Spicing Things Up!

Hello All!  Happy Sunday!

It's a lazy Sunday afternoon at our house and I thought I'd share a cute, new project with you today to "spice" things up a bit.  Yesterday I attended our RemARKable Stampers Group Meeting here in Manassas.  It was a fantastic gathering with LOTS of new ideas and info.  I came home really inspired to get things going here in my stampin' studio.
I was asked to share a few projects and techniques with the group so I came up with a few new ideas for the occasion.  This project is one of them.

This is the "Spice Cake Hearts Gift Card Holder"...


This project is perfect for any occasion and it's covered in one of my favorite Designer Series Papers, "Spice Cake".  I love it!  I was thrilled to see that they have the same patterns in fabric too.  My mind is spinning with all the crafty possibilities!  Ok....I used the Petal Cone die for the Big Shot and I cut out 2 of them from Very Vanilla Card Stock.  Then I cut out two more from the Spice Cake DSP.  I adhered one of the Spice Cake hearts to the front of one of the Vanilla hearts and one to the back of the other.  Make sense?  Then I used SNAIL adhesive to adhere the hearts together at the very top on the insides.  Once that was done, I set it aside so I could make the gift card holder for the inside. The gift card holder is one piece of Very Vanilla card stock cut at 3 1/2" x 4 3/4".  Turn so the 4 3/4" side is horizontal and score at 1 7/8" and 4 1/8".  this will form the "pocket" for your gift card to fit into.  Here's a photo of the inside...


Adhere the gift card holder to the inside and decorate as desired.  Here's a close up of the holder...


I used 2 of the button brads to make a little closure along with a piece of the Baker's Twine.
It's a really simple way to spiff things up a bit.


Here's a photo of the pocket opened up.

I used the "Three Little Words" Stamp Set.  It's such a cute set!  Here are the images that are included....


Ok...now it's your turn!  Show me what you come up with!

Have a restful end to your weekend.

Stamped Blessings,
