Star Quality

I'm loving the combination of the Gold Glimmer Paper (new in the annual catalogue) and star framelits lately.  They make it so easy to add something special!
Here is a simple card made for a sweet boy's first birthday - I used the "1" framelit from the File Tabs framelits and mounted some Real Red card stock behind it.  Once again I've used the Happy Birthday sentiment from Age Awareness - I'm finding it is really easy to use in lots of different projects, especially as it is photopolymer.  
I made this for a first birthday party on the weekend, but forgot to give it to the birthday boy!  I'll have to pop it in  the mail instead.  Oops!

This card is intended as an end of year thank you for one of my children's coaches.  I used two different stamp sets for the sentiments - Pictogram Punches (it has little co-ordinating punches) and Something to Say.  I cut out the star frame using two layered star framelits and I used the Lucky Stars Textured Impressions Embossing Folder as well.   Enough stars, you think?

Too many stars?  Is that even possible?

I have a few more thank you's to start making for end of term - the usual round of teachers, coaches, etc.  I'm hoping if I start now, I won't be caught on the hop in 8 or so weeks, when breakups start!

As usual, I've listed out what I used to make these projects and you can find them in my online store by clicking on the pictures below.

Product of the week - Gift Card Envelope

Gift Cards - they are the kind of present I sometimes feel a little guilty about.  Sure, they are practical, and give the recipient the ability to chose their own gift, but they can be a bit impersonal.  Though sometimes, if you don't know the person you are buying for very well, impersonal can be just right!  
That's where a little bit of card stock, and your Big Shot can come in handy.  Now you can personalise the gift card as much as you like!  
Here's one I made recently for a party my son was invited to attend.  He knew his mate would appreciate a gift card, so I managed to whip up this gift card envelope and a matching birthday card in minutes.  And I could look the birthday child's mother in the eye and say "I made it!"
Gift card envelope and matching card - nothing fancy, but 12 year old boys don't usually care for fancy!

Here's the basic envelope as it comes, once you've die cut it with the new Gift Card Envelope Framelit and your Big Shot - I put the gift card in already!  I adhered the bottom flap to the sides.

I decorated the front simply, using some white card stock and a leftover bit of a retired DSP from my stash, adding a bit of green seam binding ribbon to hold the envelope closed.  I stamped "Happy Birthday" in Island Indigo (to match the DSP) and attached the strip to the front with Dimensionals. 

Here's a look at the back:

This framelit is going to get SUCH a workout from me - not just for the constant round of birthdays my four children constantly seem to be invited to, but, HELLO - Christmas!    I can see little love notes, or even an Advent Calendar being made with these.  I'm sure I'll be posting quite a few projects with this clever, versatile product!

Don't you think you could use this too?
