The Pink Elephant Challenge


Happy Tuesday! The challenge over at The Pink Elephant was to create something with the colors pink, green and yellow. John needed a gift card holder for one of his teachers so I found a great tutorial over at this blog. The one thing I did differently was instead of using the Coluzzle to cut the opening for the gift card I just used my circle cutter and stopped half way.
It was super easy to make and so functional. All supplies are SU. Enjoy and thanks for stopping by.

What a terrific idea. Thanks for the link to the original card and tutorial. I send my mom a gift card once a month (she lives on social security only so I try to help out a bit) and this would be a great way to hold the gift card inside my card.
