SU Festive Flurry

SU Festive Flurry with More Merry Messages

I have been playing with my SU Festive Flurry Stamp set a lot and even used in the last two months for my classes but have not posted many things showcasing it so I decided it was up to bat for Dynamic Duos # 83 this week.

It’s a Subtles challenge but boy is Marina Mist a statement color in my opinion. I used my Envelope Punch Board to create this Gift Card Holder… or Gift Certificate in this case.

To make the holder:

1. Start with a 4 1/4 inch by 11 inch piece of cardstock and score on the long side at 2 inches, 7 1/4 inches, and 7 3/8 inches.
2. Place the short end of the longest part that you scored on the Envelope Punch Board and punch (no scoring)  at 1 inch and 3 1/4 inches. Essentially you are punching in 1 inch on each side.
3. Fold in on the score lines. The 7 1/4 and 7 3/8 inch scores create somewhat of a matchbox fold.
4. You can fold the tabs in either way. I chose to have the middle tab out but many images I saw of this kind of card have the middle tab tucked in.
5. Decorate as desired…I simply put bordered DSP in about 1/4 inch on each Crumb Cake panel.

I just love Blue and Silver together so it was an easy decision for me to choose my + ONE with Midnight Muse this week at the Dynamic Duos # 81.

I also looooooove the SU Glimmer paper- it is so bright and dazzling on a card. I used it as a border around my white Stylish Stripes embossing folder that serves as a background for the SU Be Merry Tag decorated with a SU Festive Flurry snowflake. I masked off the to: and from: that is on the stamp at the bottom and replaced it with a bow made from the SU Midnight Muse Satin Stitched Ribbon and the 1/8 inch Silver ribbon. Don’t forget that the Satin Stitched ribbon is on the big Holiday Sale List;)
