Welcome to our Blog Hop. You've more than likely made your way here from Phyllis Sheppard's Blog. If you're starting here – perfect! 

Creative Inking is a group of Stampin' Up! demonstrators sharing themed projects. This month's theme is Mother's Day. 

  April 2015 1

My Mom lives in Las Vegas and because we're far apart and she loves to shop online, a gift card is the most practical thing to send her for Mother's Day.  I wanted a full size card that accommodated the gift card.  I created this card by complete accident but am very happy with how it turned out.

You might not be able to tell in the picture but I used the Vanilla Shimmer Smooch Spray on the front of this card. The shimmer is subtle and elegant.  I used the Flower Frenzy Die and the Floral Framelits to create the flower pieces.

A gift card tucks perfectly inside the pocket.
