Welcome to our May Stampin Friends Blog Hop. This month hop showcases projects that feature Father’s Day. Be sure to check out all our wonderful crafters and their amazing projects. Did you come from Cheryl Taylor’s blog? Her projects were awesome! Be sure to continue to Barbara Welch's blog, you can click on her link at the end of my blog.
I had fun preparing my projects for this month. I used all Stampin Up products. Primarily the Geared Up Garage Stamp Set, Geared Up Thinlits and DSP. The cardstock used is Basic Gray and Whisper White
The first project I made in my set is a card in a box. I have always wanted to make one, and I finally sat down to give it a whirl! I did search Pinterest and found this video by The Serene Stamper. I found her tutorial very easy to follow! I am so pleased with how it came out and I know it will make an adorable display for the kids to give their dad.
I then made this super easy gift card holder! It's the perfect compliment to the card in a box. Sometimes it's perfectly fine to give a gift card as a gift, when the person has all they need!
So for this project, you need a piece of cardstock cut to 3 1/2" x 8 1/2". This is a great size too and you can make 3 gift card holders from 1 piece of Cardstock. On the 3 1/2" side, score at 2 1/2" on one end and 2" on other end. Round the corners if you want to give a more finished look.
You will need 3 pieces of DSP, I just measure 1/4" less the front, bottom and back. I chose the shorter flap to be the top closer. Add tear n tape to the edges of the bottom flap to create a pocket.
And for the last but not least is a card suitable for any dad!!! I used Real Red as the card base, and layered with Whisper White and DSP. I stamped the images in Black Momento Ink. I cut the out with the Thinlits. I decided to not color the images. I feel they popped more against the DSP.
I hope you enjoyed the projects! Be sure to continue along the hop. Leave a comment and tell me what you think! 1 lucky person will receive the material to make all 3 projects!
Thanks so much
