I have recently purchased an exclusive Stampin' Up! 'Top Note Die and i'm addicted to using it!! 'Today i want to share with you a giftcard holder that i made, here it is:
To make this project you need to run some 'Poppy Parade' cardstock through the 'Big Shot' using the 'Top Note Die'. You need three 'Top Notes' in total. The owl has been created using the lovely 'Owl Punch' and scraps of 'Early Espresso', 'Bashful Blue' and 'Whisper White'. I constructed the owl and mounted him onto 'Whisper White' card, mounted on to 'Early Espresso'. (The hearts also come from the 'Owl Punch'.) I layered two 'Top Notes' together and then punched a hole in the top lefthand corner using my 'Crop-A-Dile' and then used a piece of 'Early Espresso' 'Satin Ribbon' to tie them together. Once you have done that you're ready to create the inside...
You now need to chop the third 'Top Note' in half and run some 'Red Sticky Strip' along three sides and then attach to the back 'Top note', this will create a place for you to slot in a gift card, gift voucher or money.
I'm often quite reluctant to give someone a gift voucher as i feel it lacks a personal touch, but now problem solved!!
