Day 43 - Gift Card Holder

YAY!!!!!!!!!!!! The time has arrived to start Scor-it Week! But before I begin, I would like to say

HAPPY EASTER!

I must say, the DT and I were overwhelmed with all your amazing creations! There were a lot of new participants this past week - so welcome to all of you and we hope you'll continue to join us when you can.
Here's our Top Trio:
1) Julie S. - For a stunning pot of flowery goodness,
2) Wendi - She was feeling wacky, and we're sure glad she was because we love this card,
3) Ann - Who was pretty in pink with this stunning stamped background!
Congrats, ladies, and thank you for the inspiration :) You are welcome to grab the oh-so-special COTW blinkie over on the sidebar and add it to your blogs~
And of course, the Sunday post would not be complete without acknowledging the incredible efforts of those of you who completed each and every challenge from Sunday to Saturday - Now I double-check myself, but I'm afraid I sometimes leave people out :( So don't hesitate to let me know if you should also be on this list:
Di, Fi, Jana D, Ivy, Karen Lee, Audrey, Deanne, Rose Miller, Alicia, Debbie Stelton, Joann, Maz, Bex, and Rieca - great work and thank you for sticking with us and sharing your wonderful card creations every day!

So here's how Scor-it Week works:

Each day one of the DT members will present her take on the daily challenge, along with a tutorial on her blog. Scor-it Week runs from today, until Saturday, April 18th at 11:59 PM EST. You have until then to link up your cards from any of the challenges for the week. Each challenge you complete earns you one entry in the random drawing for a Scor-it Mini!

I would now like to introduce our sponsor:




Scor-it is the ultimate design tool for hand scoring or dry embossing any paper craft project. It creates true professional quality hinge scores, which is the standard in the graphic arts industry, and beautiful embossed or de-bossed lines for embellishing and accents.

• Scor-it doesn't limit you to pre-measured lines, allowing for total freedom and flexibility in your creativity. When you want to make the same scores again and again, use the included Stop-Guide for ease and speed.

• Score with or against the paper grain up to 24pt chipboard.

• Score or emboss any paper stock, thin metal, transparencies, synthetic and hand-made papers, vellum, metallic coated paper and much more. No cracking or tearing, no wasted supplies.

See for yourself! There is no other board that compares to the Scor-it.

It's the preferred scoring tool designers like Tim Holtz, Michael Jacobs, Teresa Collins, Cathie Allan, Suzanne Cannon, and so many others use in classes and for their own projects.

Please visit http://www.scorit.com/ to see the entire product line, watch videos, view and download step-by-step projects, and link to blog sites.To see the new die-cut cards, envelopes, file folders and album kits from Teresa Collins that were designed to coordinate with the Scor-it Board and the Bind-It-All visit http://www.teresacollinsdesigns.com/


The first scoring challenge is a gift card holder. Now, if you have a different pattern you do not have to copy my card design, but I have provided a tutorial on my personal blog if you would like one. Here is my card:



I love making gift card holders, and they are great to have around. Here are some others that I have made:





I would like to thank those of you who spread the word about Scor-it Week. I will add your names to a random drawing for a RAK, and I will announce the winner on tomorrow's post!

Well, what are you waiting for? Get scoring!!
