Waltingmouse Gift Card It Release Today!

Have you been enjoying the peeks of the latest Waltzingmouse Release Gift Card it?  There are so many great things you can create with this set.  The stamp set and dies officially hit the Waltzingmouse web store today and to celebrate the design team is having a blog hop.  If you are hopping along you should have reached me from Anya Schrier's blog.  If you are just getting here and want to start at the beginning you can get a complete list and details at Claire Brennan's blog - Waltzingmouse Makes.

I made two projects for today.  With the first I mixed the new Gift Card It set with the Big Blooms Chrysanthemums.  I wanted to show you how well the new and the old mix together.  The frame from the Gift Card it Set fits an A2 4.25 x 5.5" card perfectly and looks beautiful with just about any of the existing sets.  
I also made a simple little gift card  holder for an engagement.  It was super easy to make.  I cut a piece of card stock 2 3/4 x 8", folded it in half, embossed the cover, die cut the back for the gift card insert, and added a few embellishments.  The fancy script from Big Day Additions, along with the embossing and a bit of ribbon make this look rich and expensive.

















The next stop on the hop is Jen Cuthbertson  - you're going to love her trendy, eclectic style.  Oh, but before you go please make sure you leave a comment.  One random winner will be chosen from all the comments left on the hop to win a free stamp set of their choice!

Thanks for stopping by and have a great day!
