Gift Idea: Card Set to Go!

Nov 19, 2011

I really love this week’s challenge to make a card set for gift-giving. There are so many possibilities with this one that it was hard to narrow down what I wanted to do. Then I saw this Card Pouch tutorial over at Splitcoast Stampers and I completely had to stop what I was working on and do it instead!

Do you ever do that? Stop in the middle of a project and change course? Well I’m sure glad I did. 

This little pouch is super easy to make and it came together quickly. I’m going to be making more of these to keep on hand for emergency gifts and also I think my daughter’s teacher will really enjoy something like this too.



For the little cards I used the sentiments from the J-1095 Fabulous Phrases set. They fit perfectly in one of my hole punches I had in my stash.

Here’s a look at the inside of the card pouch. The card fits nicely inside.


One other thing I got to play with was the T000-0001 Goosebumps texture spray. This product is so much fun! Just spray it on and let it dry. Easy peasy!

I wanted the outside of my pouch and the cards to look like they were covered in melting snow. This technique is great to do if you don’t want to have the look of embossing but want something fun for a texture.


It does look like melting snow doesn’t it??


You can really see the texture and the lovely sentiments in these photos. The ‘Get Well’ card is using less spray and the ‘Thanks’ card behind it is using an all over application of the spray.


Well I hope you’ve enjoyed my project this week and are inspired to create your own. There’s just a little over a month left before Christmas and it will be here before you know it!

Supplies Used:

Stamps: J-1095 Fabulous Phrases
Paper: Cosmo Cricket More Holly, Bazzill Cardstock
Ink: Ranger Vintage Photo Distress Ink, Eco Green Paris Trunk 
Dies: Spellbinders™ Grand Calibur, S5-031 Fancy Tags Three #3
Accessories: Scrap Happy Glue, Dimensional Squares, Want2Scrap mini rhinestones

Happy crafting!
