This is the second card I made for my swaps for On Stage Atlanta. This card is CASE'd from a card done by Billie Moan (Ramblingrosestudio.com). I used different colors, stamps and techniques but she supplied the inspiration. So, Thank you Billie!
As I played around with my November Paper Pumpkin kit, I came to realize that the small cards are perfect as gift card holders. My daughter has requested 4 gift card holders to give gifts to her son's teachers and this will be perfect! Most of the work is already done for me--I just have to stamp and put together! I did decide to use the Gently Falling Embossing Folder on the vellum layer to mimic snow falling.
To create the inside part to hold the gift card, I took some Pool Party cardstock and used the Sleigh Ride edgelits (from last year's Holiday catalog).
I used all three of the edgelits (only the tree one is pictured) to make the cards a little different from each other.
I plan to do a few other alternatives in the next few days so stay tuned...
I finally got the chance to play with my Paper Pumpkin kit for November. It's such a cute kit! The cards are pretty small and I don't generally do cards smaller than A2 size--occasionally note cards but these are even smaller. As a result, I made one card as instructed and then attached it it to a layer of Pool Party atop a piece of Dapper Denim cardstock cut to 5.5 x 4.25.
So this little card on top opens for the sentiment and greetings. I added some shimmer spray all over too but it doesn't show up in the photo very well. The small cards came with envelopes so now I will have to come up with a way to use those envelopes. I'll figure something out! I'll be making some additional cards and making them differently. Perhaps embossing the sentiment on the front, adding some dazzling diamonds or wink of Stella. I've seen samples of shaker cards and ornament cards using this kit. I will just have to experiment! What would you do with this card?
