How about a card that holds a gift card? And is really pretty?

I made this card during this video, and it may be one of my all-time favorites. You’ll see the original card during the video. I made that one a few weeks ago. I planned to do the video next week, but the most important thing about this card is the die that holds the gift card. That sucker is on sale until tomorrow for 20% off!

I’ll share the other cards I showed during the video in the days ahead.

Here’s the instructions for the measurements of this card (you can also find it and others under “instructions” on the right (from a computer) or the bottom (from a phone):

 

Here’s my video:

A Yeti with a Beer! Perfect Partners VIDEO!

I came up with this idea as I was falling asleep. I know many people who would love a Yeti with a beer!

 

 

I made a video showing how I made the small window and how I made the beer foam:

 

 

 

For the window, since I wanted it shorter than the die, I cut a piece of Early Espresso 2-1/2″ tall x 3″ wide. I wanted the window to be about 2-1/2″ tall. When you want to change the height of the window, cut your cardstock to how tall you want it. Then die cut like I show in the video above or my video of making the window into doors seen here:

 

 

 

Here’s everything I used for this fun card! Only three days left to get the Perfect Partners stuff!

Glimmer Ornaments! LOTS of Glimmer!

OK, taking pictures of sparkly cards is hard. I think I’ve taken about 25 of them, so this was the best one. But it still doesn’t show how glittery it is. ugh.

If you saw my Yeti card using the Picture This dies, I wanted to use the part I didn’t use for that card. Lots of glimmer! Here’s the Yeti card:

Is It Christmas, Yeti?

I put the negative piece, from the Yeti card, on Basic White. I then die cut two of the Stitched Rectangles dies to make a frame using Tahitian Tide paper. I then used the Picture This die on scrap glimmer paper- just putting enough paper under the different circles. I used the Spruced Up Outlines dies with the White glimmer (from the mini) for the tops of the ornaments.

I added a few more ornaments on the card- ones that didn’t fit inside one of the empty circles.

I stamped the sentiment from Christmas Scottie on white with Tahitian Tide ink. I die cut it with the Stylish Shapes dies.

The ribbon on the side is the really pretty Metallic Woven Ribbon in the main catalog.

Perfect Partners: Pig on a Hill in a Bike!

 

I wanted to make my pig ride by on hill with water nearby. So, here’s what I came up with! 😂

I used lots of dies on this card. Obviously the Birthday Piggy dies (only 10 days left to get it!). I also used the Waterfall Canyon dies (again, only 10 more days) for the grass, the Basic Borders for the water, and the Gingerbread House for the hills.

I first used my Blending Brushes with Balmy Blue for the sky and Bermuda Bay for the water.

I added the Embossing paste on the water like I’ve done in many cards, but I also used the Paste for clouds. What I did was die cut two clouds from the Waves Dies, then used that a stencil with the Paste. ⬇️

 

These pigs are so dang cute! Here’s the video on how I make the ocean:

Perfect Partners: Waterfall with Mountains!

I showed this card in my video about the Perfect Partners. Don’t forget my really good deal!

 

This card was fun to make, but it took a little bit of time.

The Waterfall dies are awesome- there is a ton! I die cut everything on this card.

I wanted to make mountains behind the waterfall and the Mountain Air is perfect for that!

Palm Trees for Christmas!

 

 

You may have seen the video of me making a background that was a sunset and an ocean. I showed this card in that video. I have made other cards that have palm trees with “lights” on them. Reminds me of one of my favorite commercials- The Corona beer one around Christmas time.

Here’s the video of me making the background (there’s two- one very quick and one longer):

 

 

 

This card just used one kind of paper- Basic White! I don’t think I’ve ever done that before!

The palms from the Palms Dies were die cut and one flipped over- so they would lean towards each other. I colored them with Soft Suede and Granny Apple Green.

For the rhinestones, I used the red ones and the basic ones. For the basic ones, I colored them with the Shaded Spruce Dark Blend.

The sentiment is from Sunkissed and die cut with the Stylish Shapes dies.

The birds are from the Waves dies.

Love these types of cards! (as you can probably tell since I’ve made so many!)

Perfect Partners: Pigs in Love!

I do make some reverse stamping and die cutting a few times. For this one, I just thought it would so cute if they were facing each other.

The first thing I did was make the background with Blending Brushes and Balmy Blue and Granny Apple Green inks.

The tree between them is from the Happy Hedgehogs stamp set. I colored with Blends.

I used one of the sentiments from the Christmas Scottie stamp set. Like I said, it looks like they’re in love!

Here’s my quick video on how to reverse stamp:

 

The cute little bird die in the piggy dies- I wanted to make it look like the birds were flying the banner.

The background paper is the Kraft Paper. I embossed it with the Fern Embossing Folder.
