Ciipped up Gift Card Holders

I am so pleased with the way my gift card holders turned out this year.  They are done with Miran, Aurora Wings, and Vilda digital stamps, various designer papers and holly and merry christmas script embossing folders. Glitter, Wink of Stella, some Stampin Up stamps, and ribbon finish them up, ready for gift cards or a  bill or two tucked in for Christmas. Background paper and bow is by Snickerdoodle Designs by Karen.  The pretty little clip is a new binder clip action created by Panos FX.  Be sure to click on the image below to view it in more detail.

Winter Sophia

This sweet big eyed Sophia is a Square Card, edged in white acrylic paint, mounted on green, and finished with Papertrey In's PTD0701 Holiday Double Cuts, cut on green foil and white covered with snow.  The artpiece has her hatband touched with  3 Dcrystal glaze, and the scarf glistening with white enamel dots, clear snowballs, and diamond Stickles and rhinestons.The off center edge glitter strip is a green holographic line from Pop Ups  Etc.  She's my last entry for this month's Anything Goes Challenge #71

Art by Miran---Anything Goes Challenge #71

This is Miran's Warm Winter Wishes.  I created several cards with this graphic last year
but this year, she's spectacular.  She's freckle faced and in a blizzard of enamel dots, rhinestones, silver pearl and dazzling diamond glitter.  She's colored in Prismacolor colors, and finished with a medallion created by Tracy  Wray with a matching bow finishing her scarf.  The green foil snowflake cuts (that photograph poorly) are mounted on  my new"cable knit" embossed base cardstock (SU Crumb cake)  She's created for the Anything Goes Challenge #71

Winter Alyssa

Winter Alyssa was just SO much fun to do for the November Progressive  Challenge Art by Miran's facebook album.  The sweet silver haired Alyssa is mounted on  royal blue foil paper, accented with diamond snowflakes. She's finished in prismacolor pencils, and touched with wink of stella and Glistening snow-writer.  The edges of the artpiece are distressed and inked with acrylic paint and snowriter.  This is one of my favorite progressives and one of my favorite cards for this Holiday season.
