This is a birthday card made with shaving cream and reinkers. I dropped a couple drops of Tempting Turquoise and Lovely Lilac reinkers in shaving cream onto a plastic plate. I used a wooden skewer to swirls the colors and pressed Whisper White cardstock into the shaving cream. I lifted it up and scraped off the shaving cream and a paper towel to wipe off the excess. I let it dry before making my card.
This is a gift card holder that I had my customers make recently at a workshop. I love this set. It was made with Yoyo Yellow cardstock cut at 4 1/4" x 11" and scored at 3", 5 1/2", and 8". I folded the scored lines with a Bone Folder to make nice creases. It will look like a "W". I applied Sticky Strip to the edges of one of the middle sections to hold the two middle sections together, but not on the center fold. On the center fold, I used the Word Window Punch to make the opening for a gift card by punching through the fold at both ends, but not pushing the punch all the way in (just half way). Then I used the 3/4" circle punch in the center.
