244- Birthday Gift Card
This card is based on one that was given to me by a fellow SU demonstrator Wendy Fee. She based the design of this on the cards that you get from Chapters that hold gift cards. I used the slit punch on the insert so that you can attach your gift card.
I used sticky strip to make sure the card stayed assembled- I just wanted to make sure it was extra strong.
For the flourish stamp I used the Yummy stamp and only inked the image and not the sentiment- I wanted to make this a birthday card for the swap so I used Sincere Salutations which has my become my go to set for sentiments.
I used beads for the first time on this card as embellishment and let me tell you I love the finished product. I coloured and cut out the flower and attached it to the card. I then put the crystal effects in the centre of the card then sprinkled the beads on top. They will adhere right away and stay- you don't have to worry about the beads flaking off.
