Flaunt It Fridays Challenge #20

Today is challenge #20 at Flaunt It Fridays! This week's challenge is to use the Cindy Loo cartridge and you can choose to flaunt whatever cut you would like from this cartridge. If you don't have Cindy Loo, then choose cuts that are similar to what is on this cartridge.
I chose to make a gift card holder for my project. The actual gift card holder is cut from Cindy Loo at 6." I used a patterned cardstock from the Nana's Kitchen Stack by DCWV. The little deer is also from Cindy Loo and cut at 2." The patterned paper on the deer is also from the Nana's Kitchen Stack, everything else was in my stash. I used some pearls along the scalloped top and found a button in my stash (which I've had forever) to use on the closure for the gift card holder. I wrapped it with some blue ribbon before I adhered my deer to the holder. I stamped my sentiment using prussian blue ink by ColorBox. Both parts of the sentiment are Scrappy Moms Stamps, but the "you're" part of the sentiment is from one stamp and the "fawn-tastic" is from another. I trimmed the white cardstock to fit, then matted it with the green and blue cardstock and adhered it to the holder. Pretty simple, but I think it is pretty cute!

Now that you have seen my project head on over to Flaunt It Fridays and check out the rest of the design team! Get inspired and create your own project! I can't wait to see how you flaunt Cindy Loo!! :)

I also made this to fit the 365 Cards "spring cleaning" challenge; which is to use 2 pieces of patterned paper that are at least 1 year old (my patterned paper is over 2 years old), something/anything that you've had since you began scrapbooking (the button is from a stash I have had since I started...I have a LOT of buttons), and ribbon that is at least 2 years old (I know it is over that, I can't remember when I got it).


  1. This is great! I had totally forgotten some of the things that are on this cart. I so love your gift card holder!! :)

  2. Very cute :-) Great job putting those sentiments together. It worked perfectly!
