Gift Card Inspired

Hi Stampers!

Sorry for the lack of posts lately...I have been prepping for clubs and the gift bag and tag stamp camp tomorrow night all week. I was in my local Giant Eagle and was browsing the gift cards....and one from Bath and Body Works popped out at me! I didn't buy was a $25 card, and I didn't need it...but I put the image in my little image bank in my! It was a plain white gift card with a grayish colored twig tree with a red bird on the branch. Do you know where I am going with this??? hehehe!!! That was it on the card other than the Bath and Body Works logo in red. So...we have a plain white card...grayish colored tree, red bird and red writing......soooooo.....

What do you think? This card was so simple, and I like it! I sure hope Season of Friendship makes it into the regular catalog....Stampin' Up! - are you reading this??!??!??!?! I did change up the inspiration though...I made a red card base.

The card base is real red. I stamped the snowflake from season of friendship in whisper white craft ink and heat set it with my heat tool. The main image is whisper white. I stamped the tree in sahara sand and the little bird in real red. I matted that onto sahara sand. I decided to do a "banner" type sentiment instead of stamping it onto the main image. I stamped it and cut a v into the one side. I adhered it to the main image panel with vintage brads on one end. For the wave in the middle, I stacked three stampin dimensionals on top of each other and then adhered the other end with a small piece of sticky strip. I mounted the entire main panel on stampin' dimensionals. Here is a better angle of the banner and the inside of the card.

What do you think? Sweet and simple, huh?

Well...back to work....I need to get a few things done today before taking the little one to lunch at Burger King to play in the play land with two of her cousins.
