I made this gift card holder that can be used for any of the many occasions happening this month- graduation, Mother's day, one of the million birthdays, teacher appreciation, you name it. Here is the photo and then I will tell you about it-
HERE so you don't get caught unawares! The last day of May is the last day of the current catalog! It is retiring a month early this year to make way for a new catalog cycle, and I'm so excited about the new catalog! Do you want to get it for free? Just order from me before the end of the month and I will send you the new catalog! It's that easy. Just go HERE to place an order!
About this project: I used the Beyond the Garden DSP and let the colors dictate the palette. Pacific Point is the main color and I may have cheated by using Pear Pizazz instead of Wild Wasabi for the green. To watercolor the flower from Growing Green I first stamped it with Pacific Point ink and then bled the ink into the body of the flower with aqua painter (103954). It has such a nice soft effect don't you think?
If you look closely you can see a "stitch line" across the bottom of the DSP. I used my Mat Pack (105826) and Paper Piercing tool (116631) to punch the holes and then drew a line through them with the Uni-ball signo Gel Pen (white 105021) to look like stitches. I will make a tutorial tomorrow so check back! I also used the gel pen to make the white dots on the scallops. This is not just an ordinary Gel Pen. I have had it for a few years now, it hasn't dried up and it leaves a nice color on the dark card stock- I highly recommend this pen!
