Swirly Snow

Hi Everyone,

Today I have made a pop up gift card holder with matching tag, now I can't take credit for the gift card holder plan, that all goes to the lovely Laura Bassen. Laura has done a tutorial for several different ones at the Simon Says Stamp Blog HERE.
So I gave it a go and here is my project , warning lots of photo's lol.
I attached my tag to the gift card holder 
This is inside and your card sits up, when you open it, I used Simon Says Stamp Stitched Rectangles for the cut piece in the middle. 
As you can see I didn't actually have a gift card to display, so I stuck my flybuys card in there just so you can see the idea hehehe.
Here is the back of the holder.
Finally the back of the tag.

I created the background with a resist technique, I thought it looked like swirling snow, the  stamp is from impression obsession and white heat embossed, I used chipped sapphire,  faded jeans, dusty concord and tumbled glass distress inks blended together. Then I took my white perfect pearls in a little water and dropped onto the background.
The stamped images are from Lawn Fawn Snow Day  / Into the Woods / Sweet Christmas, coloured with copic markers and prisma pencils, also a red gel glitter pen for the reindeer nose, trees and heart, and a yellow gel glitter pen for the stars. Plus a signo white pen for highlights. The sentiments are from Just Rite Stamps.
