For All You Do Quickie Gift
This is a very quick and easy card with a pocket inside to hold a gift card, a bag of tea, or even a little sachet. You can use it for so many occasions!
I came up with the design when I needed some little thank you gifts for the stamp club the last time it was my turn to be the hostess. You can get 2 of these out of one 12" x 12" sheet. (If you click on the template, you should be able to print it out. Your printer will need to be set to "Landscape".)
I stamped the image in SU Old Olive Craft ink and heat embossed it with SU Iridescent Ice EP. Then I inked the edges with Old Olive Classic ink. I also inked the edges of the DP with Dusty Durango after I'd put the ribbon on. D'oh! The sentiment was stamped with SU Soft Suede Classic ink. I kind of wanted to keep the muted feel of it, so I nixed my original idea of using Chocolate Chip.
Helpful hint: Use Sticky Strip adhesive (aka Terrifically Tacky Tape) on the pocket flaps. Regular Snail adhesive isn't quite strong enough.
(Lord, please give me patience....the neighbors are having a pool party with loud, thumping music.)
