Gift card framelit--happy acorn version

Do you give a lot of gift cards? I do, particularly to males in my extended family. When I first saw the Gift Card Envelope and Trims Thinlits (whew! long name!) in the Holiday Catalog, I knew it needed to come to my house. These go together so quickly, and I love that I can make a somewhat impersonal gift a *little* more special.

For this version, I used the Color Me Autumn DSP for the main envelope. You will want to use the Crease Pad to do this, as the DSP is thin enough that the die cuts through the score lines. The "Happy Day" sentiment is from the Itty Bitty Banners stamp set--one I go back to again and again. The matching Bitty Banners framelits (what else?) make it easy and quick.

Christmas is coming quickly, and if you'll be giving gift cards, think about adding the Gift Card Envelope and Trims Thinlits to your next order!

Stamps: Itty Bitty Banners
Paper: Color Me Autumn DSP, Whisper White
Ink: Mossy Meadow
Accessories: Gift Card Envelope & Trims Thinlits, Bitty Banners Framelits, dimensionals

I've resisted this die set, but may have to rethink that decision, lol! Great job!!

As for shaker cards, I have quite a few sets of shaker dies that makes them easy, if time consuming. I wouldn't try it without them. Dies just make EVERYTHING easier!!!
