft/blog. Now with fall coming up fast that is all changing, along with the leaves! I look forward to blogging more with you, you do wonderful projects and seem like you have a great sense of humor.. like me! :)

    Have a great day!

  7. I forgot... I saw a glimpse of your lay-out that you had posted for just a few and then took down before I could comment, so I just wanted to tell you that I thought your lay-out and words were very touching! (We have all been there!) :)

"When the trees their summer splendor
Change to raiment red and gold,
When the summer moon turns mellow,
And the nights are getting cold;
When the squirrels hide their acorns,
And the woodchucks disappear;
Then we know that it is autumn,
Loveliest season of the year."
- Carol L. Riser, Autumn
