Welcome to our blog hop highlighting all the special parts of the special from Close To My Heart for National Stamping Month, Create Kindness. If you arrived here from Brenda Lapp's blog. you're on the right path. You can find the entire list on Melinda Everitt's blog. You can find all the contents of this kit here, where you can also buy each piece individually. I used 8 of the cards to make the smaller 3" x 3" cards that are great to make as a gift enclosure or place on someone's pillow or desk. You can see those I posted on September 1st.
Today I'm sharing a few of the 5.5" x 4.25" cards I made using the card pieces. I wanted to also use up the small envelopes so I included them inside to make these cards for giving cash or gift cards.
The first three use the stamps from the set: I cut off 1/2" from the paper used on front to help decorate the gift card envelope inside. I also used the cricut shapes I included with the set I posted September 1st and papers from the Adventure Fundamentals papers that coordinate with the papers in the kit. On each of them, I placed ribbon or another element over the scored line for folding the 6" x 3" card base I used to decorate the front.
Because I especially need gift card holders for Christmas, I'm showing two of the ones I decorated using different stamps.
