Digital Tuesday Challenge: Shop Till You Drop!!

It is Digital Tuesday again...and this week Karen is choosing the challenge for us. She chose a theme this week: Shop till you drop! We would like to see shopping bags, shoes, purses...anything that has anything to do with shopping. It is the perfect time for this challenge since sales are going on everywhere in stores right now.


As always, you can create anything you like, just be sure to include a digi somewhere on your creation. You can use anything digital on your project - image, sentiment or paper!

Our fabulous repeat sponsor this week is My Grafico, and as always they are giving away one digistamp set of winner's choice, as well as a 20% off voucher to be used in their store. Be sure to enter your submission HERE.


I chose to use the Fabulous and Feathered Lou Lou set from Studio 313 Designs for my project this week. This chick was born to shop! She's pre-colored (though a line image is also available) and ready to go in her heels and purse!


My project is a gift card holder...perfect to give to your favorite shopper friend! See the photos below to see the inside of the gift card holder.
This project was actually meant to be given like this...but I decided to add it to the card above so it fits in an A2 envelope. I left the ribbon tails long until it is loaded and ready to give, then I will trim the tails after tying my bow.

The inside has a little flap that securely holds a gift card, mine is red int he photo. I used a sentiment from the Feathered and Fabulous set, and sized it to fit in the SU! punches. I added some Glitter Domes that matched my glitter frame on the front of the card perfectly!


On the back of the card, behind the card I made a smaller glittered panel for my to/from info and placed another setiment from the set which I popped up on foam tape. I used vintage seam binding to close my card.
