Painted Petals Card for SB101

Hi everyone, for this week’s Stamping and Blogging Sketch Challenge I decided to use the Painted Petals stamp set and Mini Treat Bag thinlits dies.  Here is my card for SB101.

When I first saw the Mini Treat Bag thinlits dies, I thought it would be ideal for making a little gift voucher holder.  I am keeping everything crossed that these dies make it into the new catalogue, they are just so versatile.  Anyway let’s get back to talking about the card, I wanted the words on the insert to stand out and the flowers to be nice and subtle so all I did was stamp off the flower image before stamping to create a lighter shade.  Here is a photo of the little insert that you put your gift card in.

Since I did not have a gift card to slip into the insert I have used one of my other cards to give you an idea on the size of the insert.  Maybe I should try and convince hubby to buy me a gift card for demonstration purposes lol, after all a girl HAS to shop, right.  Anyway here’s what it would look like with a gift card.

I love the little “for you” word die so naturally could not resist using it, do you like how I have raised the word?

I am loving the little handheld stapler and thick bakers twine, and they worked in perfectly for the type of look I was after.

    Fabulous! So many cool things to look at. Love the gift card holder (totally agree about hubby buying you a gift card), how you stamped over the die cut, the way you have used the twine. Awesome take on this weeks sketch.
