Gift card.




 This is a small gift card, it measures at its widest only 2.5 inches.
This weeks challenge at Just for fun is to  try a format that you haven't used before. I can honestly say I haven't  made this shape of card ever  and  perhaps next time would go a bit larger.

I created the base card using a variety of stamps and Vintage Photo ink, marking approx where the template would go, before I stamped the words.   I was lucky and seem to have found the right spot.
Then I used Shabby Shutters and Victorian Velvet distress inks to shade the edges etc.
It was then just a matter of folding  up the petals and finding a butterfly to decorate . When I eventually use this gift card, I think I will be including a seperate personal message inside.

This piece will also fit the challenge at Crafty Cardmakers Spotlight 
where the theme was to design your own background paper.
Both of these super challenges have a variety of inspirational pieces, please go take a look.

Thankyou for stopping by to take a look at mine. I realy appreciate your comments.
