Hello Stampers! It’s the time of year when we need lots of Congratulation cards for graduations, retirements, etc. I never seem to have a Retirement card when I need one so I came up with this one with the inspiration of Julie DiMatteo. I love the format of the card and it can work with any occasion where you’d like to insert a gift card.
Even though the stamp set Wild About Flowers just retired I can’t part with it. It has the best sentiments!
Isn’t that gift card pocket cute? The trick here is to be sure you put your inside sentiment over to the left so that the pocket covers it when closed.
You might recognize that foil DSP – it was a Sale-A-Bration FREE item…I stocked up and got 3 packages of that really neat DSP!
Stampin’ Up! Products Used:
Stamp Set – Wild About Flowers (R)
Ink – Dapper Denim (R)
Paper – Dapper Denim (R), Whisper White, Springtime Foils (SAB)
Accessories – Layering Ovals Framelits, Stitched Shapes Framelits
I‘m sorry about all the retired products but I had these cards made before June 1st. Keep in mind that any colors or DSP will work!
Here are the dimensions for the card:
Base – 4 1/4″ x 11″, score at 2 1/2″ & 5 1/2″ Scraps for Scalloped Oval
DSP – 2 3/4″ x 4″, 2 1/4″ x 4″, 1″ x 4″
Whisper White – 4″ x 5 1/4″ Scraps for sentiment
Definitely try this card out for any occasion…I think you will be pleasantly surprised at how easy and quick it is. Make a few in different colors and leave the front and inside blank until you need a gift card holder greeting.
Take care and Happy Stamping until next time! Donna
