Hello to all my stamping peeps out there! Today I'll be sharing one of the projects my Stampers Club gals are making this week: it's an Ornament Gift Card holder.
I first saw this on my friend Sylvie's blog, and knew it would be such a fun idea. Plus it gave me an excuse to use my Big Shot in a few more ways, as the large Scallop Circle and little envelope were both made using Sizzix Bigz dies.
Here's the front, that can act as an ornament (or you can always tuck it in a large square envelope)
and here's the back, that has a built-in pouch to add a Gift Card or little note from you! We also made some cute matching mini cards with envelopes using the "Deck the Halls" stamp set and some judicious sponging using the Scallop Edge punch as a template & sponge daubers. Fun times!
A quick note to all you Cuttlebug users out there -- yes, the Bigz dies DO work in the green machine. So you can order whichever ones you want and happily cut out shapes to your hearts content.)
A few of you asked me what time I'll be on Breakfast Television tomorrow morning, and the answer is sometime between 7 and 9am. Not very specific, sorry, but that's all I know so far! Hopefully you'll get a chance to see me live -- please try not to snicker at me TOO loudly :)
