Do you ever need a quick card?  If you answered “Yes” then this is for you!  Notecards and envelopes come together under one item number.  You can stamp directly on them and add ribbon and embellishments or just use stamps.  Or you can add layer like I did to this one.  It’s always great to have a package of these on hand!

Rooted In Nature Sympathy Wishes

Rooted In Nature Sympathy Wishes

The Rooted In Nature stamp set can be used for many different cards so I chose it for this sympathy card.  The greeting really does sum up the feelings I have when I hear of a death so it was very appropriate for my card.  The dies that coordinate with this set are easy to use with the Big Shot.  Coordinating Baker’s Twine that ties the card base and the first layer together completes this special card for a loved one.

Each guest was given tickets for activities like RSVP, bringing their new catalogue, bringing a card made with current products, placing an order and joining a class or club!

Magnolia Painted Poinsettias Gift Card Holder

Magnolia Painted Poinsettias Gift Card Holder

Here’s a really cute gift card holder – just in time for Christmas giving!  With all the Christmas shows on TV, you’ll have plenty of time to colour the Designer Series Paper for a card or two.  Any of the DSP could be used but I’ve wanted to try this technique for a while and today was the day.  I love how it turned out so I may have to make a few more!

These are the products used:

You can see more details and add them to you craft room by clicking on the pictures or the description.

Now I’ll tell you how I made this:

  1. Cut Basic Black Cardstock at 4-1/4″ x 11” – Fold in 1/2 to create standard card size of 5-1/2″ x 4-1/4″.
  2. Cut Real Red Cardstock at 3-1/2″ x 5-1/2″. Use Tuxedo Memento Black Ink to stamp greeting from the Itty Bitty Stamp set on Real Red Cardstock. Punch greeting out with the 1-3/8″ Circle Punch. Use Snail Adhesive to attach the Real Red layer with a hole punched out of it to the front of the card base.
  3. Cut Magnolia Lane Designer Series Paper at 3″ x 8″. Use Real Red Stampin’ Blends to colour the flowers resulting in them looking like poinsettia flowers! Shade colouring if desired. Use Snail Adhesive to attach to the front of the card base. Fold at the bottom edge of the card.
  4. Use the 1-1/2″ Circle Punch to create a thumb hold at the bottom of the DSP. This will allow for easier insertion and removal of the gift card.
  5. Use Multipurpose Liquid Glue to attach the outside edges to the back of the front side of the card base. Insert a gift card.
  6. Use Stampin’ Dimensionals to attach the greeting stamped on the Real Red Cardstock to a 1-1/2″ circle that was punched out of Basic Black Cardstock. Use Mini Glue Dots to attach a length of Real Red Curly Ribbon to the back of the greeting circles. Use Stampin’ Dimensionals to attach to the card front.
  7. Use Tuxedo Memento Black Ink to stamp greeting from the So Many Stars Stamp set on Whisper White Cardstock cut at 5-1/4″ x 4″. Use Snail Adhesive to attach inside the card base.

Now let’s see how a gift card fits in the holder!

That’s not a “real” gift card in the picture – I have a habit of saving all hotel key cards to use for card making techniques like the “Shaving Cream Technique” and it looks like this card was an ID card from our Mediterranean Cruise in 2015!

This is just one sample of a gift card holder – you can see a Candy Cane Christmas one here and an easy gift card holder here.
