Gift Box – Gift Card Holder

The weather here took a turn and it’s suddenly feeling a lot like Christmas! I don’t mind the Christmas part, it’s the cold that I’m not so ready for! However, I could be ready, let me just get the tree up, and get some gift cards ready!

Thanks to A Jillian Vance Design, for their early Christmas gifts and the opportunity to be a Guest Blogger! I came up with this cute little gift card holder, shaped like a gift, but it’s a card!

I based this loosely on this Graduation Card, it’s a bit differently constructed, and definitely easier!

Just flip up the top, and it opens to reveal the gift card tucked inside.


Here it is all the way open~


The stamped messages are from A Jillian Vance Design’s Merry Moolah set, which is perfect for gift cards and gift tags, and includes 6 fun sentiments!

Whiff of Joy Blog Hop

Hello! Today I have the privilege of blog hopping with Whiff of Joy!

These stamps, designed by my friend Stephanie Schütze, are beautiful! They are artfully themed, and come in deeply etched red rubber, with cling backing. This is the set I received:

Paper Art Stamp Set

And this is the card I made:

Beth Pingry Whiff of Joy card

I stamped the stacks twice for each image, then colored the book covers with colors that reminded me of old leather-bound books. I used Thin 3D Foam Squares, and 3D Foam Squares (regular thickness) on every other stack, to give them dimension.

For the open book, I stamped twice, then fussy cut the top page, folded and curled the page, and adhered to the book with MyStik® Permanent Strips (because I can dispense them 1 at a time) and then added a 3D Foam Square under the page to give it dimension. Here’s a side view:

Pink Door Card for A Jillian Vance Design Guest Designer!

Welcome, and grab a cookie! I’m very excited to be guest designing for A Jillian Vance Design this month! Today I’m working with their Wreath of Hope stamp and die set, along with the Hope Pink Ink stamp. I had been asked to make something pink to go along with breast cancer awareness.

Here’s what I made:

Beth Pingry Pink Door Card

The wreath image made me think of a door, and if you remember, I made some door cards a while ago. This is another take on that theme.

I simple cut the panels, stacked them and used Thin 3D Foam Squares from Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L® to add them to the card front. I inked them lightly for a little more visual depth. The keyhole has been in my stash for some time, by Melissa Frances (who is a breast cancer survivor!). The door knob is a brad.

I stamped the Wreath of Hope stamp onto white cardstock, then colored it in with Copic Markers. A simple bow finished the front of the card.

BethPingry-PinkDoor-2For the inside, I stamped the Hope Pink Ink stamp, then colored in the heart and some of the words. I layered that panel on kraft cardstock, and used Pink Photo Corners to add some more flair.

Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L® donates a portion of the sales of their pink products to the National Breast Cancer Foundation.

Thank you, A Jillian Vance Design, for this wonderful opportunity to work with your products! You normally find me at Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L®, where I am Media Director and Design Team Coordinator.
