Stampers Dozen Blog Hop - Metallics

Welcome to this month's Stamper's Dozen Blog Hop - we are sharing some fun projects with a "metallics" theme! 

My project is a gift card holder - made out of one of the Sketched Dots Gift Bags.  I don't know about you, but I give a lot of gift cards at Christmas time and am always wanting to present them in a creative way - hope this fits the bill! 

 To create the gift card holder, I simply folded the bottom of the bag about 2 inches.  I wrapped a piece of the gorgeous Very Vanilla Subtle stripes ribbon - love this - and tied this with a small piece of gold cording.  I also tucked a piece of a tea lace doily under the ribbon.  

My ornament was created with gold glimmer paper and the Delicate Ornament thinlit dies.  For ease in cutting this detailed image, I used the new Precision Plate for the Big Shot.  I must confess I didn't think I "needed" the precison plate - but have grown to love it - it is perfect for any detailed cuts.  I added a bit of the red pom pom trim and a gold bow made from the gold cording. 
Behind the ornament, I added a piece of  Very Vanilla cardstock - the 1 3/4 inch circle punch fit perfectly behind the ornament piece.  

"Merry" is from the Christmas Greeting thinlits dies, and cut from a piece of Gold Foil paper. 

Here's a photo of the insert that holds the gift card.
