Embellished Events, Everything Eleanor, Petite Pairs
Yes, wedded bliss. That is what a daughter of our church was just blessed with. As a community, we celebrated with her at a bridal shower. I just love those occasions! Unfortunately, I couldn't make it to this one, but sent the gift along. Yes, the gift is the card. Oh, first I have to tell you about the front here. Well, the circle was stamped with the Everything Eleanor stamp after I markered only the outside. I didn't want the lines on the inside. The bells are from the Embellished Events stamp set. They were first inked in VersaMark, then inked in Crumb Cake, then stamped down. I used my Iridescent Ice embossing powder to make it show up darker and shiny. The doily sizzlit is such a nice frame for these stamps. Best Wishes is from the Petite Pairs stamp set.
And then the inside. yes, that is a gift card holder as part of the card. I saw that someone made a card out of a 12 x 5 1/2 piece of cardstock. Well, I figured this would be a lot easier. I took a 3" wide piece of cardstock and scored it at 1/2", 1 1/2", & 2 1/2". After that I punched an extra long slit with my word window punch. The edges are attached to both sides of the inside of the card with Sticky Strip. I also put a bit of Sticky Strip next to the opening holding of the gift card so that it would tightly hold the card. So, what do you think? I kinda like it. :-) This way the gift cards don't slide all over or fall out of a pocket.
Thanks for stopping by the Stamping Station. Many fun hours of crafting to you!
