Butterfly Gift Card Holder

This card was one of the favorites at my "Going Wild" Class earlier in the week.
The prints in the Go Wild DSP Stack are wonderful.
It looks like your card has texture before you do any stamping.
Butterfly Gift Card HolderThe base of the card is Tip Top Taupe — 4 1/4" x 11".
I scored it at 2", 7 1/4" and 7 3/8".
What makes the latch — time to get out your Envelope Punch Board.
Put the larger end of the card (not the 2" end).
Line the edge up at the 1" mark and punch, flip your cardstock over
and line the other edge up at the 1" mark and punch.  Pretty cool, huh.
For the inside gift card pouch, cut a piece of Whisper White cardstock
at 4" x 7" and score at 1 3/4" from one end and 3/8" on the other end.
Put Tear and Tape Adhesive across the 3/8" end.
Lay this piece inside the folded card, putting the 3/8" end at the top, right
up to the top score line.  Remove the adhesive strip and close the card.
Decorate the card front.

At convention last week we learned how to do a video.
So, this card will be my first video.
Watch for it to come very soon — my deadline to post it is August 15th.

Zebra Boom Boom

I LOVE this card!!
The color combination is great.
The zebra print with the Melon Mambo accents just pops!!
You Make My Heart Go Boom Boom — this reminds of the Bruno Mars song.
Boom Boom ZebraI used the Groovy Love stamp set (both hearts, the love circles and the boom-boom words all came from the same stamp set).
The hearts have a coordinating heart punch — makes life so simple.
This card is loaded with lots of texture looks — love it.

Friendly Wishes Go Wild

Do you have a friend that is awesome and you know that
everyone wishes they had this friend too.
Well this Friendly Wishes stamp set is just the answer for a special card
for your friend.  You can let them know just how special they are.
You're the FriendThe card base is Basic Black with a layer of Tip Top Taupe.
The designer paper is from the Go Wild Stack.
It doesn't look like anything too wild.
I cut out a piece of Tip Top Taupe cardstock with the
Lots Of Labels framelits — I love those.
I stamped the Friend image with Stazon and cut out with a
smaller Lots of Labels framelit.  I colored the heart with
the Watermelon Wonder marker and FRIEND with the
Tip Top Taupe Marker.
I added a Watermelon Wonder heart to the top and put a little
rhinestone on the right side of the heart.
I tied a little bow from the 3/8" Stitched Satin Ribbon and
adhered with a glue dot.
