Past, Present and Future

One last graduation card — a pretty one for a lovely young lady!  This is a gift card holder — super quick to make — take a look:


Paper is K & Company’s Botanical 12 x 12 Specialty Pad (love these colors and beautiful florals)

Sticker is K & Company’s Botanical Words Grand Adhesions (Grand Adhesions are always gorgeous)

All items in this Botanical collection can be seen here.

Card is my favorite new size – 4.75 x 6.5 to perfectly fit inside an A6 Clear Box.


Bow is May Arts 100% 1.25″ and 1/4″  Silk Ribbon (Ivory), made on the smallest legs of the Bigger Bow Easy.

Button is from my button box and it was the perfect color — OH, my lucky day!!!


Card secures shut with a Clear Velcro Dot (my favorite for this use as they are inexpensive and reliable).

To make card cut sheet 6.5″ x 11″.

Score 2″ in from one end.

Score 4 1/8″ in from other end.

Fold and secure bottom flap up with Scor-Tape.

When folded your gift card holder is 6.5″ x 4.75″.


And here’s the card in the A6 Clear Box,  totally protected and ready to go!

All items to make this card are available at The Stamp Simply Ribbon Store, as linked above.


Stamp Simply Basics Embellishments Kits

I had fun last night making up some Stamp Simply Basics Embellishment Kits.  They are just small little color coordinated kits with Prima Fairytale Roses, Kaisercraft Rhinestones or Pearls and May Arts 1/2″ Wrinkled Ribbon.   I consider these items staples in my stamp room as I rely on them so often in card-making, so I thought I’d offer them as small embellishment kits.  Here they are:

Hot Pink

Well, we had our one day of summer — feels like winter here again — definitely coat weather and a real chill inside requiring those homefires to be burning again!  On the bright side, it’s good stamping weather — LOL!!!

Have a good weekend everyone, and thank you SO much for stopping in.  It is SO much appreciated!
