ATS Wednesday...Gift Card Holder Challenge!

*This is my second post for today, please scroll down for The Pixie Cottages Sketch/Ribbon & Bow Challenge.




Hello Again,

I back with All That Scraps Wednesday Challenge and this weeks challenge is to make a gift card holder.

I don't have a specific recipe for my gift holder, I simply started with a mini envelope that originally contained a gift card. I shamelessly tore the envelope apart and made a template for my project and from there I added a decorative cover.


My image, Sugarplums Christmas Angel, really worked well with my gift card holder because of her size and because she is in a sitting position. I adhered her onto the small circular nesties and embellished with Kaiser half back pink gems. I embellished Christmas Angel's halo and wings with extra fine glitter and I attached my sentiment to her hands.


There is a new prize offered every week on the ATS Challenge blog but make sure you use a stamp that is sold in the All That Scraps store
if you want to be eligible to win! ATS carries a wide range of stamps which gives you quite a selection to choose from. You have until 10 PM on the Tuesday following each challenge to link your entry to the ATS Blog. Good luck!

Have a beautiful day and thanks so much for stopping by!
