Arty Divas Challenge 19

Hi Lovelies!

Today is Challenge 19 at Arty Divas.  This is a FORTNIGHTLY "anything goes" (any type of project and any theme) challenge with a design team who makes projects showcasing the sponsor who often offers PRIZES!

This week's sponsor is Jan's Digi Stamps
Online Shop - https://www.janmahew.com

This time I decided I would use the shaker element I made last time and tuen it into an actual card. A goft card holder to be precise!

Here's how I went about it:

First I cut a card base (tent folding) just a bit larger than the shaker and cut a piece of patterned paper a quarter of an inch smaller than the card base to leave a small border as shown below

Then I used a loyalty card as a template for a gift card to a certain coffee chain which has a famous seasonal (and limited!)  pumpkin flavoured  coffee drink.

The card measured at 2 1/8 inch so I added to that the width of a strong red tape to either side (a total of 1/2 inch) plus another 1/8 inch either side to allow for the depth of the pocket.  This totals 2 7/8 inch, so I just rounded up to a width of 3 inches.  The length isn't so important since you want plenty of room to be able ti see and remove the card.

Add the strong tape to the back of the pocket to the bottom edge and sides.  Remove the backing and stick in place, 

Double check that the card fits...

 Using a strong adhesive (such as Glue Dots) add the shaker to the front of the card

I wanted to emphasize the pumpkin theme so I cut out one of the squares from this cut-apart sheet and ended up fussy cutting since it was too big otherwise.

I stamped a more appropriate sentiment and cut it into two to make it fit better and covered the wording on the pumpkin then added next to the shaker on the front,

I also cut out one of the critters to add inside:

That's all from me for today!

Love, and get crafty in quarantine
