Sweet and Simple Gift Card Set

Happy Monday!  Did y'all have a Merry Christmas?   It seems like I've been busy every spare moment of the past several weeks and I'm looking forward to a few days of downtime this week before we head into the new year.  There's a new Mojo Monday sketch over on the blog today, so hop on over there to check it out and play along!  I didn't have time to make a sample, but I'm hoping to get to it later in the week.

We've also kicked off our year end clearance sale at Verve!  Everything's either 15%, 35% or 50% off December 26 - 31!

Today, in lieu of a Mojo Monday card, I'm sharing a clean & simple little gift card set I made my Grandma for Christmas.  It was fun to pull out some older stamps and just create!

The cards themselves are fairly simple.  For the first design I stamped the larger butterfly from Blue Skies on a trimmed down fabriano note card, then another butterfly on some K & Company patterned paper, to cut out and pop up. 

The second design uses The flower from Great Friend, which I also cut one layer to pop up, then accented the butterflies and flower centers with a mixture of diamond glaze and glitter.  The sentiment on each card is Birthday Blessings, from the Blessings set.  The plum layers are all embossed with the damask embossing folder, then matted on ivory cardstock and accented with a bit of ribbon.  I didn't take a photo of it, but I used the Happy Birthday plain jane for the inside of each card.


For the box, I just adhered a piece of embossed patterned paper to a crystal clear card box with Zip Dry.  Next I stamped the Sweet Scallop Tag Frame in Perfect Plum, then cut out with the Sweet Scallop Die.  The to/from sentiment is from Glad Tidings and I added the small butterfly from the Blue Skies set to finish off the tag.  Then tied it on with some May Arts ribbon, silver cording and a small little flower.
Thanks for stopping by today!  Have a fantastic start to your week!
