Better Late Than Never.....

As seems to be my life right now, I had every intention of posting these projects last month.  Well, that obviously didn't happen.  I'm learning to juggle new responsiblities I've taken on with the Bible study I'm a part of and the rest of life which includes my Stampin' Up! business.  Needless to say, stamping hasn't happened as much.  However, I'm working on rectifying that because I truly love stamping.  It relaxes me!

So, here is a project we made at my classes and clubs this last month.  The idea came from a swap I'd received at an OnStage event, but it was sized smaller than a 4-1/4" by 5-1/2" card.  I really wanted a gift card holder that would be sized for a regular card and envelope.

Making the card a regular card size required me to use 12" by 12" card stock.  
Here are the measurements:
Card Stock:  4-1/4" x 12", scored along the 12" length at 4", 9-1/2" and 11-1/2".  
Designer Series Paper:  1 each of 4" x 1-3/4"; 4" x 3-3/4"; 4" x 3-1/4"(inside).
You'll cut a small coffee cup from the designer series paper for the flap to stay closed, and it's mounted onto the front using a Stampin' Dimensional.
I used Tear & Tape to seal the edges, but any strong adhesive would work.

My customers loved this project, and I hope you'll have fun making your own too.

Happy stamping!
