And now, I give you... Laura from Laura's Crafts and More!! :)
I am SO excited!! I feel so honored to be asked to be a guest designer! This is my 1st time but hopefully not my last! :) Let's start with a little about me...My name is Laura & I have been stamping for about 10 yrs...And then a couple of years ago I got my Cricut!! Combining stamping & Cricut has been so much fun! About 3 yrs ago, a friend asked me to make her some baby invitations & from then on I have slowly built up a small business & hope to get more customers soon!!
I have been married for almost 21 yrs to my HS sweetheart & we have 2 boys (16 & 13...Eeeekkk!! Teenage boys!!) I am a SAHM & can spend hours if not days (LOL!!) in my craft area!
Enough about me...Let's get to the fun stuff!! :) I chose to make a "box card" today. I saw this on Splitcoaststampers on the Weekly Inkling (If you do not subscribe to this...do it now!! There are some AMAZING ideas on this site!!) My Mom tried this first & told me I HAD to try it...I finally did & now I am SERIOUSLY ADDICTED to making them! (Thanks Mom!!) They are so easy! Here is the original tutorial...I HIGHLY recommend watching the video at the bottom, Trust me!! I am usually a visual person, but after an hour trying this, I almost gave up!! Then I watched the video & BAM!! Gorgeous card!!
Here is the finished card (outside view)
And here is the back...
This is great for a small note or even any flat candy (Ghiradelli choc come to mind!!) but this time I decided to use it for a gift card holder! So here is the inside...
I cut a piece of cardstock to 4x4, used my tab punch to make the tabs to hold the gift card & I used a CuttleBug border embossing folder on the bottom for some texture. And of course added some bling!! :)
Here is the finished inside...
I used all Stampin Up paper (Cottage Wall-retired) &cardstock (Rich Razzleberry)
Well I have really enjoyed this guest spot & I hope to see some of you over on my blog!! Thank you SO much Amy!! This was a blast!! :)
Until next time...
