Today I am sharing a vintage style gift card holder using Graphic 45's "Come Away with Me" paper. I cannot tell you how much fun it was to make this holder and it is always a good thing to have a stash of gift card holders for last minute gifts. I enjoyed making it so much that I may make some for Christmas, too.
Here is a closeup of the front:
The card is from the Come Away with Me 4x6 & 3x4 journaling cards set. The edges were distressed with Tea Dye, Vintage Photo and Walnut Stain Distress Inks. Four postage stamps were cut from paper in the 8x8 paper pad, distressed along the edges and adhered with foam tape. It is difficult to see in the photos, but Stickles was added to the water, stamps and ship smoke stacks for emphasis. The journal card looks fantastic with the distressed edges and highlighted/stickled areas!
The left side front has a tag, a vintage style key and vintage style key chain:
The back has more of the distressed Come Away with Me paper and the flap is secured with twine:
The inside is a cool hidden surprise. Love the way it turned out!
The bottom section of the inside has a gift card holder:
Another view of the inside:
All of the papers for the inside came from the Come Away with Me 8x8 or 6x6 paper pads. I did not want to cover up the beautiful papers with plain ivory paper with stamped sentiment. Instead, I will just place a piece of paper on the gift card itself with the stamped sentiment (such as Happy Birthday). It will be nice to keep the inside as is showing off this amazing paper.
Here is another view of the outside:
Hope you liked the gift card holder! When I finish the Christmas gift card holders, I will share them with you. :)
Thanks for stopping by and have a great day!
