Simple Sentiment Gift Card

Happy Friday!  I just love a long weekend, and am looking forward to a day of relaxing at home with Mark.  Hooray for holiday weekends!  Today I'm sharing a simple card/gift I made for my sister's birthday.

I started by making a little gift card holder out of Labels 14 Nestabilities.  I cut two of the largest size from the Simple Stories Happy days paper, cutting one piece in half for the front pocket.  I used the largest die as a stencil to trace a larger mat and hand cut the Pear Pizazz layer.  A fun little circus border across the top of the pocket, plus a pop up of one of the balloons gives a whimsical feel to it.

The birthday blessings sentiment is from the Blessings set, which is one of over 60 products marked 35% off this weekend during Verve's Black Friday weekend sale!  Woohoo!  It's on a sentiment flag die cut and clipped over the top with a mini library clip, so you can still pull the gift card out.  I finished with some rhinestone accents from Pizzazz Aplenty, then a little taffeta bow and a sizzix embossed background.

That's all from my little corner of the world today! Have a fabulous weekend!
