For Baby


It's Sunday and I'm guest designing again for Paper Sundaes.
Meljen's Designs is sponsoring this weeks challenge which is 
 Anything But A Square.

I know, I know.  This looks like a square right?  Nope!!  See?


I've made a super sweet gift card holder for a friends baby shower gift.  Isn't it the sweetest thing?!?! Well, I can't take credit.  My blogging buddy Kerri made this same gift card holder and I copied her's I loved it so much.  You can see her's HERE.  

The gift card holder is a template from Perfect Presentations, My Little Bag.  I just love the way it opens.  You could even include some little candies or other small goodies inside as well.  The brown ribbon I used for the handle has a shimmery gold thread through the satin.   It turned out to be the perfect match for this little project.  It's has such a pretty sparkle in real life.


I used Basic Grey's mini magnets to keep it closed.  (I just took the picture before I put them on)  The image is a freebie that is offered for joining Meljen's Papercraft Planet Group.  After I colored the image I cut it out and popped it up on foam dots on the embossed panel.




Thanks so much for stopping by!
Wendy

I've not seen a gift card holder shaped like this before. I love it!! Super paper choice - and that image is adorable with his little stitched parts. It's adorable the way his tail extends out of the frame. Great job!!
