This week we are using another of Karen Burniston "pop up" dies. Another die with may possibilities and I can only create one right now. It can be used in many clever ways to give gift cards for all occasions.
The phrase "for you" was cut from one of the two pieces that I received and used on the front of the card along with a strip of satin ribbon. A small bow was created using the "create a bow" die by Eileen Hull and black and silver paper. These two elements were layered onto a glossy black piece of card stock that was embossed with the "dots" impression folder.
Besides the photo, include a hand written note. Eyelets were added to the center bottom of the card, both front and back. Short lengths of the same ribbon are tied into the eyelets to form a ribbon closure.
This is another very versatile die, just using it once I can see very many possible ways of using it.
