Washer pendant necklaces and coordinating gift cards

I found this wonderful project over at Her most recent post about these pendants is 8-08-10 but look further back in July, she has been making dozens and dozens of these and her paper, bling and ribbon selections are just gorgeous. I also found a great tutorial at I am a visual learner so this picture for every step type tutorial is perfection to me.

So, here I am wearing the pendant I have selected to keep. I may add beads later but I did not have any with large enough holes on hand, so I temporarily put them together plain.

These are the first 5 completed. They take some time, each step has to dry for a couple of hours. So I got busy with the scraps sitting on my desk and made some coordinating cards. If I give these as gifts I have card and gift ready, now I just need to create a gift box. YIPPEE!!!! My favorite thing, making boxes. ;)

This is a close up of the details on the card. The card idea came from the 2010-2011 SU! catalog on page 186. I didn't do any stamping on it yet. I can add an appropriate sentiment when the time comes to give one away.

The papers used are CTMH Silhouette creative basics paper pack. I am a sucker for shwoopy type patterns. I added a lil cranberry red for zing and some of our new pearls for bling. I really like how these turned out.
Be inspired! Go... Create something fun & fabulous. Enjoy!
