Day 9 - Altered Art Gift Card Holder

For today's challenge, I went for something a little different. I used an old clam shell package for a gift card holder. I scrap-lifted the idea from an item I saw using containers for gift card holders.

I think this was a holder for eyelets or brads originally.

I used papers from Stampin' Up. I just cut a paper slightly smaller than my clam shell and rounded the corners. I stamped my "Make a Wish" sentiment on cardstock and highlighted it with chalk and cut it out using my scalloped circle punch. Those two pieces are inside the clam shell case.
For the outside I stamped one of my favorite cupcake images on Prism cardstock and colored it with my Copic Markers. To get some texture for the icing I used the Sakura Souffle puff pens in pink and white. I sprinkled them with some pink iridescent glitter before the inks dried.

I punched out the cupcake using my circle punch (approximately 2") and then punched my cardstock out in a slightly larger circle and then scalloped circle. I used alternating sides of the Stampin' Up designer series cardstock.

I hope you enjoyed this card. I would love to see any variations anyone comes up with on this idea. I think it is great for recycling!
