Gift Cards by Virginia

Are you like me? I am always on the hunt for interesting, beautiful but simple and elegant gift card holders. And this is the season for cards!

Here are a couple of gift card holders that I will be using this year - I hope you like them!

Firstly, I wanted to write a few words in my card for the recipient so I created a holder for the front of the card.

Supplies:  Urban Lily (pattern papers); American Crafts (rub ons, ribbon); brads (source unknown); Cuttlebug (die cut)

And I used the Swirl Memory Photocards to create an envelope for the gift card below. With the addition of a few rub-ons, I was done in minutes!

Supplies:  Urban Lily (photocards); stitching; American Crafts (rub ons)

Thank you for letting me share!

Cards, Cards!

I made the simple card using the surplus paper and others.
The point of having taken care is not using many colors.
And I recommend use of an alphabet sticker.

Thank you for stopping!

"Customized" striped paper

I love the Urban Lily "Sugary" collection, but I always thought it could use a little "something. I decided to customize it a little by adding my own glitter!

I used some double sided sticky tape in different widths, then I sprinkled it with glitter in colors that complimented the existing stripes. The result is really cool...

Add some Prima flowers and some funky brads and you're done!

Unsuspecting Cards by Virginia

It is no secret that I love Urban Lily papers. I love the bold, vibrant and interesting designs. To me, this makes for versatility. Using the Lulu and Blackout papers, I created 2 birthday unorthodox birthday cards for two tween girls.

Here they are. They are simple in design to showcase the colour and details of the papers.

Supplies:  Urban Lily (pattern paper); Chatterbox (chipboard alphas); Tim Holtz (grungeboard); Tattered Angels (glimmer mist); Helmar 450 adhesive

And here is a girly girl card for a sweet 6 year old.

Supplies:  Urban Lily (pattern paper); Prima (bling alpha); Tattered Angels (glimmer mist); Copic Spica pen (outline butterfly); Maya Road (chipboard butterflies)

Thanks for letting me share!
