Christy’s Beary & Bright Gift Card Holder

Challenge 15  is open until Sunday, November 5 at 11:59 PM ET

Happy Friday Fawnatics Friends! Just in time for your weekend crafting, Christy is with us today to share her gorgeous Beary Happy Holidays gift card!

Hey crafty friends, it’s Christy here with a fun way to give everyone’s favorite holiday gift: the gift card! I started out by stamping out my images from Beary Happy Holidays and coloring them with Copic markers. Then I took another piece of white cardstock die cut with the Small Stitched Rectangle Stackables to give it a nice edge and created a snowy one-layer background using a stencil and some distress inks. I gave it a good couple spritzes with a pearlized spray and set it aside to dry.

Once it was, stamped my sentiment across the bottom in Lobster ink, and die cut it with the largest Lift the Flap Lawn Cuts. Then I arranged all my images on top. I added some Perfectly Plaid Winter patterned paper over a card base made of Moonstone cardstock and carefully glued just the outside edges of the focal panel to the card base, so the flap can be lifted easily.

Last, I added a gift card inside the flap using two mini glue dots to hold it in place. Voila! To see how this whole card came together, you can visit my blog Christy Gets Crafty and watch the video at my YouTube channel!

Jessica’s Cute Candy Wrapper!

Challenge 15 will be open until Sunday, November 5 at 11:59 PM ET

Jessica joins us today with her cute and clever take on gift packaging!

Good morning!  Jess here with an idea for our Clever Gift Packaging challenge!  I don’t actually own many of the treat box or gift holder dies from Lawn Fawn (yet!) so I decided to give you an idea of how to create gift wrapping without using a treat-specific die!

My husband and I love these yummy gourmet chocolate bars and I thought it would be fun to slip one into his lunch on Halloween! But I wanted to gussy up the packaging a little so I created a s’mores themed gift wrapper!  I started by die-cutting the Outside In Stitched Rectangle from the middle of a 12×12 piece of Armoire patterned paper from the Knock on Wood collection. Then I trimmed the paper down to a 4”x9” strip with the rectangular opening in the center. I adhered a piece of vellum behind the rectangle and then stamped the sentiment from Love You S’more onto the vellum with Versafine and heat-embossed it with Clear Embossing Powder. Then I turned the strip over and stamped the flames with Versafine and heat-embossed them with Clear Embossing Powder. I colored the flames with Copic markers on the back side of the vellum to get a more muted look.

Next I stamped the adorable squirrel and marshmallow from Love You S’more onto white cardstock with Copic-friendly Jet Black ink and colored them with Copic markers before die-cutting them with the coordinating dies. I adhered them over the vellum window and then added a few accents with a white gel pen. Finally I die-cut the pink hearts from the Hearts die set, adhered them to the vellum window, and added a layer of clear sparkle for a little extra shimmer!

And that’s it! You have 2 weeks to get crafty and create some clever gift packaging for our current challenge and I can’t wait to get more ideas from all of you! Thanks so much for stopping by and have a fantastic day!
