What an exciting week this is! Graphic 45 and Petaloo are teaming up to bring you a SUPER fun blog hop overflowing with inspiration and... you got it --- PRIZES!!!
Look at what Graphic 45 is offering up as one of the blog candies:
All you have to do to enter to win the prize above is leave a comment on the blogs along the hop.
The theme of the hop was to create a gift. I decided to create this card that doubles up as a gift card holder. Perfect for giving the "gift" of giftcards this holiday season!
The base of my card is 5 1/2" x 5 1/2" and I used Graphic 45's Nutcracker Sweet papers along with Petaloo's gorgeous purple Darjeeling flowers (all product descriptions/links included below.)
Here are photos of my card giftcard holder:
For a walk through video detailing this card, here's a short video:
