Vintage gift card holder

This project won the Unibind Photo Creator July competition- thanks
This project was published in Gingerscrapstreet magazine Nov. 2011 issue
About 2 weeks ago I signed for a Unibind FB page challenge.. I didn't really know what I am going to get for this one and I was very happy to get.. Chipboards.. Great, hard, balck and blue covered book boards were the perfect piece to alter and Pink Paislee and Petaloo products were the perfect  products to use. First I tried to use my Bind it all - but those chips  were much too thick for this device, so I made the holes with  my loved CAD and still didn't have a clue what I am going to craft. So here is the final result: my vintage fancy gift holder with Maya Road Kraft envelope for the gift card inside.And I also couldn't resist to add one CLD die cut butterfly, some TH metal pieces, lots of ribbons, some vintage and regular buttons. As for techinques  most of PP ephimera pieces were  inked, Petaloo flowers were  watered and inked and covered with 3d glue, I made some hand cuts and stamped a sentiment. I really  like the result

And some challenges too
Ribbon, crystals, pop dots from the list for Desert Island challenges
