Mother's gift card

Now, just so you know, I'm not waiting until the last minute. Our family Christmas is still a couple of days away! This is the card I made to hold Mother's Half-Price Bookstore gift card.

The card was cut from A Child's Year. The frame lines cut as strictly lines. So, I took my new utility knife because it was handy, and cut a little wider opening so you could actually see the frame. I'm thinking that I could alter it in Design Studio to widen the lines next time.

I have loved those eyeballs in Graphically Speaking since I got the cart and now I have finally used them. The book is also from Graphically Speaking. The paper is, of course, double sided Basic Grey from the Christmas set a year or two ago. The letters on the inside are the stickers from that set--not enough "r's" so two colors. The gift card will fit perfectly attached to the inside top of the card in the frame.


  1. This is a good idea, very pretty also.

  2. Susan,
    I have been following your blog and love your ideas. My friend and I share a Cricut but I have not yet learned how to use Design Studio. Your work makes me want to get at it.
    Thanks for your inspiration.
