NEW! Share What You Love Gate Fold Gift Card

I am loving the new Share What You Love Suite from Stampin' Up! The beautiful prints on the Designer Series Paper(DSP) make it so easy to put together cards and 3D projects in a snap! Today I an featuring a gate fold gift card that I whipped up for my mother-in-laws upcoming birthday. This was also my swap card for the Sweet Stampede monthly card swap this month.  I love using different fold techniques on my cards to add interest. I hope you like this one!

Adding some bling to the flowers with a few rhinestones really makes them pop! I also added some water drip shaped epoxy stickers to get that water dripping down the glass look. The Jar of Love stamp set and coordinating Everyday Jar Framelits are really fun to play with. The possibilities are endless. 

I created a perfect place to insert a gift card on the inside of the card. 

We are having beautiful weather here in the Midwest so I'm off to plant some lavender in my garden. I hope you have a great week. I will be back with more sneak peeks of beautiful NEW products that will be available use 1st!

Thanks for stopping by!
