From My Heartfelt Gift Card Holder. Welcome to the start of my week of Valentine’s Day projects. I should start by saying that Valentine’d Day in the UK is not the same as in the USA. We tend to send just one card, to our loved one, rather than sending them to friends as well. But, that said, I hope you enjoy my mini series. Today I am starting with the amazing From My Heart Specialty Designer Series Paper. It is so beautiful. The foiling is just stunning.
I have used just 2 of the designs for today’s project, which is a cross between a card and a gift. It is a Gift Card Holder and uses a design that seems to be doing the rounds at the moment, so I am jumping on that bandwagon as it goes by. It is basically just a fun fold, but with one of the folds turning into a pocket for the Gift Card.
I decided to showcase some of the heart designs from the stamp set. I chose to heat emboss the large lacy heart using Shimmer White powder on vellum, punched out using the scallop heart punch from the Heart Punch Pack (remember if you use the Bundle code you save 10% on the stamps AND punches). The finish is so pretty, although most of it is covered by the sentiment, which is punched with the straight heart punch from the same pack. Both stamped images are added to one of the Heart Doilies.
The gift card opening on the inside of the card has been punched with the straight heart punch to make it easier to get the card in and out. OK, to be honest, it was just so I could have a little feature on the inside! I have also embraced the ‘sending a Valentine’s card to a friend’ and stamped the inside with a more ‘friend appropriate’ sentiment.
Now, I should warn you that I made a mistake in the video (well two actually!), so please bear with me on that. One involved the sentiment on the inside of the card, the other is a bit of a ribbon faux pas! But in spite of those, I hope you enjoy the project and the video. I am only human, so I am sure you will forgive me! At least it shows that I really don’t edit my videos!!
