Gift and Card in One

Well last night I was supposed to be doing my 50 swaps for the Regional Training day on Saturday but after about card 5 of 50 I had an idea for a Christmas Card and got a bit sidetracked. So at 1.00 am this morning I had this card made but still only 5 of my cards for Regionals. Guess who is going to be burning the midnight oil for the next two nights!!!!
I seem to be giving gift cards more lately especially to teenagers and I thought it is pretty boring just giving a card with a gift card inside, so I thought this looks like a real present from the outside and gives it more interest.

I must say though I do love this card as I have had trouble with coming up with ways to use this Christmas Ribbon so I was very happy with the way this turned out (even though the bow is a little bit fiddly).

This is the inside with a tag for the gift card and an insert to write on. The glitter and gold embossing don't show up all that well but the overall effect is great.


  1. Saw this on SCS and came to your blog! Love it!
    I may try to CASE this idea. Stephanie

  2. Wow! How did you make that amazing bow???!!!! Beautiful card!
