Cupcakes for Your Birthday.

This weeks challenge is to create a gift card holder.
I personally LOVE gift cards and I know I seem to be the minority when it comes to the debate of, to gift card or not to gift card but honestly I'd much rather receive a gift card for a place I like to shop than receive a present I need to pretend to like and then either need to try and find a way to return it or end up giving said present away. The only down side I see of receiving a gift card is if the giver is TOTALLY oblivious and buys you a card for a place you'd never shop but if thats the case you're guaranteed you wouldn't like their present either. Ok so I defended my stance and now on to this weeks project. I have created gift card holders in the past and have posted them on here and here so I needed to come up with a different type this time.  I went to http://www.splitcoaststampers.com/ to gain some inspiration and found exactly what I was looking for.  Yes even design team members need inspiration once in a while.... LOL. Ok I can't speak for anyone else but I always need help hee hee :) so I made my version of their tutorial hope you enjoy.

This is a little card that fits in the second Coin Envelope
Used ProMarkers to color all of the images, glossy accents on the cherry, glitter spica pen on the cupcake and distress ink on the edges.

You put the gift card in the front coin envelope
(the cupcake card is actually in the second coin envelope thats hidden behind the first)


 Front of gift holder, trying to show the glitter on the cupcakes and the glossy accents on the "chocolate" on the strawberries. mmmmmm chocolate and strawberries.

@Lady DaDa it is easy. Just remember to make it your own and don't worry about making it look exactly like the one you are getting the idea from.
