Pop Up Gift Card

This week at Sweet n' Sassy the challenge is to create a pop up card.  There are lots of tutorials and variations, but since I wanted to add a gift card, I chose to use a very basic design.

One of the things I love about digital stamps is the ability to resize them.  I created my own DP using my Cocoa's Latte Digital Stamp in different sizes.  The main image has been colored with Prismacolor pencils.  By layering it on cs, it created a pocket for the gift card.  The sentiment is die cut, layered on cs, and then I added some pearls.

For the front of the card, I cut the image in a hexagon shape.  I used an embossing pen to create the corrugated look on the sleeve and added some liquid pearls.  The sentiment is from Heartfelt Creations, cut apart.  I added some Glossy Accents on the lid and then added the panel with pop dots.

Every card you enter throughout September, you will get one entry to be eligible for winning 3 digis of your choice from the Sweet 'n Sassy Stamps store. Be sure to play along every week.
