The end of the month is near and that means you only have a few more days to get your hands on the exclusive Share The Magic stamp set. Before that happened, I wanted to share one last card with you...one that might prove useful in the upcoming months.
How many of you have started your Christmas shopping? If you've raised your hand, go sit in the corner...no one wants to speak to you right now. If you're like the rest of us and are barely getting your Halloween candy...listen up, this might save your sanity one day soon.
The simplest gifts to give are...everyone together now...Gift Cards! But they are kind of plain and not very fun to unwrap. Unless you like to do the whole box in a box in a box thing. Then you just might have too much time on your hands.
But I'm getting off track here.
With a little crafty ingenuity, you can really dress up a gift card. And October's SOTM can help you do just that.
Stamps: Share The Magic (October 2010 SOTM)
Inks: CTMH Garden Green, New England Ivy, Cranberry, Staz-On Jet Black
Papers: CTMH Mistletoe Creative Basics, Garden Green, New England Ivy, Colonial White
I used a waterbrush to color in the presents on the band. Gives it a nice subtle color. You slip off the band to open the card. Inside is the card holder:
You can write or stamp a message behind where the card will be as a little surprise for the recipient.
So what kind of gift cards are you going to give this year? You know what I think would make the best card to give away to a loved one?
How about a Studio J membership or 5-pack? The scrapbooker in your life would certainly thank you...it's like giving them the gift of time! And who would say no to that?
Well now...I'm off to "pre-sort" the trunk or treat candy. You know, get it ready to pass around after I take a couple of choice pieces out.
Have a safe Halloween weekend!
