I have come to realize that the best gift to give someone expecting a baby is a gift card. That way, they can purchase what they need for the baby. The fun part for me is that I get to make something to hold the gift card. My favorite gift card holder is a decorated CD case.
This weeks challenge over at The Play Date Cafe is to combine Caribbean Blue, Shoreline and Sunshine on a card or project. These are the perfect colors for the gift card holder because we don't know if the baby is a boy or girl. I just purchased a set of Stampin' Up! baby stamps, so decided to use a couple of the images.
I used a piece of striped card stock for the inside of the case. The images were stamped on the yellow decorative paper in blue then tiny pearls were added to the wheels and hood of the buggy. I finished it off with a tiny piece of blue ribbon, then attached the stamped layer to the front of the CD case. I also made a small envelope (to hold the gift card) and attached it inside the case.
