Layered Letters and Botanical Builder Gift Card Holder

This morning my daughter and I were up and out early-ish to enjoy a quiet cup of coffee outside.  The temperature was beautiful and it was a nice relaxing way to start the day.  I’m headed to lunch with a friend.  We’re trying a new to us local place.  We both like to support the small, locally owned establishments.  And this afternoon, my Scrapbook Club is meeting.  This is one of my favorites each month.  Members can choose to attend and make their pages during the meeting time or if they’ve got a conflict, I simply create a kit for them to make as they have time.

As I mentioned yesterday, there were more graduation parties this weekend.  Today, I’m sharing another one of the gift card holders that I created for this weekend’s gift card recipients.

I used Layered Letters, Botanical Builders and the Gift Card Thinlit.

My daughter said that she wanted this gift card holder to be a soft blue and feminine.

The gift card holder was cut from Pool Party with the Gift Card Envelope and Trims Thinlits.

After creasing the score lines with my Bone Folder, I adhered a 2-3/4″ x 3-5/8″ piece of Very Vanilla to the inside.

For the design on the front, I used another 2-3/4″ x 3-5/8″ piece of Very Vanilla.

Using the Layered Letters stamp set, I created the stamped image for the front of the gift card holder.

The large dots were inked in Pool Party and the letters were inked in Dapper Denim.

Next, I used the Botanical Builder Framelits to cut flowers and stamens from Pool Party and Very Vanilla.

The back end of my Paper Piercing Tool was pressed into each of the flowers and stamens while they were sitting on my Stampin’ Pierce Mat.  This caused the flowers and stamens to curl upwards.

After gluing the stamens into the larger flowers, all of the flowers were attached to the gift card holder using Glue Dots.  Then, small Basic Pearls were added to the center of each flower.

I ran a strip of Fast Fuse down the front of the gift card holder.  Then, I wrapped a piece of Very Vanilla Thick Bakers Twine along the Fast Fuse strip and then around the gift card holder.  After looping the the bakers twine at the top of the gift card holder, I added a length of Silver Sequin Trim and tied a bow.

Finally, I added the front design piece using Dimensionals.

Thank you for stopping by.
