Floral Essence (page 107) bundle. Do you think I took one photo of everyone doing their make n takes? Nope not a one. So mad at myself. I got busy and totally forgot.

Ok, now for my card; I saw this gift card holder on Angie Juda’s blog. I knew it would be perfect to make for my friend Patty as her birthday was last week. Brighton is her favorite place to shop, so that is the card I gave her, even though it shows a Visa card in my photo. I didn’t have her gift card until after I took all my photos.
I started with a 3 1/2″ x 9″ Mango Melody, scored at 4 1/2″. Take a envelope from the Note Cards package and cut in half, at 2 1/4″ that way you can use the other half for another card. Use your 1″ Circle Punch to punch about half way in. This way you can get the gift card out easier. Adhere this to your card base at the fold. I used snail.
I used a piece of Whisper White cardstock & cut at , 3 1/4″ x 4 1/4″ and stamped the flower all over it from Parcels & Petals, its on page 27. It comes as a bundle with a really cute box die. I didn’t use the die this time. Angie used a piece of DSP for her card.
Add the Whisper White (or dsp) to the front of the card. Now this card is going to open the opposite a regular card would open. The fold will be at the bottom.
I stamped the different layers of the flower (Mango Melody) several times along with the single leaf (Granny Apple Green) and fussy cut each piece, curled the edges with a Bone Folder and layered them together to fit onto a 2″ Circle Punch. I used Glue Dots to layer the flowers and add to the 2″ Circle. For me, I like to do a “dry” run first to make sure everything will fit like I want to. So before adding the flowers, I stamped the sentiment from Itty Bitty Greetings in Granny Apple Green, then added the flowers. Add the Rhinestones to the center and then “wink” them with Wink of Stella.
Score the Belly Band at 5″. I stamped the large flower several times in Mango Melody ink. Used the Banner punch to do the ends and wrapped around the card. You want it to be tight but not too tight so you can get the belly band off to see what is inside. Staple the end and added a double Linen Thread bow with a Glue Dot. This card won’t fit into a regular envelope. I added it to the gift I was giving her. Do you think I took a photo of it all put together? Nope, totally forgot……kind of like my Open House photos……
