Mini Gift Card Set

This is a fun (and addicting) project. I first made this at our Mother/Daughter stamp night in October with the Flight of the Butterfly set (click here to view that project).

I changed up the colors and stamp set to make it a Christmas theme and presented it at our last Ladies' Art Night.

The cards are 3"x3", made with Kraft cardstock. I placed a narrow strip of Ski Slope designer paper on the bottom half of the card and added a piece of Chocolate Chip grosgrain ribbon. I stamped the "Merry Christmas" image from the Cute & Curly set with Real Red and punched using the Curly Label punch. This was mounted on the card using Dimensionals.

For the background, I cut a piece of Old Olive cardstock to fit inside the medium cello bag and randomly stamped the star flower from the Fresh Cuts set in Old Olive ink. I also stamped the flower onto the mini envelopes.

I placed the background, cards, and envelopes in the cello bag, punched through the bag and background cs with the Word Window punch and added a small piece of Real Red wide grosgrain ribbon.
