It's that time of year again... the school spelling bee! At my school, each class holds a spelling bee, and the winners of those bees participate in the school-wide spelling bee. We give a gift card to a local book store to each of the class champs. Last year I made gift card holder with the Cricut Wild Card cartridge. They turned out cute, but were very time-consuming. This year I was so happy to have my My Creative Time Embossed Gift Card Holder Die! It went so much faster (especially since I had to make 17 of them)!
I cut my gift card base using kraft cardstock from The Paper Company. The black layer is cut at 2 1/2" x 3 1/2". I couldn't find any patterned paper in my stash that I liked for this project, but then I remembered my Cricut Imagine Black & White cartridge. This alphabet pattern was perfect! I used the same kraft cardstock to make 2 1/4" x 3 1/4" rectangles. The cute bee is cut from the Cricut Create a Critter cartridge at 2 1/2". I "hid" his facial features on my Gypsy so I could stamp a sweet Peachy Keen face.
"Congratulations" is stamped with My Creative Time's Gift Card Sentiments stamp set. Now, be sure to stop by My Creative Time today to see what sneak peeks Emma and some of the design team have for you! Hint: it involves the awesome gift card holder die!
