Christmas Blue Jean Gift Card * Donna Salazar*

Hello my scrappy friends! 
It's Lisa back again with a new tutorial gift card perfect for this holiday season or anytime of the year.
This gift card is great for teenagers and those of us who love blue jeans, 
but also you can write an entire sentiment inside too because it is a regular card. 
So here is the finished card, I love red but you can use your favorite colors 
since blue jeans go with everything. :)

A little closer view of the "jean pocket" and fabulous "bitty blossoms" roses.

So lets get started...should take about 30 minutes...yep that's it!
First, cut a piece of kraft cardstock 5 x 10 inches long then fold in half at 5 inches.

Cut a piece of 4.75 x 4.75 inches "storybook paper" and stamp the "tattered" with "denim mix'd media inx and demin embossing power" dry with embossing tool. *It is 1 inch on the left.*

Diecut 2 smallest "pocket and swirls"

Distress all 3 pieces with your "zutter"
I also doodled with a white signo pen the lines on the smaller "pocket"
You can also sew on it if you like.

Using the NEW "Chox" in driftwood chalk the edges of the card.
Cut a piece of kraft to place behind the pocket, distress with the "zutter" and chalk edges.
Add rustic brads to match the kraft in the corners.

Next choose your ribbon color and wrap around the "storybook paper" before 
you glue it down to your base of the card.
Add small pop dots behind the "pocket"

Make 2 medium and 1 large "bitty blossoms" and glitter using "fairy dust glitter"
pralines and cream and "glue gloss"

Glue down as shown here and add the "hand drawn corrugated swirls"
Make a tag with sentiment in kraft and chalk edges with "chox" driftwood. 
Add a matching bow on the top.
 Don't forget to place a gift card or $$$ in the pocket. :)

Your gift card is ready to go with lots of love.
Hope you were inspired to make yours soon!
Have a great holiday season.
