Wish Big Gift card holder

At Stampin’ Up! Regional Training in September we made as one of our ‘make and take’s’ a cute little gift card holder. This is what it looks like, although I’ve finally created one in different colours. It’s really easy to make and inside are the cutest Love Notes cards and envelopes. What a lovely gift to give to someone special! We made this one as a class the other night.

I’ve used the colours Purely Pomegranate, Soft Sky, Certainly Celery and Regal Rose. The Soft Sky is textured card stock. The DSP is Spring Break. And the stamp set is a sneak peek of a new stamp set, Live Your Dream, which is the upcoming Summer Mini Catalogue (starting 1 December 2008). The flowers from Live Your Dream coordinate really well with the Spring Break DSP, don’t you think? And, of course, the phrases “Wish Big” and “Best Wishes” are from Short & Sweet (my fav stamp set at the moment!)!

My camera has lots of “off” moments, unfortunately. The photo above is quite grainy. Sorry. Perhaps Santa will be good to me this year with a new camera!!

These are the little love notes and envelopes inside the gift card holder. At Regionals we were even shown how to “line” our envelopes … looks great, doesn’t it!?

Thanks for looking 🙂

Christmas masking

I had some fun doing this card … I played with my Large Star punch to do both masking and reverse masking!  The Large Star punch made my masking a really easy task.  I picked subtle colours … Soft Sky and Sahara Sand … so the photo doesn’t stand out too much, I’m sorry.  It looks better in real life, especially with a dash of Dazzling Diamonds!

I’ve used the stamp sets Short & Sweet and Priceless and added a little more detail with my mat pack.  Enjoy!
