Our new little kitty is named Catnip, and she's carrying a dandelion that's sure to make wishes come true!!! Just blow and make a wish!!! I don't know if you can see it in the picture...but, I stamped and embossed a dandelion seed (another new stamp!!) on vellum...floating off on a breeze...
This card will be sure to make wishes come true if you know exactly what the recipient likes, because when you pull on the sentiment "make a wish"...the perfect gift card (or money) slides out!!! Click here for a pattern.
There are two pattern pieces...one for the outside card and one for the insert piece where you'll tape the gift card or money. Cut along solid lines and fold along dotted lines. Fit the insert piece into the other piece as shown above. Put double stick tape on 4 tabs...then crease along center fold and adhere. Your card should now look like this:
I have a half circle drawn on the pattern for that cut-out piece shown above...but, you can also use a Marvy (yellow) circle punch if you have one. I punched out 2 more circles in a contrasting paper with the Marvy (yellow) circle punch. I stamped the sentiment "make a wish" on one of the circles. Glue both circles back to back to the insert piece (right into the half circle opening). Then decorate as desired:
Now for the giveaway...here's what's up for grabs:
The "It's Your Birthday" stamp is not a new stamp, but it went so well with this combination that I'll throw it in too!!! Just leave me a comment by midnight Monday, June 22 (Hawaii time) and tell me what gift card you would be wishing for if you received this card. I'll pick one winner at random and announce their name on Tuesday, June 23. Good luck to all!!!
