What a wonderful time away we had in Dorset last week, lovely weather, beautiful scenery, delicious food and fabulous company! Sadly, as soon as I returned home I got poorly and have been feeling yucky for the past few days. That means no crafting for me in over a week so I've been itching to get inky but not feeling perky enough to make anything other than simple and quick! When I saw the House of Cards 'Add a Bow' challenge I decided I'd make a CAS card for the challenge - perfect to ease me back into crafting again.
Bows often make me think of gifts so I decided I would make a gift card holder. Lace is a great accompaniment to a bow so after die cutting the ornate card shape I stamped my new SU! 'I Love Lace' stamp onto the card front. I die cut and embossed the ribbon and bow shapes, attached the bow to the ribbon strip and finished off with a circle dazzler.
Using the card front die I cut a piece of white CS, stamped the lace onto it, trimmed it to size, applied glue just at the bottom and sides and adhered it inside the card so it forms a pocket that I can slide a gift card or money into. I stamped the sentiment and added a line above the pocket with a black marker.
The envelope front was decorated simply with some stamped lace and a black marker line.
Just some simple die cutting and stamping but that's me done in for the day, I'm now off to slob on the sofa and watch Netflix!
