Creative Crew October Challenges - Holiday Focus

CCREW1013HF - Holiday focus: Wear Something Gaudy Day is on 17th Oct. Use your gaudiest colours to create a gift card holder. 

I thought it would be fun to make a clothing shaped gift card holder to coordinate with the "wear something gaudy" theme and a vest shaped card was ideal. Why? Well, you'd have to know my DH and the story of the Magnum shirt and wild gecko shorts to completely understand!!! Suffice to say he (a) loves vests and (b) is not great at putting colours and patterns together, lol!

Here's my "homage" to DH:

Materials used:
  • stamps - none
  • card - retired SU papers, lucky limeade
  • other - pennant die (to get the V neck), adorning accents edgelits (to shape the armholes), dimensionals, corner rounder punch

When I showed this to DD15 she instantly agreed it reminds her of her father - so I have definitely hit the mark there, roflol!

Come back again tomorrow for the last of this month's four challenges - a Self Promotion scrapbook layout! Meanwhile, visit the CC challenge gallery for tons of other great ideas - the link is HERE.

Thanks for dropping by.
