Gift Giving Groove–MFT DT Creative Challenge


Hi, all, welcome to this month’s MFT DT Creative Challenge:

Get into the groove of creating gift card presentations worth getting excited about with this month’s challenge. Whether gifted in the form of a card or small box, the presentation of a gift card doesn’t have to be boring and our team is ready, willing, and able to inspire your next project. From specially designed Die-namics perfect for creating slots and grooves in your cards to 3 dimensional designs that will delight the recipient, you’ll find a bit of everything in this collection of inspired designs.


I decided to create a card with a gift card pocket on the inside. LLD Perk Up and LLD Donuts and Sprinkles are prefect for gifting a coffee shop gift card, don’t you think?

I started with a Sweet Tooth card stock base, then on another piece of Sweet Tooth card stock I did the emboss resist technique using Grid Background and Summer Splash dye ink. Next is a strip stamped with Harlequin Background, then a strip watercolored through Bold Paisley stencil. Then I added a Pierced Circle Frames Die-namics, cut from Orange Zest card stock. Next up is LLD Coffee Cup Die-namics, a LLD Donuts Die-namics decorated with seed beads, and the sentiment from LLD Donuts and Sprinkles, stamped on Black Licorice card stock and heat embossed with white detail embossing powder.

On the inside, I created a pocket using Gift Card Pocket – Vertical Die-namics, cut from Plaid Patterns Paper Pack and lined with Orange Zest card stock. I added LLD Hip Clips Die-namics and a Pierced Traditional Tag STAX Die-namics, stamped with a sentiment from LLD Perk Up.


This card was entered into the The Utterly Adorable Layers Challenge at CAS-ual Chic.

I don’t know about you, but I’d be loving to get this card with it’s gift inside. Thanks so much for stopping by today! See you soon!
