I have a disease...

Hand Down, Mouth Shut -Chris Gale

Yes, I have a disease, it is a debilitating disease and very pervasive across the is called Can't-Say-No-itis, and I have a Bad case of it right now! Not only can I not say No, I now have this terrible side effect called Offering-to-do-Stuff-osis!!!

So, on top of a full time job, a house, a nearly 6 year old boy, an online business, a blog, a weekly challenge, a Design Team and my normal card orders for friends and family I also Volunteered to make 2 Gift Card Holders for a luncheon tomorrow. I volunteered 2 weeks ago and the gal is picking them up this evening...can you guess when I made them????? YEP, 11:30 last night!

I was frantically searching for a template to make the kind that have a little center holder when you open it up, the kind you punch with your word window punch!?! I found lots of pictures, but no measurements or templates, BUT, I was lucky enought to stumble on THIS tutorial for a Gift Card Holder made from and envelope...yep, an Envelope!

Here is what I cam up with using paper from the June Bug 6x6 Pad, some ribbon, pearl and jewel stickers and solid paper from the Lemonade Pack. The sentiment on the inside is from The Greeting Farm Sentiments set.

Stamps: Sentiments (The Greeting Farm)
Paper: A2 White Envelopes, Lemonade & June Bug (Basic grey
Ink: Ruby Red, Pretty in Pink (SU)
Misc: Pearl & Jewel Stickers, Ribbon

Thanks for stopping by!


  1. LOVE the card holders! They are Gorgeous! You did a great job and I must say improved on the original.

  2. I am so glad to hear the disease is not restricted to South Africa only! LOL I suffer from it in its accutest form!
    You have all my simpathy, maybe we should start a support group, I am sure it will grow stronger and bigger than the AA.

  3. You just need to get a cape and we'll call you wonder woman!!! For being last minute, these came out amazing!!! BTW - you're not so described me minus the online business.

  4. Pretty card holders, they are fantastic!

  5. Those turned out great!!

  6. Don't you work best under pressure?!?!? By the look of your great creations I would say definitely!

    I thought the title was going to be related to the Rob Thomas song. You know that I love everything you do, especially when you do gift items.
