Your Next Stamp Sneak Peek!

Hi all!  Welcome to Sneak Peek Day for Your Next Stamp's March release!  Today I get to feature the Congrads set.  This set has the perfect sentiments - love it!  What I don't love?  That my oldest is graduating this May!!!  What the...????  WHEN did that happen?!!!??  Ugh.  I could cry.  Moving along...  I created a gift card holder because what do you want/need when you graduate??  MONEY!  I found an easy tutorial online.  

***Edited to add the link to the video tutorial I used -   Hope this works!  I've never linked to a YouTube video before.  It's titled Stampin' UP! - Gift Card holder Tutorial.

The navy card stock is the same size as an A2 card.  I stamped one of the sentiments, "Dream Big", onto white card stock and adhered it to the main part of the gift card holder.  The belly band has another sentiment from the set stamped on it, then I added some silver and white twine.

Here's what you see when you take the belly band off.  I stamped the cap several times (on both sides of the inside of the holder) in versa mark ink then embossed them with silver metallic EP.  

 Now it's time for you to hop on over to the YNS BLOG to see the rest of the sneak peeks!!!

Thanks for stopping by!
