Sending You Something Special

Wednesday, January 21, 2015

 
I seem to be on a monochromatic kick lately.  I love these colors together: Aqua Mist, Hawaiian Shores, and Tropical Teal.  I pulled out an old favorite, Star Prints,  for this week's Make It Monday to make a card for my nephew.  I knew I was sending him a gift card for his birthday and thought Ashley's tri-fold design would be the perfect way to present it to him.   I started out by following Ashley's measurements. I cut an 81/2 x 11 piece of cardstock in half lengthwise.  I scored that piece at 3" and at 8".  I cut the left panel with WP9's curved border die from Landscape Borders.  I did the same to a piece of black cardstock that was a bit longer than the panel.
 
 
I stamped a few star images from Star Prints and Out Of this World on the front panel and also on the inside.  I added the fun sentiments from Star Prints and coordinating sentiments from Movers and Shakers Sentiments.  Using Simon Says Stamp Stitched Rectangle dies I lined the right panel and created a gift card pocket for the inside.  The card is held shut with a little white dot of Velcro. 
 
 
I stamped the same star images to create patterned paper to line the envelope.  I hope he likes it!
Thanks so much for stopping by.

  15. Super card. I must say that I appreciate your showing the envelope lining. I usually line the envelopes but I see no one else doing it. Or maybe they just don't include in their posts.
