It’s that time again, time for the Kre8tors Blog Hop! Yay! This month’s theme is Birthdays and I think this project is a PERFECT birthday card/gift because it holds a GIFT CARD! And bonus, it’s a fun fold card with a Double Slider! Woot! I’m so excited to be hopping once again with so many talented Stampin’ Up! demonstrators! Be sure to click the Next button at the bottom of this blog post to hop along!
I knew I wanted to use two Sale-A-Bration sets on this card, Lots of Lavender and of course Amazing You (for the Birthday portion of the card.) I also knew I wanted to make a Double Slider card. The last one I made was SO long ago, I needed to find some newer dimensions. So I took to YouTube and found Julie Davison’s tutorial. I used her dimensions, and made a few of my own alterations to turn this into a gift card holder.
I made two different color versions. The one featured in my coordinating YouTube tutorial features Berry Burst and Smoky Slate. I LOVE this color combination so much! I also threw in a few pops of Old Olive for the leaves and one of the glitter enamel dots.
The Let’s Celebrate and Amazing You sentiments came from the Amazing You Sale-A-Bration stamp set, and the floral images on the front of the card came from the Lots of Lavender Sale-A-Bration stamp set. I’m so happy with how these cards turned out! What color is your favorite? Don’t forget to pick up these Sale-A-Bration stamps for FREE with a qualifying purchase before they retire! March 31st, or while supplies last!
