Monster Party Invites

So every year around this time I get a phone call from my sister, Kolby's birthday isn't that far away, and I don't have any invitations...
So the theme was "Monsters" and this is what I came up with:

(I erased the address and phone # for obvious reasons)
This year she only needed 30 my 7 year old helped me glue on the 90 googly eyes.

I hope he likes them!!

Pop-Up Gift Card Holder

Here is a gift card holder I made for my niece who is graduation from 8th grade. The instructions for the base of the card came from Dawn's Stamping Studio. The snail is from Create a Critter and is 5". The stamp is from My Pink Stamper.

When you open the card up the gift card pops up at you!

Teacher Gift Card Holder

I'm trying to wrap up Teacher Appreciation week. Here is my Crayon Box that I made to fit a gift card. I cut the box from TBBM at 5 inches. The apple was from doodle charms, I just used a scalloped circle to make the bite mark. Overall very simple and fun! Especially while watching the Thunder's win over the Grizzlies!! The stamp is from My Pink Stamper.

Here is a picture of the card open so you can see the gift card inside. Next time I will stamp before putting the box together!

Thanks for looking!

3-D Apple/Gift Card Holder

So this was a fail, but I'm definitely going to try it again! I saw this on one of the Cricut Circle contest entries and loved it! She used patterned paper and then tucked a gift card inside. I used the apple from the Give a Hoot cartridge and cut it at 3 1/2 inches (not big enough). I tried many different types of adhesive, but the hot glue gun was definitely the best. I used my Cuttlebug to emboss the apple with Swiss Dots.

Mother's Day Card

I saw this card and knew it would be perfect for my mom for Mother's Day. I got the instructions from the Scor-Pal website and it was sooo easy!

The flowers are from the Mother's Day Bouquet cartridge and were cut at 2 1/2 inches. The stamp is from My Pink Stamper!

Just Because Card

I wanted to make a card that could hold a gift card and here is what I came up with:

Another super simple card! I just started by cutting my cardstock into a 11 1/2 inches x 5 1/2 inch piece. Scored the longer side at 4 1/2 and 5 1/2 inches. and then flipped the paper horizontally and scored it at 4 1/2 inches which when folded made the pocket for my gift card. I then cut a slit down the side of the pocket using my gift card as a size guide and then embellished the front and inside.
