Need pretty gift card containers in a hurry? I’ve got just the thing for you! These two were easy and quick to make—just what you need sometimes, right? I used Gift Card Envelope Die-namics to cut them from Cool as a Cucumber Card Stock and In the Buff Card Stock—two colors that I don’t use often but that blend so well with the shades in Itsy Bitsy Polka Dots Pastels Paper Pack. After I constructed the envelopes, I cut the big balloons from Blueprints 26 Die-namics from the patterned paper, and popped them up on foam mounting tape. I stamped the sentiments from Handwritten Happiness on the fronts with Black Licorice dye ink, added the string and bow, cut from Sweet Tooth card stock, and some stars, cut from Silver Sparkle Card Stock with Blueprints 13 Die-namics and Blueprints 25 Die-namics.

To keep the envelopes closed, I added a Wild Cherry card stock heart, cut with Blueprints 27 Die-namics.

And that’s it from me today! Thanks so much for stopping by! See you soon!

Twinkle, Twinkle, Little Star–MFT Wednesday Sketch Challenge #342

MFTWSC342_2017jul20

Hi, everyone, I’m back with this week’s MFT Wednesday Sketch Challenge! Are you ready? Here’s this week’s sketch.

The MFT Design Team will be on hand to provide plenty of inspiration to get you started.

I’ve always loved this sentiment from LJD Beautiful Baby stamp set so I built my card for today around it. It was stamped on Sweet Tooth card stock with Versamark and heat embossed with gold detail embossing powder, then adhered to a Sweet Tooth card stock base. The top detail of the sketch was done with Brushed Gold Card Stock cut with Stitched Scallop Basic Edges Die-namics and Lucky Prints Paper Pack cut with Stitched Basic Edges Die-namics and popped up on foam mounting tape.

The bottom detail was done with Basic Stitch Lines Die-namics, and also popped up on foam. My large star was created with Brushed Gold Card Stock, Star Shaker Window & Frame Die-namics, Star Shaker Pouches, and Queen & Co. Baby Beads for filler along with some tiny iridescent star confetti. I adhered that to the card front and finished off with more stars, cut from Gold Sparkle Card Stock cut with Blueprint 13 Die-namics and Blueprints 25 Die-namics.

And there you have it! Remember, you can get all the details by visiting the
MFT Challenge Blog. You have the chance to win a $20 in MFT voucher. One winner is chosen at random each week!

Thanks for stopping by! See you soon!
