Got Birthday? Gift Card Holder

It's taken me a few days to get unpacked and organized.  My mom left the hospital as I was leaving for convention so we've had to do some follow up visits in Atlanta with docs.  I also have a fancy fold card class tomorrow night so I have been preparing for that.  By the way, there are a few spots open so if you are local and would like to join us give me a call or text me today.

Thought I would share one of the cards for the class with you.  It's a folded gift card holder.  Summer Starfruit is one of my new favorite colors.  This color has had to grow on some people but I loved it from the start.  The cupcake is from the Got Milk Stamp Set.  It's a cute idea.

  • The color combo is from the Color Coach...the Sweet Set for the color Summer Starfruit.  It's a great tool if you need a place to start.  It gives you 3 ideas for each color - a Dynamic Duo, a Creative Combination, and a Sweet Set.
  • The Stripes Embossing Folder gives texture to both the inside and outside panel.  Once you own your Big Shot it's an inexpensive way to add interest to your layers.
  • The embossing folder mimics the stripes in the cupcake and the Scallop Dots Ribbon does the same with the cupcake sprinkles. This helps to pull the entire project together.
  • Then add a little Dazzling Details to the sprinkles for that extra touch.  Wish you could see it in person. :)

Now let me show you all the swaps, gifts, and make and takes I brought back from convention!  The container (much larger then it looks in the picture) is full and overflowing.  Just think if I would have had even more time to make the general swaps I had intended to make.  There's so much to share it's difficult to know where to start.

Here's an idea that was shown on main stage.  At the time I thought for sure I would remember who showed what projects but I'm finding my memory is not as good as I hoped it would be. :)  

What a great way to use those cute colorful Dahlias.

 A darling little Valentine's Card.

This one would surely cheer someone up.

Clean and Simple but so sweet.
I think my favorite is the Christmas you have a favorite?

This next card is at the opposite of the spectrum.  Nothing clean and simple about this card but it's so different and gorgeous.

Let me end today with a sweet scrapbook page that I'm guessing was on the boards.

Thanks for stopping by.   If you have questions feel free to text or email me...and always feel free to leave a comment.
