Earlier this month, my Clean and Simple stampers at Seniors and CTK wanted to make a graduation card / gift card or money holder. Not really having too much of a grad selection on my stamp shelf, I responded with this Up, Up and Away Card.
Today I’m sharing another similar card featuring the Reason To Smile Stamp set… well, actually two similar versions of one card! Clear as mud? LOL… you’ll see!
A standard A2 card, the completed money holder measures 4-1/4” x 5-1/2”. Two stamp sets are featured in today’s card, Blessings from Heaven and the July $5.00 stamp special: Reason To Smile.Sorry for the fuzzy photo… Here, one of the Apothecary Accents Die Cuts was cut from primrose petals card stock and a stamped and punched blessing added with a little rhinestone bling.Wanting the card to be quick and easy, the flower petals and stems were quickly outlined with the fine point end of In-Color 2012-14 Stampin’ Write Markers in coordinating colors.I decided to put a little twist on the standard A-2 Card and made one larger! This one fits inside a standard business envelope (9-1/2” x 4-1/8”)… isn’t that cool? The inside of the card also features a money flap and just for fun, I stamped the outside of the envelope too! My club members and CAS stampers really liked this card size… especially since it fit inside a standard business envelope and requires standard USPS postage.
The Reason To Smile stamp set is just $5.00 when you place a merchandise order of $50 or more during the month of July! For more information on how you can get it FREE read last Sunday’s Reason To Smile post here.
I look forward to reading your comments!
