On Sunday afternoon I had a fun time hanging out with a wonderful friend of mine, Stacy, who had a workshop. It was great getting to meet new people and share my love for paper crafting and Stampin' Up!. As her hostess gift I made her this card with the magazine card holder, pictured below. I made 5 cards just changing the color of the flower on the front and the scallop circle behind the happy birthday. Thank you Dawn Griffith for giving me the idea for it.
When I first made the cards they looked kinda plain to me and knew I had to add something to them. They were already assembled, so I knew I couldn't add embossing using a folder, although that would have looked great. I went to the stamp set Botanical Blooms #140757 that coordinates with paper and framelits and found the little flower stamp. It was perfect, because I could add it when the card was already put together. It is amazing how one little stamp can make a difference on a card. This stamp set and framelits are offered as a bundle #140819 for a 15% discount.
For the cards I used Wild Washabi #108641 as the base for all the cards.
The base is cut at 5 1/5" x 8 1/5" scored at 4 1/4"
Cajun Craze #119684 cut at 5 7/8" x 4 1/8"
Whisper White #100730 is cut at 5 1/4" x 4".
I used the Botanical Gardens Designer Series Paper #140583 on the front of the card and to decorate the box.

Stacy loved her cards and holder and I hope you do too!
