SVG Cutting Files Boys &Their Toys challenge

Hey, Y'all.....I'm entering another challenge....It is with a company I have gotten to know over the last few months of having my Cameo and I really love their product.  The challenge is with SVG Cutting Files and the theme is Boys & Their Toys.  Go follow this great company and see their products in action at

I grabbed this cute file as soon as I saw it....It is a slider card that I converted to a gift card holder.  I'm gonna get to use this card over and over again, but loving it for a birthday gift.  I also used some Jaded Blossom Products including the "I love you more than my phone" sentiment.

Hope you like it:
A special thank you for my friend Abby for the inspiration and for sharing the app icon file.

Jaded Blossom Septemer Challenge - Gift Card theme

Hey, Y'all!
It has been a few months since I have entered into the Jaded Blossom Monthly Challenge, but I really like to each month....It's been a crazy summer! 

So, I have to tell you (most of you already know this)...I really like making gifts to give people!  I sometimes worry when I give a hand made gift the recipient will feel short changed, so making a gift card holder gives me the best of both worlds.  I get to make something for them and they also get a "real" gift.

The Jaded Blossom Challenge this month is Gift Card themed to celebrate their new Gift Card Die
My first project is my entry into the challenge.  I used all Jaded Blossom products to make this card.
I used the Fancy Topper Die to make the base of the card, cut it another time from patterned paper to place on top.  I used the Gift Card Die on the interior of the card base and Candy Charms and Banners Dies to create a charm on the cover.  I used Birthday Kisses on the charm and of course, the interior sentiment is also Jaded Blossom, but I couldn't find the link in the store.  This was a five minute simple card, which is great because often times I am not prepared even though every one's birthday happens each year!

Here's another gift using cash instead of a gift card....sometimes, cash is king!
I have wanted to make this cash box many times....The longest part was taping all the bills
together.  I can report that it will hold a least 100 bills!

The following gift card holders were all made with cut files from SVG Cutting Files.  I love their products....they just fit perfectly!  And, yes...the stamps are all Jaded Blossom!

Coffee set made for my boss' birthday!  She is a coffee freak!
 Kindle Gift Card holder made for my Brother - in -law...I had the
inside scoop he was getting a new Fire for his birthday!

Beer Mug Gift Card for my hubby's b-day....well, you guessed it...he likes beer!  I was
going to get him a gift card to a local shop that has many different styles beer,
but decided not to limit him.  Turns out he spent it mostly on books!
