The release has finally arrived! Didn't the DT have some awesome sneaks? There are many to say would be a favorite, but I am definitely excited for the new Gift Card holder die being released. Without further ado, let's keep this hop hopping!
My first project is one using that favorite new die. I always have gift cards to give at different times of the year and I am always finding unique ways to present them. But for those cards you just need a quick holder that you can decorate quickly, this die is perfect!
This die has 6 pieces in it and two of them are panels that can be used for the in or outside of the holder. I decided to emboss the cutout first and just decorate it with the new Flower Bouquet set and dies. The sentiment was stamped and given a random wave look to it to be popped up over the bouquet. When the card is opened, this is what you will see:
I used another cut out of the holder to line the inside and added the included sentiment to be popped up on the inside flap using some fun foam. I added a fun Rainbow gumdrop to the slit.
For my second project, I made a card using the new Happy Bird-day set. Aren't these birds the cutest?!
I created an abstract background with some patterned paper from the YNS Birthday Girl collection. I then cut out the top panel from the YNS Stitched Scallop Rectangle dies and cut out a center to that with some white cardstock. The bird was stamped and masked before the balloon was stamped to be in the background. Music notes were added along with a popped up sentiment. Some of the fun newly release Rainbow Gumdrops finished the card.
As always, Karen is offering a generous new release sale in celebration of YNS turning 9 years old!! You don't want to miss this awesome sale, so now you don't have to choose and can get everything on your list!
