Gift Card Holder

Isn't this the cutest stamp set?!? I think it is my new favorite set. There are four different bugs, including a dragonfly, firefly, ladybug, and this butterfly. There are also a few other word stamps in the set. It's called 'A Little Buzz' and it will be available in the Summer catalog, which goes live on May 1st, 2010.

I can't take credit for this project idea, but I do think it is awesome, and I will be using it quite a bit! My neighbor, Karen, was making these gift card holders for her son's teachers and I thought it was such a great idea I had to steal it. I used the Caboodle paper set, sorbet stitched ribbon, and copper brads. The image was stamped and colored with Copic markers. Then, I covered the entire image with adhesive and placed a used dryer sheet over the adhesive. Finally, I covered the dryer sheet with glitter and rubbed it onto the image. The glitter goes through the holes in the dryer sheet and sticks to the adhesive. The entire image has a softened, glittery look and the photos do not do it justice. Enjoy!

This is so cute, Jolene! I also LOVE the stamp set. I have used it several times already. It is so perfect for little people. I will have to try that technique as well.
