Gift card holder for a gamer


My son, like most other tweens, loves playing games. XBox, Playstation, Nintendo. . . . all that stuff. So when his friend’s birthday rolled around, instead of worrying about which game he wanted and still didn’t have, we went to GameStop and picked up a gift card. I love shopping for personal, meaningful gifts but sometimes . . .  it just doesn’t happen, ya know?

I thought this image from Mo’s Digital Pencil would be perfect for a gift card holder, so I downloaded and printed it on Gina K’s cardstock and then colored with Copics. The card itself is made of some bluejean-y Core’dinations cardstock with a little bit of SU! Red and some metallic silver fancy paper from who knows which company. Little letter stickers from Making Memories and red ribbon from my stash were used, too.  The finished card is normal sized card with a 1.5″ flap inside that holds the card. I just cut the cardstock to 5 1/2″ x 10″ and scored at 4 1/4″ and 8 1/2″, folded and added a little adhesive to the flap to keep it stuck to the card. So easy!

Hope you have a wonderful weekend!

    Heya this is kind of of off topic but I was wondering if blogs use WYSIWYG editors or if you have to manually code with HTML.
    I’m starting a blog soon but have no coding skills so
    I wanted to get advice from someone with experience. Any help would be
    greatly appreciated!
