Gift Card Set ~ using Stampin’ Up’s Venetian Romance DSP

A dear friend is celebrating a milestone birthday later this month, but she doesn’t want any fuss, no buying of presents, parties or cake etc. Well I certainly cannot let such an occasion pass me completely by, so ……………

I love to make cards and 3D items, so the project I chose as my gift to her brings both of these aspects of paper crafting together! She is an avid letter writer so I decided to make her a set of 10 cards in a neat little folder. I have met her restriction of not ‘buying’ anything – ‘cos I made it all of materials I had in my ‘stash’.


My three main colors are Pistachio Pudding, Crisp Cantaloupe and Soft Suede.  All the sentiments were stamped in Island Indigo with some sponging in Soft Suede.  These are the colors  in the Venetion Romance DSP I chose to use.

The sentiments were from ‘Petite Pairs’ stamp set and the Artisan Label Punch used to layer them.

Each card was stamped with the ‘swirly’ image from the ‘Best of Shelli’ 25th anniversary set.

The front cover of the folder used ‘Chalk Talk’ stamp and matching framelits.

If you ‘follow’  ~  ‘like’  and ‘comment’ on this post I will happily send you the recipe for this set of cards with the matching holder.  Not a bad deal…….. !!!!
