challenge 32 - gift card holder

well, i was finally able to create the gift card holder for the 'christmas in july' challenge at pixie dust studio. whew.

my first attempt, (as you may know), was a flop and i ended up tossing it into the land of misfit scraps. this attempt came out better. i believe. at least it's done! :)

and i can never resist using a gnome! this one is just too cute!

here is the front (with the gift card pulled out):

here is the back:

i used a toilet paper roll as the holder for the gift card, and wrapped it in 2 different ribbons.

i printed out the gnome on 5 different colors of cardstock. then i cut out each different color and then glued them all together on one - it adds a tiny more dimension that way, i think. i also glittered the little hat. :)

i hope you enjoyed my 'christmas in july' gift card holder. :)


  1. Love it! Love it! Love it! May the best Gnome Win! Did you see there are 2 other submissions at the moment and they are both good!

  2. How adorable! and brilliant! I love that you used a toilet paper roll for it! and how you used your cardstock for him is so unique! I love it all!
    Thanks for playing along with the Pixies this week :)
