"Love" Valentine's Day gift card holder- Scrapy Land Challenge

Hello Crafty Friends!

Today starts another fun challenge at Scrapy Land: Love.  The project must use a die from a brand that Scrapy Land sells...which is easy since they have over 40 brands of dies!  

For my project I decided to make a Love gift card holder.  The above photo shows the front of the holder.  A black and red glittery heart were cut from Spellbinders Lacey Hearts dies.  A gold sheer double bow was added for a sweetly romantic touch.  
The back of the holder was made using two dies.  After applying Distress Inks (Scattered Straw, Fired Brick, Bard Door, Vintage Photo), I die cut a heart (Spellbinders Classic Hearts) in a scrap sheet of paper and used it as a stencil.  Next I applied Archival Ink in Jet black to Wendy Vecchi's Vintage Text stamp and stamped through the cut out.  
Elizabeth Craft Designs' newly released Love die was used with more red glitter paper.
The inside of the card holder was has a pocket to hold the gift card and enough blank space to write a loving message to a Valentine.

I do hope you enjoyed the gift card holder!  And I do hope that I get to see your Love project at Scrapy Land!

Have a happy crafty day!
Big Hugs,
Kathy Jo


  1. Gorgeous colors Kathy Jo. Very romantic! Love the way you used the die cut to make a stencil. Great effect.

  2. Love this! The black and red heart looks awesome, but using the negative part of a die cut for a stencil is even more impressive. Love that text stamp too.

  3. WOW!!! Gorgeous rustically elegant card Kathy Jo!

  12. Kathy Jo, this is just stunning! I love earth tones and you have utilized them brilliantly in this design. I love giving gift card and simply must CASE this to use for the GC I am sending to my sister Thanks for the inspiration and for sharing your amazing talent week after week. Oh, yes, I almost forgot, thanks for stopping by my blog and leaving such nice comments.
    PS: BTW, wanted you to know that over the course of this past year and a half (since my diagnosis) I have thought of your kind offer to be here for me. You don't know how encouraging is was just thinking about you! I am doing well, so far, and the Doc. has decided that I can have my FU every six months now instead of every three months. August will be year two that I am Cancer free. Keep me in your prayers! Todah Rabah! (Thank You!)
