Hello , it's time for the My Favorite Things Creative Construction with Blueprints Challenge! The hustle and bustle of the season doesn’t allow us as much play time as we’d like. Fortunately for us devoted crafters, there’s still ample opportunity to put those supplies to good use. This month, MFT has challenged the team of designers to use Blueprints to create pretty packaging for the humble gift card.
And this is what I have done! I love the little Target dog. I used to have a dog that looked just like that :) I used Blueprints 9 for my card. I cut the big green tag out, then cut another one out of the red card stock. I used the notched die to cut the little scalloped whole out. I even spaced it a little to the left side, so you could see the dogs face. I glued this red piece down to the green piece with some Score tape, just around the edges, so there would be room to slip my gift card in. I used the stitched horizontal die to cut out the green striped paper and the white sentiment strip. I stamped the sentiment from the Let's Get Cozy stamp set and glued those both to my tag.
For the top, I cut a snowflake out with the Pierced Snowflake dies, cut it flat across the top and glued it down flush with the top edge. I then cut the half circle out with the same green strip paper and glued that over the snowflake. I added a little twine bow with a glue dot.
The flower and holly are both from the Winter Warmth set stamped in Electric Red and Sour Apple dye inks I adhered them with foam tape to the right edge. I then mounted the whole gift card tag onto a top folded smooth white card base.
There you have it! Such a cute gift for a teenager or any age really! Make sure you stop by the MFT Blog to see what all the other talented designers have done with this challenge!
Thanks so much for stopping by!
