Painted Embossing Video & EPB Gift Card Holder

Hello Crafters.

Today's video shows how I made the Painted Embossed butterfly card last week.

This is the link:Painted Embossing.

See the last photograph for the card I made during this video

I was hoping to post a photograph of a card I was planning to make using the debossed painted piece of cardstock but time is running away from me at the moment - but I will get it done, sooner rather than later!

Project number 2 for my Week 7 Challenge - Uses For the Envelope Punch Board - is a Gift Card Holder.

I first made one of these a couple of years ago and really like how it combines a greeting card with a gift card holder.

I cut the Delightful Dijon cardstock (I used Night of Navy cardstock for the masculine gift card holder) and I did the inside with Whisper White (Very Vanilla) Cardstock.

The EPD is used to do the closing mechanism.

If you look at each of the gift card holders, you will see they have been closed in different ways even though they have been made in the same way.

I used ribbon to hold the bottom half together on the flowery GCH and a hessian-type trim for the masculine one.

Both the ribbon and the trim are retired products.

I adhered them in place with two glue dots at the back and two at the front.

The metal buckles on the masculine card are also a retired product.

I love these because I think they make a great adornment for a masculine card.

When making cards for men, I think it is best to cut the ends of trims straight across rather than at an angle as is normally done on feminine cards.

Do you have an opinion on that?

Please leave any comments below.

I'm off to see what I can do for project number 3!

Until tomorrow, happy crafting.
