My husband asked me (at the last minute!) to make up a couple gifts for his assistants for Admin Assistant's Day last week. He knows they love to receive my hand-stamped items. I love to make up these Clear Mount Stamp Case card sets. And, since one of his assistant's is a REAL girly-girl, I knew Flirtatious Designer Paper would fit her perfectly! (It's on the Retired Accessories List…better grab a package!) I used Jayne's Type for these sets…I am REALLY sad that set is retiring! I love the look of it for monograms and have used it a LOT on my personalized stuff. I'll be keeping mine for SURE!
Here is the outside of the Clear Mount Stamp Case and the white gift bag. I used Melon Mambo cardstock for the tags and White Taffeta Ribbon. I also used either Pumpkin Pie or Basic Black cardstock for the accents, depending on the Flirtatious DSP print. I punched the Eyelet Border Punch along the White White layered edge of the reverse DSP print on the front of the cases. That punch is another item that I'm sad is going away at the end of May (or while supplies last!) Better place your order NOW for it! On the card case, I used one of the Melon Mambo Doilies…I just cut it apart from the sheet and placed the Monogram on top of it. There is Whisper White Taffeta Ribbon along the spine of the case, and I attached a Trinket Key (on the retired list!) with some White Baker's Twine!
Oh, after I had taken the picture, I did go back and add a Boho Blossom white punched flower next to the monogram on the bag tag…with a little Melon Mambo Mini Brad in the center for some extra bling! It just dressed up the tag a little more. My husband grabbed them before I could re-take the photos!
And here is one opened up with six cards and decorated envelopes.
For the cards, I used Melon Mambo cardstock for the card bases. I ran Whisper White layer thru the Big Shot with the Perfect Polka Dots Impressions Folders. Added the Designer Paper with a strip of Melon Mambo layer at the top, wrapped around some White Taffeta Ribbon and adhered on the front. I added the 1 1/4" Circle Monogram on the Scallop Circle Punch, and a little Rhinestone for some bling. I also decorated the envelopes with a little leftover strip of Designer Paper.
Doesn't that make a nice gift! Love how easy they are to make!
