Interested in seeing sneak peeks from the next stamp release over at DRS Designs? Well, that's exactly what's going on for the DRS Blog Challenge this week. The theme is Gift Card Holders, but many of the stamps used on the challenge projects by the DRS DT are brand new and will be available for purchase this Saturday April 14th.
For this challenge, I created a birthday themed gift card holder. The outside of this trifold card was decorated using the Silhouette Balloon (491E) and the Tiny Happy Birthday sentiment (1081A). The opening flap was embossed with the Happy Birthday Cuttlebug embossing folder and a tag was created using the Gift For You greeting (514B).
The inside has a white panel for writing your own personal message. I stamped it with the Silhouette balloon again to decorate the lower left corner. To create the gift card flap, I stamped the soon-to-be released Birthday Candle Address Frame (010K) on white card stock and colored the candles with Copic Markers to match. Inside the empty space where you would hand write an address, I stamped the Birthday Wishes Greeting (020B) instead, which will also be released this Saturday.
Next, I matted this piece with teal cardstock and then used a circle Nestability die to create the thumb cutout. I adhered the gift card flap to the bottom panel of the trifold card by adding adhesive to the sides and bottom only, so that the gift card could easily slide into and out if the pocket. Finally, to make it appear as if each candle was really lit, yellow Stickles were added to the candle flames.
