A Thank You Gift Card - Cheep Talk

Have you ever lost something you thought you would never get back?  Well...Tuesday around midnight I went to use my IPad and couldn't find it.  Back tracking my steps I felt certain I had left it in the front of the grocery cart that morning!  I called Kroger to find that they were closed so I couldn't sleep all night.
The next morning I drove to Kroger hoping it was there and yet feeling sure it was gone.

To my was found and given to customer service.  So today's card is a thank you card for the person who returned it.

I decided to use one of my favorite retiring stamp sets... Cheep Talk.  It has two really cute birds that I use often.  The card I decided on is one of my go to gift card holders. I'm not sure exactly where I learned to make this card but there are several You Tube videos out there that will show you step by step.

When you untie the ribbon the Top Note opens and there is a gift or money holder inside. 

It looks complicated but it's really very simple.

Remember...time is running out to order any retiring stamp sets you might be interested in.  If you are interested in Cheep Talk or any others please make sure you place your order by June 30.  The new catty comes out July 1...are you as excited as I am?

    I love this card, so clever and quite pretty. I also love stampin up!

  2. Thank you for the kind comment. I love SU so much I had to become a demo to save money! Now I'd like to take it to the next level. I'm going to convention this month and have 100s of swaps to make...hence no posts for a week! Plus I haven't played on Outlawz and I miss it.
    I am a follower of your blog and enjoy visiting.
