Bigger is Better ...
The only thing I love more than a shaped card, is a jumbo shaped card. I came across some very large envelopes (8x8) and had been wondering what I could do with them. This gift card (pun intended :) is 7 3/4 x 6 1/4 and is perfect for such a large envelope. I traced the shadow layer onto folded black cardstock to create the card with a hinge at the top.
I designed it for The Pink Stamper's challenge this week. We were to use 2 shades of blue, 2 shades of pink, and black in one project. The gift package stack is from the Winter Frolic Cricut Cartridge. I used a combination of piercing, embossing, inking, and punches to create the embellishments. The holly is created by my cutting and grouping individual pearls with leaf punches. The light blue package is dry embossed with the Cuttlebug Victorian folder. The white stripes on the dark blue package were dry embossed with the Cuttlebug Pindot folder. The "Happy Holidays" stamp is from Stampin' UP!
We have been having dreadful weather so I ran outside to snap a photo really quick and noticed a piece of scrap paper in the image! How frustrating and now its pouring again, perhaps I can get a better image later.
Thanks for looking,
