Celebrate Your Special Day|Gift Card Holder

I love this card not just because it is pretty but because there is an unexpected surprise inside!  Yes, this beauty is also a gift card holder.

Let’s take a closer look.

Using a Rustic Rose card base it was cut at 4 1/4 x 11 and scored at 5 1/2.  The one side you will fold in half again.  I adhered a panel from The Good Life prints to a panel of Raspberry Berry card stock before adhering it to the card front.

Celebrate Your Special Day

The floral image comes from the Bird Melody stamp set and was stamped in Raspberry Berry ink onto a piece of Whip Cream card stock and the colored in with Orange Creamsicle Liquid Color using a Small Blending Brush. Celebrate comes from the Dance Life stamp set and was stamped in Black Licorice ink.  Fresh Sage Silk and Sparkle Silk were added before adhering it to the Raspberry Berry panel and then finally onto the card base.

Celebrate Your Special Day3

For the inside of the card. The sentiment comes from the Dance Life stamp set [I love the font on this stamp set] and was inked up with Black Licorice ink.  This piece was adhered to a Raspberry Berry panel before being adhered to the inside panel of the card.

Celebrate Your Special Day2

To make the gift card holder part.  I used a piece from The Good Life Prints and used the notch part of the Corner Rounder to make a notch so that you can put the gift card in.  This piece was adhered on the three sides [do not put adhesive on the notch side] and then adhered to a Raspberry Berry piece before being adhered to the inside panel of the card.

Celebrate Your Special Day4

The Celebrate panel from the front hides the gift card from the front so you don’t see it until you open it.

May all your handmade creations be Inked with Kindness, Stamped with Love.

Week in Review – A Recap

Wow, what an exciting fun filled week this has been!  There has been so much that I shared with you this week that I wanted to do a recap for you all.

The September 2018 Bloom Box – Your Own Rhythm is awesome on it’s own.  I just kicked it up a notch by including one of those jazzy Gnomes from the Gnome for the Holidays Bundle.  I really had a blast creating them.

Just a Note – September 2018 Bloom Box Alternative

Take a minute to stop and listen to the music.  I added a few items that were not included in this months Bloom Box.  I love being able to incorporate stamps that I have on hand to add my own spin on these great designs.

Just a Note

The Gnome comes from the Gnome for the Holidays Bundle, stamped in Black Licorice ink onto a Whip Cream piece of cardstock and colored in using Color Burst Pencils.

Just a Note2

I decided to use the remaining elements that I had from the Bloom Box on this card.  I love how it sparkles and shines.  Using a Small Blending Brush, Sparkle Silk was added to the Gnomes mustache and beard.  Journey Glaze was added to his nose and the ball of his hat.

Justs a Note 1

Sending thank you notes is something I do often so I love that I can jazz them up using this set.

Dance to Your Own Rhythm – September 2018 Bloom Box Alternative

This Gnome sure does dance to his own rhythm.

Dance to Your Own Rhythm1

I followed the instructions from the Bloom Box but changed it up a bit.  The Gnome comes from the Gnome for the Holidays Bundle and he is my favorite of the bunch.  He was stamped in Black Licorice ink onto Whip Cream cardstock and colored in using Color Burst Pencils.  The sunshine from the Your Own Rhythm Bloom Box – was stamped in Summer Days in and the I took Citrus Cooler ink and inked up the outer portion of the stamp.  [I love how groovy this background looks – great technique].

Dance to Your Own Rhythm2

The Saxophone was stamped in Black Licorice ink and cut out using Detail Shears.  It was colored in using Color Burst Pencils.  Sparkle Silk was added by using a Small Blending Brush. [Can’t you just hear the music playing].

Dance to Your Own Rhythm3

To finish off the card Journey Glaze was added to the sentiment, as well as the nose of the Gnome.  A Rhinestone was added to the center of his hat.

Dance to your own rhythm!

May all your handmade creations be Inked with Kindness, Stamped with Love.
