A Happy Hello/Goodbye Sale-a-Bration

5 days left of Sale-a-Bration and I’ve had fun demonstrating these boxes at my March parties from the Happy Hello Card Kit:

The instructions for the boxes are on Barb’s website HERE...and my only change/suggestion to make it easier is to put your card on the Simply Scored with the flat side flush against the left side and score at 1″, then flip the card over so the other flat edge is flush against the left side and score again at 1″. Turn the card so the blue chevrons are on the left edge and score down the edge of the pattern at 3″.

I used a clear envelope with the sticky flap cut off for the “bag” inside the box and filled it with chocolate, my favorite treat.

They are really fun to make, but since the kit comes with 8 cards and envelopes (and everything else to make these cards)…

…I had a lot of these cute envelopes left over! What to do with them?? So I came up with this:

It’s a gift card holder!

Here are the simple steps to make your own:

1. Cut white card stock 2-3/4″ x 9-3/4″. Score at 1-7/8″ and 5-7/8″ on the Simply Scored Tool (122334).  Punch a half circle (I used the 1-3/8″ punch) on the smaller flap edge and the Scallop Trim Border punch (118402) on the larger side edge. Adhere sticky strip to the very edge of the smaller flap sides.

2. On the opposite side of the card stock, stamp your image. NOTE: This image is from the Carry On set which is only available when you host a party and will be retired at the end of May…call me today to schedule a private class 🙂

3. Remove red from sticky strip and fold in to create pocket. Add a small strip of colored card stock under the decorative edge and mount the pocket to a 4-1/4″ x 3″ piece of card stock.

4. Take the envelope from the Happy Hello Sale-a-Bration card kit and score at 1-3/8″ and 4-1/2″ using the Simply Scored.

5. Insert a 3-3/4″ x 3″ piece of Designer Series Paper into the scored envelope and mark with pen so you know where to trim:

6. Remove the DSP, trim and adhere to center front section of envelope. Trim into the envelope flap along score lines, fold and adhere to sides (or remove). Insert card into envelope.

7. Punch 8 layers of Creped Filter Paper (129393) using 1-1/4″ scallop circle punch (127811) and push brad through the center of all circles. Scrunch each layer up to form flower. Spray flower with Stampin’ Spritzer (126185) filled with rubbing alcohol and 4 drops of re-inker (I used Melon Mambo). Create a belly band with the Dotted Scallop Ribbon Border punch (119275) and insert flower brad to secure in the front.

Voila! A beautiful way to present a gift card AND use up those gorgeous envelopes from the Happy Hello Card Kit from Sale-a-Bration!

to purchase the items used in this tutorial and get the Happy Hello Card Kit FREE when you spend $50…but hurry! It’s only available through Friday, March 22nd when we must say GOOD-BYE to Sale-a-Bration 2013 😦

Sentimental Journey (S-A-B) + Musical Treat

Feeling Sentimental may be my favorite Sale-a-Bration stamp set! It evokes a whimsical sense of the past and is perfect for masculine cards, too 🙂 Best of all, it’s one of the choices you can choose FREE when you spend $50 before March 22nd!

To make it even easier, I created these cards with a custom kit that will create 48 cards:

Crumb Cake 8.5″x11″ card stock (120953) $6.95
Black card 8.5″x11″ card stock (121045) $6.95
Very Vanilla 8.5″x11″ card stock (101650) $8.50
Silver Glimmer Paper (124005) $4.95
First Edition Specialty Designer Series Paper (121878) $12.95
Crumb Cake Seam Binding Ribbon (122332) $6.95
Basic Black Stamp Pad (126980) $5.95
TOTAL: $53.20 (+tax and shipping)
+ Get the Feeling Sentimental stamp set FREE!!!

If you already have any of the supplies, you can substitute one of these items:
Crumb Cake envelopes (107297) $6.50
Stamping Sponges (101610) $3.50
SNAIL refill (104331) $4.50

There will be plenty of supplies left over…the only things you may need to order more of (in order to make more of the same cards) would be the Crumb Cake card stock and ribbon. You can choose your Sale-a-Bration stamps in wood mounted OR clear mount. If you choose the latter, you will need clear block D (118485) with it.

Here’s another version using the same supplies (the bow makes it a little more feminine, too):

And for your listening pleasure today, I want to share one of our family’s favorite new songs that we’ve been singing around the house…the music video is incredibly delightful, too:
