Cards for Wanda - Gift Card

Today's card is a fun little project, if you have some time to dedicate to making a special card.

This was one of the Make and Take cards that we made at Regionals, for Stampin' Up!.  I was fortunate to be able to attend 2 Regional events, and they were similar in presentation, and had the same Make and Takes.  So I now have 2 of this same card.  I don't know if you have trouble with this, but when I have a special card, especially if it took a while to make, I am less than eager to part with it.  But since I have 2, giving one away was easier. 

There are lots of details to this card.  The dots are made by laying the Mat Pack template down and then using it with the Stampin' Write Markers.

Are you wondering what that little piece of  white is sticking out of the side of the card?  Well, it has a is a circle, under the larger white panel.  It is attached to the Basic Gray card base with a mini brad so that it can be moved in a circle.  We had a template to follow, and knew where to punch the hole, so the kites could show through.

 We stamped the kites last, so they could be placed perfectly with the tail of the kite.  Here are the 3 kites that I chose to use from the stamp set, Send Me Soaring, in the current Occasions Mini Catalog.  A little of the new Baker's Twine, in Lucky Limeade accents the kite's tail.
Below, you can see the detail for the envelope.  Isn't that cute?  We punched 2 Pool Party hearts, pierced them with the Paper Piercing Tool, and then attached a white brad to each.  A foot or so of Baker's Twine, in Calypso Coral, holds the envelope closed.  Of course you can't mail this type of envelope, which makes it perfect to use as a gift card to go with Wanda's box of cards.

Stamps:  Send Me Soaring
Cardstock:  Basic Gray (base), Whisper White, Pool Party, Calypso Coral, Lucky Limeade, Beerry Blossoms DSP
Accessories:  Small Heart Punch, 1 3/8" Circle Punch, Circles #2 Originals Die, Big Shot, Scallop Border Punch, Paper Piercing Tool, Mat Pack (template), Stampin' Write Markers (Calypso Coral and Lucky Limeade), Baker's Twine (Lucky Limeade and Calypso Coral), Neutrals Brads, Mini Brads

I hope you've enjoyed Wanda's cards!  This one was for her daughter to write in as the gift card to go along with the box.  I do have one more pack of cards that I sent along in the same package, that were from me to Wanda, so I'll show those tomorrow.  If you are the praying kind, and these cards come to mind, I hope they remind you of Wanda, and that you say a prayer of healing and comfort for her.
