Spa Girl Gift Card Holder

Hello lovelies!  It's mADDmartha megan from YouTube here to take over the MKC blog today.  Check out today's freebie!  Make sure and grab this oh-so-useful file before day's end.
For my project today, I wanted to make a gift card holder.  My bestie's birthday is coming up, and I'm planning on giving her a spa day gift card... DON'T WORRY!  She isn't crafty so she won't see this post. lol
I have been wanting to use this mud mask wearing Spa Girl for so long.  This was the perfect opportunity! 
I found a couple of tutorials online for gift card holders, and I combined measurements and concepts from all of them into one.  I assembled my gift card holder to see how big I wanted to make my girl.  Once I had done that, I sized her to about the size I wanted and arranged the pieces in my software.  I put all my paper on one mat.  I hate loading and reloading!
And here's my mat after cutting.

Without further adieu, the finished project...
I actually didn't have a shade of green for her "mask" that I thought would look right so I cut that piece in white and used chalk to color it green.  It is perfect in person, although the contrast doesn't show up as much on camera.
And the best action shots I could get one handed...

Thanks for stopping by!  See you next post!

  6. The very first step to take is to select 1 or 2 timeless design template that will match your brand. Print it into a large quantity so it can still be used for special occasions and holidays.
