10/14 Twisted Gift Cards are so much FUN!!

 
I've been having so much fun with Twisted Gift Cards lately . . . ever since I saw a video for this technique at our Stampin' Up! Demo Only website called Stampin' Connection. Kelly Gettelfinger put this together and she does a GREAT job explaining how to cut and score your papers to make these cards. Today, I'm going to share all the cards that I've been making with this technique. Thanks, Kelly, for creating the video to help us all to learn how to do this. You can watch Kelly's video by clicking HERE.
 


The card I created above is the one my Sunshine Club members and their guests got to make this month. The Mixed Bunch stamp set stamped in Soft Suede with the Comfort Cafe DSP makes a lovely fall gift card. The second picture above shows the inside of the card and where you would put the gift card.



Above is one of the color variations with Comfort Cafe. This time the flower is stamped in Midnight Muse. I taught this version and one other at my Stamping to Share Monthly Meeting with guests and downline members.



This is a Halloween variation using the Howlstooth and Scaringbone designer series paper. I used the stamp set called Googly Ghouls for this card. It's so much fun to add the googlie eyes to these images . . . it really makes you feel like a kid again! I think the Champagne Shimmer Paper adds a nice sparkling touch to the card.



And, this is the final card I made to show my customers and friends this awesome technique. It's a Christmas gift card holder. The paper is called Candlelight Christmas and the front panel features an image from the Ornament Keepsakes stamp set. The inside panel uses a sentiment from the stamp set called Merry & Type.

Thank you so much for stopping by my blog today!! I appreciate you and hope that you, too, will be inspired by Kelly's video and make some "twisted" cards to share with your friends!
