Painted Petals Top Note Gift Card Holder

Happy Friday everyone!  Here is one of the cards we made at my Card Clubs this month.


It's a gift card holder using the retiring Top Note Die.  I have made so many different projects with the die.  So I highly recommend if you don't have it, grab one before it's GONE. 

You will need a piece of 5 1/2" x 11" and score at 3 1/2", 5 1/2" and 7 1/2" on the 11" side.  Fold your paper at each score line as shown above (mountain fold at 5 1/2" and valley fold at 3 1/2" and 7 1/2").
Place your folded side right below the stitched line on your Top Note Die so that it will NOT die cut the side.  Using the Word Window Punch to punch the opening for the gift card.  To do this you need to keep your paper folded in half and insert your punch only half way in and then punch.  Do this 3 times to punch the entire opening section. 



Thank you for stopping by today.  Have a great weekend!!!

I'm so excited to see this beautiful Painted Blooms Designer Series Paper is one of the new Weekly Deals this week.  These are thank you cards I made for my reward program customers for the month of April.  Can you believe I made these six cards with only one sheet of the Painted Blooms DSP

Here is how I cut my 12" x 12" sheet into  4" x 5 1/4" pieces.  You can see where I trimmed of some of the upper and lower pieces to include the beautiful images in the best way I could (even though I really didn't want to cut this pretty paper!).

Back from Hawaii & NEW Weekly Deals


Hello Stampers!  We are now back from Hawaii.  I'm excited to share a photo of my family, parents, sister and nieces (missing my brother-in-law who couldn't make it).  It was a super special vacation for us.  We live in three different countries (my parents in Japan, my sister and nieces in Canada) so it's hard for all of us to get together.  So Hawaii was a perfect location for us to meet up and celebrate my parents' 50th wedding anniversary (plus this year's mother's day was a bonus!).  We started out in Maui for 4 days and then all of us flew to Oahu to join the Stampin' Up! Grand Vacation.  We really had a fabulous time there.  The kids kindly reminded us that it had been 7 years since they met last time:)  Before we left Hawaii, they were making plans to meet up again in Maui which was their favorite place......hopefully it won't be another 7 years...:)  I'd like to thank my friends, customers and downline members for sending us on this amazing trip.  I couldn't have made it without your support.  Arigato!!!
