**Note** The pattern for the gift card on the "Meet Catnip" post was not printing out to the true size...the problem has been corrected. Sorry if any of you tried it and had problems with it!!!
Phew!! Made it just in time for a post today!!! Next in line of our new designs is Peeking Hoot (of Hoot & Annie fame):
Pull the insert piece up and a message appears:
Click here for a pattern. As usual, cut along the solid lines and fold along the dotted lines. There are four pattern pieces for this project, plus the actual card. For the card...cut a piece of cardstock to 6" x 6" and fold in half to make a 3" x 6" card.
There are 3 pieces that make the front of the card...I cut them out of 3 different, coordinating papers. Cut a hole in the middle of the top 2 pieces (you can use a yellow Marvy circle punch if you have one). Line the 3 pieces up (as shown below) and tape together from the backside:
Apply double stick tape to all the tabs. The last piece is the insert piece...put the insert piece into the piece you just taped together, fitting it between the tabs. It should look like this:
Remove the backing from the double stick tape and attach to the card. To add Hoot and the sentiment to the card...punch more circles with a yellow Marvy circle punch. Glue stamped, colored and cut image of Hoot onto one circle...stamp the sentiment on another circle and leave one circle blank. The best way to position these decorated circles onto the insert piece is to flip the card over and fit each circle right through the punched holes on the front. Here's a picture of the insert piece so you can get a better idea of what I'm doing:
Once you've done that, you can stamp another sentiment on the inside of the card:
Here are the stamps I'm giving away today:
The Hoot & Annie stamp is not new, but it just went too perfectly with the others to leave it out!! If you would like to win these stamps, leave me a comment by midnight on Saturday, June 27...and I'll announce a winner on Sunday, June 28. Tell me a silly fact about yourself. Me? My left ankle clicks when I walk down stairs...so, you'll hear step, click, step, click... ha! ha! Have fun and good luck to all!!!
