Gift Card Envelope

Posted on

If you are like me, preferring to give gift cards as gifts (along with some home-made cards of course!) the Gift Card Envelope & Trims Thinlits Dies is a MUST!

With very little effort you have something that looks quite the opposite. Two 1/2″ Circles punched from cardstock, added with a brad then finished off with some Thick Bakers Twine holds it all together in this instance.

The other side you can tart-up as much as you like, or not in my case as it’s what’s inside that counts sometimes. You could even make these into Christmas Tree Ornaments ensuring both their safety on the tree whilst creating a little eye-candy at the same time. Hmmmm… watch this space, lol!

The Open Sea on Sweet Sorbet!

Posted on

As I’ve mentioned MANY times before, having being born beautiful instead of rich (yes, I can laugh at myself – although these days it’s more jiggling than giggling) I tend to save EVERYTHING. Eventually it all becomes useful.

My size determiner is the usability of the products. Ribbon for example have to be long enough to either fit across a two-inch wide tag which thus in-turn makes it’s large enough to be used on the end of sentiment, tag or such.

Open Sea - Ribbon Scraps - JIF

For cardstock and DSP, my smallest punch is the determiner. Thus if I can put a scrap into a punch – I save it. Note the small punched circle on the tag above, seriously who wants to lose a sheet of fresh cardstock to that small-fry?!

As exemplified on the card below, the scrap doesn’t even have to fit the punch completely. Don’t you just love the Sahara Sand Cardstock which compliments this sheet of DSP from Sweet Sorbet perfectly?
