Year After Year

This is a gift card / money holder we are making at the August stamp camp.
Stamps used are Year After Year, Think Happy Thoughts and the new Polka Dot background stamp. Paper is Pretty in Pink, Ballet Blue and Whisper White. Ink used is Black and Pretty in Pink. Accessories are markers, brad, circle punches, Stampin Up' new scalloped circle punch, word window punch and ribbon.
Cut the Pretty in Pink cardstock 4 1/4" x 11". Stamp the Polka Dot background and the small flower from the Happy Thoughts in Pretty in Pink. Be sure and stamp the background before you score the cardstock as it will be easier to use the big background stamp. Score at 2 1/4 " and 6 3/4" and fold on the score lines. Use the word window punch to make the slot for the gift card / money. You will have to punch once, slide the punch over a little and punch again to make it big enough. Glue the lower flap up putting a thin line of glue on the sides and top. Fold the top flap down.
Stamp the flowers from Year After Year on a piece of Whisper White cardstock and punch out with the scalloped punch. Color with Prett in Pink and Old Olive markers. Mat this on a 2" cirlce punched from Ballet Blue.
Cut a 2 1/2" x 2 3/4" piece of Whisper White and stamp the Polkadot background in Pretty in Pink. Mat this on a piece of Ballet Blue cut to 2 3/4" x 3". Tie a piece of ribbon around the bottom. Glue this to the top of the flap making sure that you only put glue on the upper part. Attach your scalloped circle to this piece with pop up tape.
Using a piece of white scrap stamp the Happy Birthday stamp in black. Stamp a small flower in Pretty in Pink. Punch out with a 1 1/4" circle punch and mat on a 1 1/2" circle punched from Ballet Blue. Attach a small brad for the flower center. Using pop up tape on the bottom of the circle only attach to the lower right. This will hold your flap closed.
Using the Think Happy Thoughts stamp set you can make gift card / money holders for any occasion.
