SDC76: It's a Wrap


Jo is our hostess this week at Stampotique Designer's Challenge and here is what she has challenged everyone with:

"It's at this time of year when I always think ' Oh it's ages until December 25th, no panic' and before I know it I am sitting surrounded by wrapping paper, ribbon and tags on the 24th promising myself I shall plan ahead next year and be more organised. So here I am, planning ahead with this week's theme of making unique wrapping, tags and gift packaging using stamps. Whether it's a simple single image stamped onto a plain sheet of paper finished off with jazzy trimmings, an intricate tag, a wonderful gift box or even stamping your own ribbon, give it a try and see what a difference it makes transforming (very cheaply!) the smallest most basic of gifts into a little work of art."

I didn't go with a holiday theme, but a general every day theme on my "wrapping".  I created a gift card holder using a die cut and stamping the outside with Jo's Star 3051.  I decided to color up Twinkie Boogies on Down 6103 and cut him out, putting the wings from Dragonfly 3050 behind him.

We give a lot of gift cards, not only during the holidays but also for birthdays so I need to get a good stash of these going...I'm behind schedule :-)

Hope you will join us over at Stampotique Designer's Challenge and show us how you "wrap it".
