For the rest of you...stick around...there are more stamps to be won!!
Today's new stamp is featuring Buddy, the monkey. Whenever I can I like to create stamps that can be used for the holidays, but also throughout the rest of the year. That was the thought behind this stamp called, Buddy's Star. In the photo below I made a shadow box/gift card holder/ornament of Buddy putting a star at the top of the Christmas tree:
*Note: The other stamp in this project is from a previous release...it's called Christmas Lights (#A112).
And...below, using the same Buddy stamp, I made a card that could be used for graduations, promotions, etc.:
Pretty versatile, huh?
Here are the details for making the gift card/ornament. Real easy!! Cut a piece of cardstock to 3" x 12". Score at 3", 3-1/2", 6-1/2" and 7". Punch out a hole and apply double stick tape, as shown below:
Fold along the scored lines...remove the backing from the double stick tape and attach. The space between the two strips of double stick tape forms the pocket for the gift card (behind the shadow box). It literally takes just a few minutes to put together. How great would that be to get a whole bunch of gift card gifts taken care of in August???
Here's the giveaway for today:
To enter the drawing...leave me a comment by midnight (Hawaii time) on Friday, August 20...tell me what "star" you're reaching for right now. For me, like many of you...it's helping my son get into a great college!!! I'll draw one winner at random and announce their name on Saturday, August 21. Good luck!!!
