Repeat Impressions POTW -Gift Card Holder

Hi there! I'm back with a new POTW at Repeat Impressions. For my project I made a gift card holder with a belly band.

Supplies used:
Stamps: Repeat Impressions "Poinsettia"#2012-W and sentiment "Christmas" #1141-W (I inked up separately for a different look)
Stamp-a-ma-jig
Embossing powder (clear)
VersaMark
MS punch
Copics R27 and R37
Sponge
Removable tape
Gift card
Stickles
Memento ink
Score-Pal
Card stock
Designer paper
Washi Tape



The outside view with belly band.



Here is what the inside looks like.



I started out with some green card stock which I cut 61/4 by 51/2 and scored in half. Next I matted some designer paper to both inside panels of my card. Then using a piece of white card stock which I cut to 5 -1/8" by 3- 3/8",then score at 5/8" and 2-7/8". Next I stamped the poinsettia image three times using a mask with the VersaMark and black ink and then embossed it with clear embossing powder. Colored the Poinsettias with Copic's.



Using a circle punch about half way, punch out for the ease of sliding the card out.




Here on the small score side I added some score tape . After gluing the side together I then glued it to a slightly larger mat. I used removable tape to adhere it to the card ( so you can remove it off the card). For other inside of card I made the panels about the same size as the card holder, Added the sentiment and sponged around with Desert Sand. 




To make the belly band, I cut out some white card stock 7 " long, and punched it out with MS punch on both sides and sponged it also. Added a piece of Washi tape  and the Poinsettia image (love this image) cut and embossed. Score the sides and glue together the ends.
Slide in your card and close it with the belly band. 




Great way to put a personal touch to a gift card. Hope you enjoyed my project and don't forget we have a DCC challenge on  Wednesday, hope to see you there. 

Thanks for stopping by. Geri










Feeling Frosty Challenge

Hi there! Hope you are staying dry and warm! We have had a lot of rain this week, no snow YET! So far I'm not missing it at all. They are saying we may get some by Wednesday.  Now about my card, I just love snowmen and this image is so adorable, I just had to play in this challenge that Art Impressions is having, "Feeling Frosty" challenge. The image is from Art Impressions "Warm Your Heart". 
I colored the image with Copic's and fussy cut around him. The very background snow is Bic Wite-Out, Sizzix embossing folder and the larger snowflakes are some stickers I had.




Have a great day and thanks for stopping , I will be back tomorrow with my POTW for Repeat Impressions.
