For this weeks challenge I decided to make a gift card, the idea is you give a card with a hidden surprise inside like special tea bags (see some I made here) store cards or even seeds as I have done. I like the idea of giving a wildflower garden to a friend. Its easy to sow and creates a beautiful sight in the summer and it attracts butterflies.
I made the holder using this Tutorial The only difference is instead of making a band to fit round the card I added some ribbon that is attached behind the main stamped image, so can tie it with a pretty bow.
The base image is made using bundled sage distress ink to cover the card and then I stamped old letter writing in the same colour. For the main image I used a Dew Drop ink called Pearlescent Thyme and then after attaching the ribbon I put it on to the card with pop dots..
