I come up with these crazy ideas. I thought of making gift card holders with ATC’s by putting two of them together. I had to think about how to put them together, I did some measuring and got it all to work.
Here is the video of how these came together.
Using ATC’s I put adhesive on both sides. I was going to use an old fabric paper for the inside of the ACT’s, but change it up to tissue paper after thinking about it. I also trimmed up the top ATC, but don’t fret I always use my scraps sooner or later. With these I ended up adding them right in the cluster.
I added texture with a paste with the Small Circle Stencil. I dried the paste and then dabbed some matching spray on the background. I diluted with a little water and let dry. It adds that little bit of shimmer to it.
Using the Grunge Roman Numerals, I wanted to add a bold texture and colour to them. I started with a base coat of Cobalt Teal, set aside to dry and then added a thick layer of Weather Wood Medium. After the shine from the Weathered wood is gone, its time to add a layer of paint, you can use any type of paint. To get a bigger crackle effect, I used the Crackle Paint.
I added a small paper cluster of stickers and paper die-cuts along with a few flowers to top it all off.
I love the fact the Gift cards fit perfectly in the pocket. Here are a few close-ups.
On the back of the pockets, I made a little paper cluster of some inspiration quotes from the word stickers.
Thank you for stopping by, I hope you enjoy and are inspired.
