I used the Kinda Eclectic stamp set and the new Gift Card Envelope & Trims Thinlits Dies from Stampin’ Up! to create a little thank you gift. My card design was inspired by the Try Stampin’ on Tuesday #184 sketch. Our theme this week is “back to school.” I know this isn’t very school related but I thought a thank you card and gift card set would be perfect since I’m always in need of those for teachers/school bus drivers/teacher assistants!!
Here is the Try Stampin’ on Tuesday sketch this week, be sure to stop by the Try Stampin’ on Tuesday blog to see what the other design team members have created with this sketch too!
I started by cutting a panel of Cajun Craze card stock with the Finishing Touches Edgelits die. I adhered a panel of Color Me Autumn DSP to the Cajun Craze card stock with SNAIL, then wrapped a piece of Color Me Autumn Designer Washi Tape around the layered panel.
I adhered the layered panel to a larger panel of Color Me Autumn DSP, then to a panel of Cajun Craze card stock and finally to a Mossy Meadow card base with SNAIL.
I inked up the sun, leaf and butterfly images from the Kinda Eclectic stamp set in Mossy Meadow, Cajun Craze and Crushed Curry inks, stamped them off on scrap paper once and stamped them on a Very Vanilla panel.
I stamped the sentiment from the Kinda Eclectic stamp set “full strength” in Soft Suede ink in the center of the panel then adhered the stamped panel to a panel of Color Me Autumn DSP with SNAIL. I wrapped a strand of Linen Thread around the panel twice and tied a little knot and adhered the stamped panel to the card front with Stampin’ Dimensionals.
I inked and stamped off the butterfly image from the Kinda Eclectic stamp set before stamping it on a Very Vanilla panel. I repeated that two additional times, then punched the butterflies out with the Bitty Butterfly Punch and adhered them to the card front with Stampin’ Dimensionals. I added two Pearl Basic Jewels to each butterfly to finish the card front.
I inked up and stamped off the leaf and butterfly images from the Kinda Eclectic stamp set again, then stamped them on a Very Vanilla panel inside the card.
I used the Gift Card Envelope & Trims Thinlits Dies to create the gift card holder. This die cuts and scores this cute little pocket. All that you need to do is adhere one of the flaps and use Stampin’ Dimensionals to adhere the dots and a bit of Linen Thread or Baker’s Twine.
Then just tuck the gift card inside and tie it shut. Quick and simple! I stamped a sentiment from the Another Thank You photopolymer stamp set on a Very Vanilla panel and cut it out with one of the tag dies from the Gift Card Envelope & Trims Thinlits Dies.
I punched the end of the tag with the 1/8″ Circle Punch, tied a little Linen Thread through the punch and adhered it to the Gift Card Envelope with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

The colors are beautiful, and the layout is divine, you really added just the right pizzazz with the stamped images:) your awesome layers are just right on this card (as ALL your layering is). Can you tell I’m case-ing ASAP! 😉
I haven’t gotten the gift card envelope die, yet, lol! But it is fast moving over to the “want list” to “gotta have list”. You know, the really really short list to the huge “gotta” list, heehee!
Thanks so much Jill! The little gift card envelope die is really cute and really easy…and my must have list has pretty much turned into the entire catalog! 🙂
