Survival Kit — Valentine’s Day & Gift Card Holders

Today I have a trio of cards from the Man’s Survival Card Kit. Because this was going to an unknown recipient, I wanted to steer clear of the religious holidays — Christmas, Easter, Hanukkah, etc. I did want to include Valentine’s Day and to round out the set with 10 cards, I made up two gift card holders that were regular sized cards.

First up is the Valentine’s Card. I decided to use the super cute Crush on You stamp from Stampavie.

Isn’t that a sweet image? I stamped the cute couple in Memento Tuxedo Black and colored it in with Copics. This is a nice sized image, so it is cut out with the bigger rectangle Nesties. I made this a true Valentine’s card with Pure Poppy, Raspberry Fizz and Simple Valentine patterned paper, all from PaperTrey. Since the image takes up much of the card, I only added a pretty bow of Raspberry Fizz grosgrain and a small sentiment from the Tiny Treats Valentine set, also from PTI.

Next up is a very simple gift card holder.

This was super simple. I used a favorite color combo of pink & black. The pink is embossed with the Cuttlebug Houndstooth folder. The patterned paper is from Making Memories Sabrina, as is the ribbon. Inside I stamped the small sign from the Gina K Perfectly Polished set with Celebrate as a greeting.

Last up is a fantastic pop-up gift card holder. I knew what I wanted to do, had seen it on a few blogs, but had to do a little searching for the details on how to do it. I found a fantastic video tutorial HERE.

This time I used another favorite pink companion, Chocolate Chip. I paired this with more Sabrina paper, ribbon and these fantastic little acrylic “stickers” I’ve been hoarding — oops, I mean storing — for over a year. I stamped the sign from the Gina K Perfectly Polished set and For You. Before removing it from the Nestie, I sponged Memento Angel Wings over the top.

Inside I kept it very simple, adding in pink houndstooth dp from Sabrina and a small rectangle for writing a message.
