Just Us Girls & Addicted to CAS


I totally loved Lisa's colors for this week's JUGS challenge!  While I am sure stampers might think Halloween, I thought birthday gift card holder.

I used the lovely Inspired By Stamping Australian Nature, along with a sentiment from Flower of the Month; Asters.  These flowers are so fun to color!!  I love that this gift card holder is also a tag.  The recipient can use the tag as a book mark!  Dual gift - that works.

Do you like the colors?  Come on over to Just Us Girls #263, and play along!  We look forward to how you use these fun colors~

This is also my Designer Spotlight for Inspired By Stamping.  To make this project;

 
Start with a 3x5 panel

On 2nd panel [3x5] score at 1" and 1/4", cut at angle
Adhere to tag base

Finish decorating, round corners, add a string.


We are being sponsored by;

I used white embossing on vellum with PTI's Rosie Posie stamp set, along with the celebrate from STAMPlorations, Celebrate.

We hope you join us using vellum on your CAS card over at Addicted to CAS!


Thanks for stopping by~
