Before I get started, I'd like to welcome any new visitors from Everyday Cricut! If you like what you see, please follow or subscribe. :-) This is a very exciting week! In addition to my being a guest designer at Everyday Cricut, we are doing sneak peaks of the EIGHT brand new stamp sets that Emma, at My Creative Time, is releasing this month! You are going to LOVE these!
Today I've created a gift card holder that my son can give to his basketball coach at the end of the season. I used the My Creative Time Embossed Gift Card Holder die, which makes this type of project a snap! To decorate it, I added a rectangle of blue cardstock to the front and layered a patterned paper from Teresa Collins on top of that.
I stamped "#1 COACH" directly onto the gift card holder and "Thanks for a great season" onto vellum, which I secured to the patterned paper with a brad. Both of these sentiments come from Emma's Sports Sentiments stamp set, which will be released this Friday. This is a must have set for anybody with kids in sports!
I've been dying to play with Cricut Decals ever since I got my Cricut Expression 2 Anniversary Edition. This was the perfect opportunity! The cute basketball player is cut at 2 1/4".
Here's a pic of the inside of the gift card holder. Of course, when the time comes we'll add a sportier gift card!
