Default MISTI Monday November Challenge

Challenge Title: Double Duty Holiday cards/tags
Hostess: MISTI Monday
Keyword: MSP15
Date: November 5th, 2018

Hi everyone! Thanks for taking a look this month. I cannot believe we’re in the month of November already. This year has gone by so fast!

Gift giving season is upon us. If you’re like me, you take pride in giving people gifts that express your love and the thought you put into it. In this day and age, however, gift buying has been replaced by gift card buying. Not that there’s anything wrong with gift cards, but sometimes it’s a bit anticlimactic watching someone open an envelope, already knowing the contents.

That’s when being a card maker comes in real handy!

My sister is a Postal Service employee of 25 years and she can buy pretty much anything she wants or needs. So, gift card giving makes it easier figuring out what to give her. A big part of my gift to her is in the presentation and that is where this month’s challenge idea was born.

This month I’d like to see a project that serves double duty as a card or tag plus the addition of a gift card holder.

Below is my tag that doubles as the gift with the card holder on the back. It also coordinates with her Christmas card I’ll be sending in the mail.











The MISTI was crucial in this months challenge project with helping me align my stamping on the die cut pieces and being able to stamp multiple times in the precise place needed to get clear, crisp results with my inking.


I remember how frustrating it was before I discovered the MISTI. This project would have taken me forever, IF I actually completed it, quitting out of frustration.


This month, please show me how you incorporate gift card giving into your cards or other projects. I took a picture of both the tag and the card, but the tag is my challenge piece.


Have a great Thanksgiving with your family and friends. So glad you are here and I'm thankful for having this wonderful challenge for another month.

Made my card for this challenge...made a friend card with a tag since I have no use for tags as an individual item. Sending this to a friend I've known for 33 years!
