Lucky girl, yes she is! Someone else from my stampin group wanted a gift certificate for the same person! What a great birthday she will have. My customers are so good to me! I really appreciate them.... so, I guess that makes me just as lucky! :)
You can see what the gift certificate looks like here. I made the gift certificate with Microsoft Picture It! in the blank business card template. When it came time to print, I did the same, but added Whisper White card stock in my printer, not actual business cards. Then, I added the tab with the new Designer Series Paper Petals & Paisleys with the new Round Tab Punch. Have I told you that I just LOVE that new punch? SNORT! This is a pocket card that fits into the small open-ended envelopes from Stampin'Up. I cut the card stock 3 1/4 by 11, then scored at 6.5 inches. The rest you can customize depending on how much of the tab you want sticking out. I folded some of the card stock over because I wanted to have some to add those colored brads.
This month, you can get any item in the Spring Mini for 50% off! You Just purchase the Polka Dots & Paisley stamp set, the matching Jumbo Wheel Petals, and the AWESOME Designer Series Double-Sided Paper Petals & Paisleys. Then you choose any item in the mini for half off! How cool is that? You can see the Spring Mini online by clicking here. I used both the paper and HAPPY from the stamp set on this project. I just love DS paper... especially the double-sided. You never have to think of color combos, just pick the colors in the paper and start stampin... you can't go wrong. :)
The rest of the gift certificate is pretty easy. I don't have the Office Accoutrement set YET, but I do have the Accents & Elements Little Reminders tin. I added some colored brads, some die cuts from the tin and some ribbon on the side with the slot punch. To complete the gift, I added a little strip of paper and more of the accents from the tin along the side of the envelope. I'm happy with how it turned out. I hope Katie likes her gift certificates, I know she'll love having a shopping spree with Stampin'Up! Happy Birthday Katie!!
