Waltzingmouse Gift Card It Stamp & Die Set Preview

Hi Friends!  I have some really exciting news to share with you today!  There's a new Waltzingmouse Release that hits the shoppe on Friday and I'm happy to be sharing in some of the sneak peeks today.   So what do we have planned?  Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday we are showing sneak peeks, and on Friday when the stamps hit the shoppe we'll be celebrating with a blog hop and offering up a free set to one lucky commenter.    Today we're showing you the new "Gift Card It" Stamp and Die Set.  
Warning:  Photo heavy post ahead!    The Gift Card It stamp set and dies have absolutely everything you need to make gift card holders and even some gift cards of your own.  There are some super cute sentiments and lots of little accent stamps that Waltzingmouse is so well known for.  I know.. enough... just get to the pictures right?  OK!    I made a little accordion book with some hand made gift cards.  The Gift Card it die set makes it easy to slip in the gift cards and make everything look clean and professional.   Here's close up's of each of the pages and cards. 
I stamped the laurel frame in white pigment ink and colored in the leaves with Sakura Souffle pens for a soft pastel look.  The set comes with a berry stamp, but I drew in a few little dots of my own. 
You can't see the gift card in this photo, it promises "Breakfast in Bed" !  The gift card die is a "window" die so it's easy to place over your stamped image to make cutting perfect each and every time. 
 And here's the finished project so you can see how it all came together.
  Want to see more?  Check out projects from the other ladies with sneak peeks for you today!

This is so well done Jeanne...you have to show us how you did the accordion part! I am very anxious to see the actual die...such a cute idea to make your own little gift cards...I will have to make one of these books for Carly!

Love this set and I can imagine it being used for cards as well with little things poking out of the bracket slits. Gorgeous fonts too.

Oh my goodness! This is just gorgeous!!! I love your colour scheme!
This idea would be lovely for a 'Baby's first' for a friend that they could fill out the cards as and when baby says its first word, takes its first steps etc...
