Today a new challenge blog, Anything Goes With a Twist, is launching and Deedee's Digis is a sponsor for this first challenge. Anything Goes With a Twist is a blog for card and non-card projects. Each challenge will be Anything Goes but with a "twist." They kept it easy for the first one and there isn't a twist - it's just Anything Goes. :) The blog has all the rules/details for participation.
My project today uses two sets from Deedee's Digis: Turtle-rific Day and Teacher's Pet. This is a birthday card/gift card holder. You can find one I made with a coffee theme and only one gift card here. A YouTube tutorial by Holly Krautkremer gave me the inspiration for this project.
I used the pre-colored owl from Teacher's Pet as the focal image. The owl was printed, fussy cut and popped up on the Happy Birthday
circle. The matted image panel is attached to a belly band that holds
the card closed. Some glossy accents to the owl's eyes and beak give him some fun dimension.
Two little "file cards" provide a place to write a personal message and tuck into their own little pocket. This card was for our son-in-law's birthday. He always makes a point to write a note in cards that he and our daughter send to us. So, my husband and I wanted to both send him a note on his birthday. Having two little cards gave us both room to write our birthday messages.
Here is the card completely opened up. The two little note cards are in the top pocket and then we put gift cards in the bottom two pockets.
