Cherry Tart

This is a gift card holder that I had my customers make at a recent workshop. It is made by cutting your cardstock at 4 1/4" x 11 and scoring it at 3", 5 1/2" and 8". Then you fold and crease the scored lines with a bone folder. Sticky strip was applied to the center sections but not the center fold, so that the two middle sections would adhere together. The fold in the middle was punched twice with the word window punch to create an opening for a gift card leaving on edge on either side of the fold. The Picnic DSP was cut at 2 3/4" x 4" and glued to the front with Mono-Adhesive. I also used the Scallop Punch and the 1 3/8" Circle Punch to punch out the cherries after I colored them in with markers. The Belly Band is 1" x 7 1/2" and used to wrap around the gift card holder.

Tart & Tangy

Hi Stampers,

I've had a busy month or so. I've been doing a few swaps with other demos and planning a few workshops. Here are some swaps I recently made with some of my demo friends in Indianapolis. They are gift card holders using the Tart & Tangy set on page 14 from the Occassion Mini and using the Picnic Designer Series Paper from page 16.
