Stampin' fun....

Yesterday was our quarterly upline meeting. Patty Bennett, who hosts our upline meetings had prepared some cute make and takes for us. One of our M&T's was decorating the new holiday Gift Certificates. This is so cute and yet takes no time to put it together, which is exactly what you want for the holidays!











How quick is it? Well, here we go....



Stamp your wreath using the Glorious Garlands stamp set. We used Wild Wasabi classic Ink.









Using a 3/4 round punch, punch out the center. Try and get it a little more centered than I did :-D (see next sample lol)






Punch out the wreath using the new scallop punch











Press your wreath into a Versamark pad







Cover with Iridescent Ice Embossing Powder and heat set.

Tip: Do not over heat your Embossing Powder or it will dull it. Be sure to end heating when the EP has just finished melting.

Using the button hole punch, punch out holes for the ribbon as shown in the picture.

Thread and tie your choice of ribbon through the holes.








Insert your gift certificate and fold your card.






Finish it off by adhering the wreath with Dimensional's and by wrapping and tying 5/8" red ribbon around the folded card.

Tada! No more than 10 minutes (it would only take me 5 minutes to make these but tying the ribbons takes me an additional 5 minutes lol) and you have a super cute gift card all wrapped and ready to go!
