Pop-up Gift Card - TLC196

I was browsing on Lynn's blog and saw this TLC challenge to make a pop up gift card and decided to play along. A few swishes with the paper cutter, swipes with the Scor-Pal, add some embellies and you have a great gift card holder! Kept this pretty simple but I like how it turned out. I used Cosmo Cricket paper. It's double-sided, so I just flipped it over and mounted the card to the other side for my base. Even I couldn't mess this up. :) Cut out the Kraft CS with circle Nesties, and scallop for the burgundy. Embossed the circles for the front. The burgundy flowers came in a little paint can from Michael's bridal department. Stacked two together, and if you close one eye and turn your head to the side they kinda look like poinsettias. Okay, maybe you have to have a lot of coffee to make that work also. (You tried it didn't you? hee hee!) Added another pseudo-poinsettia to the inside, Stickled the center of all three. I used this sentiment from Flourishes because this is for a Starbucks gift card. Will come up with something clever to write on the circle inside.

Stamps: Flourishes - Coffee With Friends.
Paper: Cosmo Cricket, The Paper Studio.
Ink: Colorbox Queues.
Accessories: Flowers from Michael's, Nestabilities, Stickles.

You were right...I did close one eye and tilt my head LOL! I did it even before I knew what I was doing it for:o} Personally, I think the flowers do kinda look like poinsettias. The flowers match the peppermint-swirly-pattern on the paper.

Your card is stunning!!! I love the color palette and the sentiment!! Gorgeous!!!

Hugs!
