Good Monday morning to everyone. I hope that you all had a nice weekend. As I mentioned yesterday, I had little Abby’s 1st Birthday party to go to. I also mentioned that I had made the invitations for the event. If you missed them you can see them here: http://jkcards.wordpress.com/2012/01/04/abbys-first-birthday/. We had a very nice time and her mom made Bubble Guppy Cake pops. I have to see if I can get a picture from her because I ate mine before I remembered to take one! The card I made for her includes a matching gift card holder. I used Pretty In Pink, Chocolate Chip and Whisper White Card Stock. For the card I cut three squares of Whisper White to 1 15/16″ (one for the gift card holder) and used the Scallop Edge Border Punch to create the scalloped squares. They go perfectly with the 1 1/4″ Square Punch in Pretty In Pink. I stamped the teddy bear image from the Every Little Bit Stamp Set in Chocolate Chip Ink and punched it out with the 1″ Square Punch. The greeting is from Happiest Birthday Wishes which is a Host(ess) Set and was also stamped in Chocolate Chip Ink. I used the Scallop Edge Border Punch on the backing for the greeting for some coordination. The small strip of ribbon is 1/4″ Grosgrain Early Espresso (I didn’t have any Chocolate Chip!). The gift card holder uses all of the same elements but instead of ribbon I used the Dotted Scallop Ribbon Punch in Chocolate Chip. To make the holder I used a piece of Whisper White Card Stock cut to 4 1/2″ x 5″, It was scored at 1/2″ and 4″ on the 4 1/2″ side and 2 1/2″ on the 5″ side. I then cut off two of the rectangles and folder the other two and used some Sticky Strip to adhere them to the back. The 1/2″ Circle Punch makes the notch in the top so it’s a little easier to get the gift card in and out. I hope you liked today project and thank you so much for stopping by!
