Jennifer M over at Stamps and Smiles always hosts the lovliest and fun challenges. This week over at Project Tuesday the challenge was to make a gift card/envelope. They even supply a link to the template, so not only is it fun, but its easy too.
I decided to do mine as a Thank You card with with a whimsical , fun flavor. The stamps are from Stamps and Smiles. The lollipops are from the set called "Cuppyland" and the inside sentiment is from "Happy Birthday Cuppy". These sets are just adorable, arent they?
This is the outside, front of the card. After stamping each of the 3 lollipops, I colored them with my Copics, then used Stampin Up Crystal Effects to give them the look of freshly unwrapped, shiny goodness. A SU punch was also used for the belly band. Here is a closeup of how well the Crystal Effects works to give a realistic shine wherever needed. I have applied it a bit thick as to give each pop a raised, domed look.
The sticks were glittered with an ultra fine glitter, and tiny bows were added to each to finish them off.
This photo shows the inside of this versatile little card. There is room for a gift card on the bottom, as the cardstock folds up to make a pocket. Best to use a double sided cardstock for this project.
The middle panel is for your sentiment and hand written note. I double layered this panel, and added some glittery goodness to the edges in a "fairy pink" glitter from Hobby Lobby.

Who would'nt love to receive this in the mail. I know that I would.
Many thanks for stopping by.
