Taylored Expressions Sneak Peek Day 3-Enjoy

It's time for more sneak peeks from Taylored Expressions! The new stamps will be available in the TE Store starting tomorrow, Thursday, November 4th at 11am EST.

I know you're going to enjoy today's sneaks...cause the Baker's Dozen is sharing gift card packaging ideas with the set Enjoy, another addition to the Whimsical Wishes line, illustrated by Nancy McKinney. This new set is full of images that cover just about every gift card type and there's also a coordinating Gift Card Frame die. I didn't just use the die to frame a gift card though, I used it to cut out the patterned papers to fit the top and insides of my small hinged tin...it's THE perfect size to house gift cards!!!

I started by stamping the boutique image with Memento Tuxedo Black onto Choice Snow White and coloured it with copic markers. I punched it out with my 1 3/4" circle punch then layered it onto a circle of suede brown dark.

I used my Gift Card Frame die on the pink patterned paper (part of the KI Memories Paisley Parade collection) for the lid and also on the green patterned paper for the inside of the tin...doesn't it coordinate perfectly with the DSW gift card?!? It's almost like I planned that...wink! I added some pleated apple green polka dot ribbon and stitched around the edge of the lid for a little more interest before adding the three Crystal Twinkles. I just love love LOVE how this turned out and it came together so quickly too!!


I can't wait to see all the other fab ideas the Baker's Dozen came up with using Enjoy and the Gift Card Frame die. Let's go hopping, shall we?
