2-in-1 Card & Gift Card Holder handmade in fall neutrals

Not long ago I came up with a fun idea that incorporates a gift card holder to the front of a card. I thought I would share with you a detailed tutorial on how I make this 2 in 1 card and gift card holder, using beautiful Fall neutral colors and a washed Shabby Chic look. To view my tutorial click HERE

Fall inspired cards are always so pretty and even warm neutral colors look great together against a washed looking white background. Texture is everything when it comes to Fall projects, so I decided to dry emboss the white layer, add really textured handmade paper flowers and finish the card with jute twine! The touch of distress on the embossed background and flowers give the card a sutile mixed media look!

You will find that this card is not so hard to make and I hope also the step by step tutorial is easy to follow! To view my tutorial click HEREDon’t forget to like and share my guide by clicking on the little heart on the tutorial’s cover and/or by commenting below this post!

Hope you enjoyed today’s post!
