Week 3 with Selma Stevenson

Today Selma has created two special gift card holders using "Arranged with Love". She stamped the frame onto Polyshrink and attached it to card (also shrunk down the little flower from "A Year of Flowers" to put over the card in the middle of the bouquet) so the image measures 1 1/2 x 2". Isn't that sweet? (I would love to use some Polyshrink with this stamp sometime and make a key chain, bookmark charm, sun catcher or other.) So pretty!
On the second one, the image is actual size, here she ran the bow underneath the frame and tied around the card to hold it closed...
and here you can see how the word window punched middle holds your gift card. A bouquet and a gift card, what else do you need for the perfect gift?!


Here are Selma's directions for making the holder:
"I stamped the image and watercolored it then cut around the frame. The Summer Sun card stock is 5 1/2" x 11". It is scored at 4 1/4" and 5 1/2" then scored 4 1/4" from the opposite end. When the middle section is folded inside, it creates a pocket for the gift card. I used Score Tape to secure the inside folded part. I use my SU Word Window Punch to cut the opening for the gift card in the center of the inside fold. Flowers from "A Year of Flowers" were added to the inside and a verse added. I used Score Tape to secure the long ribbon across the middle. "

Please go visit Selma's blog now for more inspiring projects with this set!

Have a glorious day, thanks for visiting!

I love how Selma's used your stamp in the first card - what a great idea and the colours she used really set it off beautifully!

Thanks for sharing Selma's "stuff". Poly-shrink is a good idea.
