A Card for Craft Hoarders Anonymous

I'm playing along with the Craft Hoarders Anonymous Challenge today as one of their guest designers :)  If you haven't played along with one of their challenges yet you should check them out!  Any project is welcome- as long as you're busting some of that stash lol!

I pulled out some of my old favorites along with a few new pieces for this card.  It also features a gift card on the front- I do these every year for the teachers and the gift cards are getting cuter and cuter!  I love how they look on the front of cards :)

I started with a white card base and added the striped paper to the left hand side.  I added the scallop diecut edge to it next, cutting it the same length as the patterned paper.  The Starbucks gift card was next, taking main stage lol!  I added the sparkly snowflake next and then got to work on my sentiment layers.

I watercolored a piece of watercolor paper with various greens to mimic the green on the gift card.  When it was dry, I diecut it using the Holiday Fill In The Blank die set by Avery Elle.  I stamped the rest of the sentiment from the coordinating Holiday Fill In The Blank stamp set with Versamark onto vellum and embossed it with white powder.  Then, I diecut it using a long label die.

I layered the sentiments on to my card and added a bit of twine to finish it off.  I love the eclectic look I ended up with!  I can't wait to give this one to one of the girls' teachers :)

I had so much fun playing along with Craft Hoarders Anonymous this month!  Be sure to pop over to their blog to see what the rest of the team created!

I love the clean graphic look that incorporates the crisp lines of the gift card. You have inspired me. I will take a second look at the gift card designs this year.
