Beer Gift Card Holder















My nephew asked me to make a gift card holder for a card he was giving to his dad. I got my inspiration for this card holder here ... thanks, Enfys! To create the shape, I used my Gypsy to weld an oval shape from George and Basic Shapes to the top of the mug from Gypsy Wanderings. I also used my Gypsy to hide the details on the mug. I then cut the mug four times: once from cream card stock, once from gold card stock, once from vellum and once (flipped) from patterned paper. I clipped the handle from the gold card stock and then layered them all together. The foam was created with Tulip Puff Paint. I added a computer generated sentiment and a pocket, from Tags, Bags, Boxes and More, for the gift card. It's not quite as I had pictured it in my head ... but I think it works!
