FWFF...New Year to celebrate Unity!!!

Happy '2010' everyone!

I'm sharing a gift card holder that I made with my December KOM ' delightful moments'. My son and his friends are all teenagers turning 14, so I needed a gift card holder that is simple and could hold an iTunes gift card (at 14 years old, they all want iTunes gift cards, or $$$$'s!).

Not sure if you can tell by the photo's, but I sprayed Iridescent Pearl Maya Mist on the Tempting Turquoise cardstock, then stamped my Unity music background stamp all over it. I put a couple of scalloped edges and made a belly band of organdy ribbon and twine for a closure. I embossed the Unity boom box in black detail embossing powder, used Tim Holtz distress inks in weathered wood and broken china, along with Smooch (almost the same color as tempting turquoise), and tied it to the organdy ribbon with twine:

This next picture is the inside when you take off the belly band and lift the flap up (used black detail embossing powder for the sentiment):

And this is the inside holding the iTunes gift card (got carried away with the ribbon):

Have a fabulous Friday and go shop at Unity!  *smile*

Not carried away - carried off to the 80s! All that ribbon reminds me of all the jelly bracelets we used to layer up our arms! :D
Genius how the scalloping on the front evokes piano (or keyboard - ya know, got 80s on the brain) keys! This is awesome!!!!!! TFS! LOVE IT!
