Gift cards!

Hello, and welcome!

What a glorious day we've had, here......up to 19 celsius, and clear blue skies with some sort of funny yellow stuff........think it's called SUNSHINE!  Mind you, any warmer and I'll be complainin'.......haaaa!

So glad you dropped by.....gets kind of lonely on me own....sigh......

Here's the little set of cards that go in the box I featured, yesterday........
Nothing special, just a set of six  4"x4" cards that DIL #1 can have ready to give, when the need arises........

I used the same card, paper and colour combination throughout.
I embossed the paper and black card strip for this one, and the cute sentiment was a freebie....just coloured up the windmills,  and added card candi.......

A little journal card, topped with a sentiment that is stamped and layered onto Nestie shapes.......

I embossed the black background, then added a piece of patterned cardstock, inked around the edges, and a journal spot with an added eyelet, tied with pink ribbon........

A Nestie frame, straight onto the white card base, with a Pink Gem sentiment, and bling......

I used the same Nestie and stamped an Anna Griffin sentiment onto an oval scalloped shape, and chalked in pink......

A different embossing folder used on the black background, with a simple rounded rectangle on top, and a stamped sentiment, layered onto a black Nestie shape.......still using the lovely pink ric-rac......

Forgot to take photos of  the envelopes, but you know what envelopes look like, don't cha?

Okie-Dokie.....see you soon!
