Sweet Pea Gift Card Holder

One of the girls in my stamp club had a baby girl last week, so this card is for her. I used the gift card instructions from Patty Bennett's blog, Patty's Stamping Spot. After I scored the cardstock, I embossed just the front with the Cuttlebug Swiss Dots embossing folder. I then added another strip of Pretty in Pink cardstock that was faux stitched and matted on Whisper White to the middle. The focal piece is from the Event Full hostess set from the Fall/Winter catalog. (I had a terrible time getting a decent picture of the card - the Pretty in Pink ink didn't want to show up very well!) The rectangles were cut out with my Nestabilities dies.

For the inside, I added a simple mat of Whisper White cardstock stamped with the congratulations from Hugs & Wishes and a piece of Berry Bliss DSP on the fold of the pocket.

This card is really pretty simple, but I like the results.

Stamps: Event Full, Hugs & Wishes
Cardstock: Pretty in Pink, Whisper White
DSP: Berry Bliss
Ink: Pretty in Pink
Accessories: Whisper White Taffeta Ribbon
Other: Swiss Dots Embossing Folder, Signo White Gel Pen

Sorry I've been a bad blogger lately. I thought after tax season was over, things would settle down, but where work has left off other things have picked up. Anyway, I was given a few "blog awards", so I need to get caught up with those and will hopefully have more things to post!

As the person who recieved the card... know that it made it into Haylee's scrapbook. I loved using it as an adorable accent to one of her pages.

Thanks - Jen
