Something Different

Yesterday I gave a friend at work a card just because.  Just to encourage her and let her know that she is supported and doing a great job.  She loved it :). She said it made her day. I'm going to try and send more "just because" types of cards. 

This was a fun idea for a work friend... this won't go in the mail, but I know that it will be fun to give.  And it's more Pop of Pink!

Featured Stamp Set: B.Y.O.P. (Buy Your Own Present)

All items on this project, except for the bakers twine are retiring items.  So sad!

Card Base: Melon Mambo
Layers: Whisper White, Pop of Pink DSP
Ink Colors: Archival Black, Melon Mambo
Other items: Thick Black Baker's Twine, Rhinestones, Pop of Pink Washi Tape, Glassine Bag, Decorative Label Punch

Start with your bag.  Fold it up from the bottom 3 inches.
Next, create your card insert... this will go inside the bag opening, leaving an additional space for a gift card or other small ,fun gift item.

Add washi tape to your Melon Mambo cardstock, then add a piece of Whisper White cardstock.  Stamp your phrase in Archival Black ink.  Slide inside the bag.

Next, DSP.  I used 2 colors:  1 x 4 1/2 and 2 1/2 x 4 1/2.  Overlap them slightly.  Then attach them to the front of your bag.

Now add your baker's twine.  Wraps around twice and tie in a bow in the front.

Stamp your front sentiment in Melon Mambo ink and punch with the Decorative Label Punch.  Attach it to the front with dimensionals.

Finish it off with 3 Rhinestones to add a little bling ;)
