Stay Crafty Challenge with Hero Arts

Hello Friends!

I spotted a new challenge going on over at Hero Arts called Stay Crafty with Hero Challenge #20.  The theme this time is Gift Card Holders.  I have a few different gift card holder templates but Daniel was kind enough to share the template she used for her sample so I went with that.  

You don't HAVE to use Hero Arts products but I love this Hero Arts sentiment set called Many Birthday Messages (CL611) and since I was in need of an idea for a friend's birthday ... this will work perfectly!!!

I've used the Tutti Designs Scallop Stitched Rectangle dies for my sentiment panel and decided to edge each panel including the front flap of the gift card holder with a Gold Pilot Marker to add definition.

I must admit ... this template was quicker than the one I normally use so guess what ... yep, the old one is being replaced before next craft show!  LOL   This was so quick & easy!

Challenges to share in:
C.R.A.F.T.  Challenge #586 - Not a Card
Addicted to Stamps & More Challenge #398 - Birthdays
Watercooler Wednesday Challenge - Occasions

Thanks SO MUCH for taking the time to stop by today! 
I am always so happy to read your comments!

As always . . .
