A gift card (with a small piece of chipboard!)

>> Tuesday, 13 January 2009

Isn't it nice to feel a bit warmer? A bit wetter, yes, but definitely warmer!!

This card was intented soley for the Magnolia Vs. Stampavie challenge "Give a Little" but I added a little chipboard flower so it qualifies for the Basic Grey challenge too. Actually the flower isn't chipboard (I don't have any!) but a Quickutz flower cut from the side of my husbands box of porridge sachets!! - the petal holds the card closed. Tilda is stamped on watercolour paper, coloured with distress inks and watercolours and then mounted on sticky fixers. Trouble is the paper is so thick it makes it tricky to cut images out.

On the inside there is a pocket to put a gift card. All the papers are BG Euphoria - I'm almost out of these now so will have to get some more as they are my absolute favourite. Button and ribbon from my stash.
