March Madness

Hi everyone. Can you believe it's March already? February just ends so abruptly! Happy Birthday to my Dad!!! I can't show you his card yet either (we have a lot of birthdays this time of year) but I love how it turned out, so will show you later in the week. We have a busy couple of months coming up, I feel like I might blink and it will be Winter already!

I just got done making this gift card holder for Project Tuesday, a little bit of a different style from last time. I've used the colours from CCEE1008, Creamy Caramel, Ruby Red and Basic Black.

I felt like pulling out a lot of inks, so no designer paper on this one! I've used the Stem Silhouettes and Basic Phrases stamp sets. I've done lots of sponging, sanding, distressing the edges and piercing to create an aged look. The hardware is Antique Brass.

The Word Window and a Circle punch are used to create the opening to slip in a gift card. Quick, simple and a great way to spruce up a gift!

I'll be back tomorrow, and I'll probably share the calendar I made for this month.

Have a great week,

Some supplies available from Stampin' Up! Email me for purchasing details.
