I've spent a few sessions over the last 3 days putting this card together for my sister's birthday which is on January 1st. I always think it's pretty cool that every year the whole world waits up for her birthday to happen!
My sister's town house has an oriental theme and all her decor is in red, white, black and silver. She doesn't understand why I spend so long making cards as they only get 'thrown away' (gasp!) and she always tells me I should put my energy into making home decor pieces or practical items that last. Well, I have made sure this one won't end up in the bin (I hope) as I have made a card/home decor piece/gift card holder all in one!
Stampin' Up! enthusiasts might be interested in knowing that the card is actually constructed from the Gift Card Envelope Die and there's a couple of sneak peeks to some brand new items heading our way on the 5th January - Botanical Gardens Designer Vellum Stack (Free SAB item) and Cups and Kettle Framelits Dies (Occasions Catty 2016). I will provide more details in another post when my tutorial is complete.
Folds flat for posting.
Red and White
This is the first time that I have played along at Seize the Birthday!
I'm also linking up at Just Add Ink as they have a Gift Card Theme for challenge #293; the back of my card in the box has a Gift Card Envelope attached as my sister is getting a gift card for one of her favourite clothing stores.
Thanks for stopping by,
