Valentine Gifts

A fabulous friend of mine needed a card to hold a starbucks gift card for her son's teacher. I decided on the double pocket card (click here to see Beate's amazing tutorial).
Recipe:
Stamps: Happy Occasions
Paper: soft sky textured, blue bayou textured, spring break dp, whisper white
Ink: blue bayou
Accessories: old olive polytwill, styled silver hodgepodge, 1 1/4" circle punch, ticket corner punch, corner rounder, silver eyelet




I also made a set of blank cards using my new Summer Picnic dp from SU. I couldn't decide on a stamp so I ended up going without. The 3x3 card box is from a tutorial by Andrea Walford.

Recipe:
Paper: wild wasabi texured, summer picnic dp, whisper white
Accessories: pumpkin striped ribbon, red 5/8" ribbon, corner rounder
