Cherry Blossoms

Happy Friday all!  It’s been a busy start to July around here.  We’ve had birthday parties out the wazoo and I’m in the midst of planning my son’s 6th birthday party.  It’s been very hot, so we’ve spent a ton of time at the pool.  Add in the time spent refereeing kids and they are full days!
I have managed to get some time in my room — I have a bunch of things to share with you.  Actually, I finally figured out an easier way to print on my computer, which means I can print my digital images again.  It came at the perfect time — just in time for Bugaboo’s Christmas in July festivities.  When I received my newsletter earlier this month, I decided it would be fun to do the challenges.  What’s even better is that I was able to complete all 7 — so you’ll see me posting each day over the next week.  It’s odd that I seem to work better with deadlines than without.  
Today I have the card I made for my daughter’s teacher.  We were presenting her with a gift card, so I opted for a gift card holder.   I inked up Sweet Stamp Shop’s Cherry Blossom set for a simple and quick card.  

I’ve been trying to use up some of my older paper pads — I’m sure there will be a dozen more that I’ll just have to have with CHA around the corner.  Since I was dealing with cherry blossoms, I pulled out the Basic Grey Bittersweet to match up with chocolate and rose.  Since I was making the gift card holder and needed 12 inch paper for the inside, my color choices were somewhat limited.  The front was kept very simple — the card is 4×4 — I stamped the branch of cherry blossoms and cut it out with Nesties.  I rimmed it with pearls and added in some stitched ribbon.

Inside is the gift card holder — I had found a tutorial HERE a few years ago and I really like this format.  I dressed up the inside with some more Bittersweet papers and added a sentiment from the Cherry Blossom set.
