This is a pre-packaged SU gift card holder in so saffron. And guess what? they are so easy to decorate and embellish with your scraps. I had a few pieces of the K& Co paper in my scrap bin, some of it was doublesided. I added the cupcake and the "Wish Big" from Short and Sweet stamp set and I have gift card holder. The jumbo brad is non-SU. The cupcake icing is colored in with the white gel pen. The ink colors are blue bayou and rose red to match the paper. The focal point is made with the scallop punch, the 1 3/8 and the 1 1/4 inch circle punches, and the Think Happy Thoughts stamp set. Ribbon was also from the overflowing ziplock full of ribbon scraps. Do any of you have one of them?

Here is another criss cross card that I made with the SU simply said stamp set and the cutie pie paper. These cards are really fun and easy to put together with the double sided designer series paper! The sentiment is punched with the scallop punch, then layered with circles. the "for you" is from fundamental phrases. At the tip I used the the tab punch and a jumbo silver brad (non-SU) and a few self adhesive die cuts from my build a flower tin. The flowers are stamped in black and colored with matching markers. The thank you sentiment is stamped in Purely pomegranate. I used purely pomegranate, bashful blue and whisper white card stock. The double stitched ribbon is also purely pomegranate to match. Enjoy!

This is a tag for a Christmas swap I did with my girlfriends. The Penguin carrying the presents on the tree is case from Convention. The faux Silver brads is the SU zig painty pen. The paper and the ribbon is non-SU. The image s colored with various markers to match. I hand doodled the snow. That's the new photo corner punch from SU. I used a small white eyelet for the hole for the ribbon because its giving me a good reason to play with my crop-a-dile!

The scallop punch and the 1 3/8 and 1 1/4 circle punches and the I tied a little Purely Pomegranate stitched ribbon. The "Just" and the "For" are from Everyday Flexible Phrases.

So there are few accessories I have to call attention to: The new SU jumbo eyelets and the new SU wide grosgrain ribbon. Both are on the pull out tab and on the wrap around band. These really make the card. Chocolate chip and Creamy caramel cardstock. Ink is Chocolate chip, creamy caramel and sage shadow. Chocolate chip wide ribbon. The stamp set is SU Wanted and the Outlaw designer paper.
Side Notes: I did not have 12x12 caramel cardstock for the band, per the tutorial. I improvised and pieced together 2 strips of 8.5x11 the seams are hidden under the scallop and on the edge of the card. I also made the strip 1.25 inches versus 1.5 inches in the instructions.
