Teacher's giftcard holders

Not really any time for papercrafts lately...but it was the end of year and its inevitable teacher's gifts. I have to say I go the easy route. Amazon gift cards seem like the way to go, that way I am pretty sure everyone can find something they like. So I just made very simple holders with their names on it. I wanted to avoid stamping on it, aside from the name (used JustRite Stampers for that), so that they can re-use it if they want, as a little card holder (I'm sure I'm not the only one giving them giftcards! ;-)) or even to put wallet size pics. It's really nothing complicated or impressive but making that kind of little things make me happy!... :-)
That's what papercrafting is all about... :-)

Good luck birthday

This is my hubby's Grandma's birthday's card. She's from Morocco so I used a Fatma hand which is a symbol for good luck (keeps the evil eye away). The hand and sentiment are embossed with silver powder, then the hand is colored with prismacolors markers and I added a little rhinestone for the eye. The background is simply some heavy duty aluminum foil cuttlebugged. The foil is beautiful IRL! :-)
(BTW Gina K. has a tutorial about foil in Cuttlebug on Stamp tv)

Ladybug 2

This is the "reverse" card from the one I made for Naomi's birthday, I used the opposite frames.I think it will likely be my Mom's mother's day card...

For the little 'Lady Burg"

I made this card for Naomi's 8th birthday. The paper frames are done with the Nestabilities, the white background is cuttlebugged with leaves and pierced, and the ladybugs are covered with crystal effect.
