Hi, crafty friends. Today’s project is part of a blog hop celebrating THIS new release from Simon Says Stamp…
For both cards, I stamped the adorable dog images from THIS stamp set on to pieces of THIS card stock. I chose that particular paper because I colored in the images with THESE markers and the color goes down great on that paper. I masked off the images and added a scene with Distress Oxide inks. I used THIS stencil on the sun rays card and added flicks of water and THIS for some added interest. I added sentiments from THIS stamp set.
So I’m always looking for ways to stretch the use of my coordinating dies. For these cards, I wanted to create a pocket that would hold a gift card. To achieve this, I partially die-cut the top of THESE coordinating dies and slipped an ice cream gift card inside.
For the second card, the opening would not be wide enough so I cut with my trimmer to the left and right of the image creating a wider slit…
These cards were created for some of the staff at my son’s school for part of an end of the school year gift. I hope this inspires you to stretch the use of your coordinating dies and create gift card pockets.
