Its That Time of the Year

Graduations, summer get togethers, birthdays... PAAAAARTY! So with a party usually means a gift. The quick and easy thing now a days is a gift card. And what better place to put one than in a little handmade card. So you may not be the most kreative in the gift department *wink wink*, but your card sure is kreative :)

So here is the feminine version using One of a Kind stamp set. The stamps were inked using my Markers in Pretty in Pink, Pixie Pink, Close to Cocoa and Chocolate Chip. TIP: I used my Markers to get color variations on one stamp. I then randomly stamped my images on the front half of an envelope (SU Medium Rectangular Envelopes in Whisper White.) When you unfold and open up the envelope I again used my Markers and stamped an image and sentiment on the flap where your gift card will be inserted. I ran Pretty in Pink Grosgrain Ribbon through the envelope in order to tie the card shut. I adhered the envelope to a layer of Chocolate Chip and then on to Pretty in Pink. And you have an adorable gift! Don't you think!?

And this is the more masculine version.

Stamp Sets used: Be Happy, Seeing Spots. Inks used were Chocolate Chip, So Saffron, and Mellow Moss. Accessories: Tag Punch

Hope you like them! If you have any questions, feel free to contact me.

For now, go kreate... and then go PAAAAARTY :)

I love how you used the envelopes for the gift card! How creative.

I especially love the color combo on the masculine version.

Thanks for sharing!
