With November nearly over this means that Spring too is coming to an end and Summer is just around the corner. Not just in our seasons but also in our Mini Catalogues! The current Spring Mini Catalogue will finish on Sunday so if you want to order anything now is the time to do so – before its too late.
One set from the Spring mini which I have deliberated getting is Season of Joy. Its a truly lovely set and the images included in this set could be used for other things so its not just a Christmas set although it really does make it easy to make pretty Christmas cards!
I found a great tutorial on my good friend Patty Bennett’s blog and made up this little gift card holder. Patty has some wonderful ideas and designs on her blog and I just love seeing what she comes up with. I have adjusted mine so its all in centimetres so if you’d like a copy of the instructions I’ll include it in your next order.
These are very easy to make and a great way to jazz up giving gift cards at Christmas.
I do love gift cards as they take all the hassle out of Christmas shopping and then the recipient can buy whatever they want – my girls love to get them as then they too get to go shopping and spend the money on them and whatever they want – well as long as mum says so!!
I’ve coloured the block stamp in with my Stampin Write markers so I can choose what colour goes where.
I do love my markers and I’m grateful for this month’s promotion where you can buy the single markers for just $4.95 as some of my markers are showing the signs of being well loved! So I am able to buy the single pens to enable them to all look brand new.Â If you would like to get some single markers then there is still time so you’ll need to ring or email me by Friday.
This is the inside of the card holder. I’ve just used the flourish around the edges and then stamped the tiny flower in randomly and used the Christmas greeting on the left side. I’ve slotted in one of my business cards to show you how the gift card would sit and look like. The curve in the holder was done using the oval punch.
I am a bit sad that I didnt make more cards using this Season of Joy stamp set but as they say all good things must come to an end and as one door closes another opens.
So the doors to the Spring Mini Catalogue will soon be closed and locked so make sure you have another look of the Spring Mini Catalogue so you dont miss out on anythig you may ‘need’. Just click on the Spring mini in the sidebar to view the catalogue online.
