Gift Card Holder - part one
This gift card holder with a pretty shape is from the Cricut Artiste cartridge. I used the stamped banner for a card earlier this month (the stamp is from one of the three coordinating sets that are bundled with the cartridge). I liked it so much that I used it again for this holder. It is part of a bigger project that I'll share as soon as I can. Thanks again for all of the good wishes you have sent to my husband for a speedy recovery from his injury - I have been pretty preoccupied with taking care of him and some other family events.
If you are thinking about purchasing the Artiste cartridge, it is available only through Close to my Heart consultants. My friend Melanie Brown is a consultant and she would be happy to help you. Melanie's site is HERE. The Cricut Artiste Cartridge bundle is HERE on her site - it includes three coordinating stamp sets and three sheets of chipboard shapes.
Friday, August 31st, is the last chance to order the Artiste cartridge and get the August Stamp of the month (Baroque Borders) for $5. The September Stamp of the Month is Fall Favorites. Until September 30th, you can also get the special National Stamping Month set for only $5 - it is a double set you can see HERE and you add it to your cart HERE.
Here is a peek inside the gift card holder. These are so quick and easy to make - just score and fold on a few lines, add some adhesive, and your card has a pretty presentation. This card holder is on page 55 of the cartridge handbook (letter G key, card function).
Melanie has an additional special offer for the month of August. If you buy the Artiste bundle through her, she will put your name in a drawing to win a brand new Cricut E2 machine with purple end caps. Friday will be the last day to receive a chance to win - it will be very exciting for one lucky crafter when she draws the winner!
There are lots of special offers and sales for the Labor Day weekend - both online and in stores. I hope you find some great deals if you go shopping!
Lettering Delights has a huge new bundle of simple cuttable shapes in many file formats for a special price of $49, ending August 31st. Click HERE to go to the site and then click on "What's New" to find the Simple Shapes Super Plus Bundle. If you first order the freebie of the month and check out, you will receive a coupon code for 25% off with your order confirmation email to use on your order.
I am a bit behind on email with everything that has happened this week - I'll try to catch up over the weekend. If you have sent a question and you don't get an answer from me by Tuesday, please send another message.
