Hello! Come October, when the new Stampin' Up! Ideas Book and Catalogue comes out, there will be a total renovation of the current colour families. There will be lots of fantastic new colours that I know you'll love, but many of the colours that we have at the moment will go into splendid retirement.. I'm going to be taking the opportunity, then, to make the most of them while we still have them, so today's little project uses two of the colours that will be going.
This is a really sweet gift card holder. I know that many stores
give a little wallet with their gift cards, but they can seem so same-y,
and this makes the giving of a card so much more special.
Here is the inside.
I should have photographed it the other way round, 'cause the
lines are supposed to run horizontally. They come from the Live Your
Dream set, and give a place for you to write your message on the card.
The little flower is stamped from the A Beautiful Thing set, using
Brocade Blue and Taken With Teal (I don't have this inkpad so used the
Stampin' Write marker to ink up the stamp). I love the way this flower
works with the Scalloped Circle punch. A punched out half-circle gives a
useful finger-hold to remove the gift card - really annoying otherwise!
I hope you like it. Thanks for looking.
