Happy I do day {Wedding Gate Fold Card}

Whoa, I love the way this card turned out. It was very hard to part with it, but I guess I can always make another one! I love the Elegant Soiree DSP so very much–this pattern especially.

This is another Gate Fold card (see this post for measurements) using the Word Play stamp set. I especially love the “happy I do day” sentiment, which I colored with Baja Breeze and Basic Black marker. That was stamped on Very Vanilla card stock and I added a Basic Rhinestone accent to the diamond ring. The very vanilla was paper pierced before being layered with Basic Gray and Baja Breeze card stock.

The card base is Baja Breeze, and the front panels are layered with Basic Gray and Elegant Soiree DSP.  After adhering paper to the front panels, I attached the stamped portion to the left panel using a small amount of Sticky Strip. On the other side, I used a small magnetic closure.

Inside, I layered Very Vanilla on Basic Gray card stock and adhered it to the base. The sentiment is from Goody Goody Gumdrops. Across the bottom, I used some scraps to make a pocket. I put mini glue dots along the bottom and sides, keeping the top open for a gift card, money, etc.

Slide Out Gift Card Holder {Buttons & Baby Ducks}

I absolutely LOVE this style of card. It’s a slide out/pocket card that works really well for gift cards. I’ve made this style of card before, which you can see here. You can also view a video tutorial here.

The basics: Card stock for the base is Kraft (soon to be called Crumb Cake), Bashful Blue, and Welcome Neighbor DSP. Slider/Insert is Kraft layered with Whisper White. I rounded the edges of both layers using the Corner Rounder. To make the “window” on the front, I used the 1 3/8″ Circle Punch and Scallop Circle Punch.

Here is the slide out portion. It’s a little difficult to see in the picture, but the reason this works so well for gift cards is the Slit Punch. I punch the slit toward the bottom of the card, and a gift card slides in there perfectly.

I stamped the little duck from Goody Goody Gumdrops in Creamy Caramel ink, colored it in with Copic Markers, and then fluffed it up by adding Martha Stewart White Flocking Powder (using the 2 Way Glue Pen to adhere the Flocking Powder). The sentiment is from the same set, stamped in Bashful Blue ink.

These buttons from American Crafts–can we just admire the buttons for a minute? I threaded the larger ones with Linen Thread and attached them to the card with Glue Dots. They’re glittery and the colors go so well with the Welcome Neighbor DSP Pack.

Finally, I decided to liven up the back of the card a little by stamping the ducky repeatedly along the bottom edge. I colored them in with Copic Markers and I was surprised to see the colors showed up so well on Kraft colored card stock! Now that I know this works, I’ll have to try it more often.

Curly Label Punch Card {Inspired by Mary Fish}

The two blues used here are Baja Breeze and Marina Mist, colors that will be available in the new catalog coming July 1st. The base of the card is Chocolate Chip card stock, 5 1/2″ x 8 1/2″, folded in half. You can see the inspiration for this card here, on Mary Fish’s blog.

I used the Curly Label Punch to punch out the two tones of blue card stock and arranged them onto a Whisper White background, alternating the colors like a checkerboard pattern.

The sentiment is from Goody Goody Gumdrops (a retired Hostess Set) and I thought it would be just perfect for this card. I colored in the words with Chocolate Chip Marker and Ballet Blue Marker, stamped on Whisper White, and  punched out with the 1″ Circle Punch layered onto Chocolate Chip 1 1/8″ Circle Punch.
