I’m so excited to share my latest Stampin’ Up creation with you today! I decided to do something a little bit different for the As You See It challenge and used my Gift Bag Punch Board to create a pretty holder for a selection of thank you note cards.
Here’s the sketch that got my creative juices flowing:
And here’s the bag and the selection of thank you cards that I created using that same sketch:
I just love how they turned out! I wanted to have a slight vintage feel to this project, so I picked muted colours and combined them with sassy gold. I’m IN LOVE with the new Metallic Thread! It’s so fun to add a splash of pizzazz that doesn’t pull your eye away from the focal point of the card.
I used the Gift Bag Punch Board to create the gift bag that will hold this collection of cards. The cards are a bit smaller than 3×3″. Actually, they are precisely 2.75″x2.75″. I find this size to fit much more easily into the 3 1/8″ square envelopes and 2.75″ is kind of a magical number when you are using the 8.5″x11″ cardstock. By creating this size card, I can get 6 wee note cards out of one sheet of cardstock! THIS gives me great joy (probably more than it should, lol!)
Products used in this project include: Timeless Elegance Designer Series Paper, Gift Bag Punch Board, Tear & Tape Adhesive, Lost Lagoon cardstock, Rose Red cardstock, Tip Top Taupe cardstock, Basic Grey cardstock, Basic Black cardstock, Very Vanilla cardstock, Gold Foil cardstock, Lost Lagoon ink pad, Rose Red ink pad, Tip Top Taupe ink pad, Smoky Slate ink pad, Gorgeous Grunge stamp set, Tin of Cards stamp set, Gold Metallic Thread, Gold Sequin Trim, Gold Satin Ribbon, In-Colour Blossom Accents, Versamark Ink pad, Gold Embossing powder, Heat Tool, Multipurpose Liquid Glue, Stampin’ Dimensionals, Lots of Labels framelits, Big Shot, Metal Rimmed Pearls.
Because I used Very Vanilla cardstock in this project, rather than Whisper White, I will take the time to create beautiful matching envelopes using the Timeless Elegance Designer Series Paper.
Just imagine the look on my friend’s face when she receives this beautiful selection of cards! She won’t want to give them away!!
(but she will… because I will make her. MWAHAHAHAAAA!!)
