A Good Book

This weekend is Virtual Stamp Night (VSN) on Splitcoaststampers.  I totally forgot, so I'm already behind, but luckily I have until Saturday to complete all of the challenges.  I needed a gift card holder, so I used Angie's A Good Book challenge for inspiration there.
The last book I read was actually my camera manual.  Yes, I know, I'm "that guy" who reads the instructions for EVERYTHING.  I found some really cool things, and I'm liking how the gift card holder turned out.
I am just LOVING the way the front turned out:


I used a Teresa Collins stencil for the photo strip.  The camera is cut with the Cute Cameras by MFT from sticky-backed cork.  I "colored" it with Clear Wink of Stella, which gives OMG amazing shine and shimmer!  So much so that you can even see it in the photo!  I took a few sticky-backed pearl and added one to the camera and 3 to the bottom of the front.
This is the first flap you see when you open the holder:


I used my Teresa Collins stencil with Prima pink ink.  I added the set of 3 pearls after this photo was taken, just before it went out the door... oops.
Here is what goes under the gift card itself:


It's the same Teresa Collins stencil, but this time I used turquoise ink by QuickQuotes, just like the front.
The recipient loved this item, and I think it looks pretty darn cute if I do say so myself!
And of course, it's baseball season, so Latte is all decked out her SF Giants garb:


Have a great rest of your weekend, and check out VSN if you want to have some fun!
