Make a Gift Card Holder – Details

This Little Piggy is not only a great name of this stamp set but a wonderful way to say “thanks”. This image works perfectly with the Ornate Garden Specialty Designer Paper. Who could resist a pig holding a daisy?


The flip up tri-fold panel reveals a wonderful area for the inside greeting as well as a pocket to hold a gift card. The inside greeting uses the Ornate Thanks stamp set – a brand new product that will be in the new annual catalog debuting on June 3. But you can purchase it now during its early release promotion.

Make a Gift Card Holder – Birthday #1

As the years pass, we all need to be reminded we are “Young at Heart”, which is the same name for this adorably witty stamp set.


I used Stampin’ Blends markers to color in the image. It’s great therapy for all of us quarantined creatives!
