This is my latest card. It's my DT card for the August inspiration challenge at Magnolia-licious Challenge Blog.
Maria is the hostess for the month of August and she has chosen this picture to provide you with inspirations.
And to further inspire you, have a look at fabulous cards and projects that the other DT gals have created HERE!
I hope you will come and play along with us in our challenge.
Now...some details about my card.
This adorable Magnolia image is Secret Tilda from the A Merry Little Christmas Collection 2010. You can find her and all things Magnolia, including the mini version of this, at Magnolia-licious on-line store.
This type of card is called a buckle card. As you can see there is a piece of cardstock that serves as a belt and you insert it into a slot to secure the card.
The inside of my card is really what was inspired by Maria's picture.
The sight of those purses just suggested to me...SHOPPING!!! And the very best way to go shopping is if you have a gift card...LOL...then it doesn't cost you anything! Somebody else already paid for it...woo-hooooo. That's why I decided to make this into a gift-card holder also.
I have a Coluzzle template for various sizes of purses. I thought this would be perfect to hold a gift card and then inserted this into a pocket that I have created inside the card.
This image is called Tilda Goes Shopping from the Bon Voyage Collection 2010 which also can be found at Magnolia-licous on-line store.
