Punch Board Gift Card Slider – May Masculine iWOW U (4 of 4)

Can I get a high-five!!!  I was asked to be a Guest Designer at Craft Project Central.  I was so honored to be asked and of course I said YES!  Well………I’ve been feverishly working on my project(s) and finally submitted them this last Sunday, A whole week before they were due!  I was thankful to have it completed and then jumped right in to designs for June’s Card Classes coming up the Saturday.  E-gad!  Well I hunkered down and completed the five designs for class and I think they are very cute [if I do say so myself].  Now on to today’s post.

Happy Big Day Gift Card

Today’s post is the fourth design we made in May’s iWOW U class.  This month’s class featured our versatile Envelope Punch Board as well as being all masculine!  I just love how versatile the Envelope Punch Board is… far you’ve see [of course] an envelope with card, a file tab gate fold card, a camera punch art card and finally a matchbook sliding gift card holder.  The Envelope Punch Board is no uni-tasker!  I learned how to make this fun matchbook slider from a class that I attended at my upline’s [Barb Brimhall]!  You can click here to see the adorable holiday gift card slider.  

To give the masculine feel the base is Naturals White, we tore the edges of the Early Espresso layers and sponged them with Early Espresso ink (it added lots of depth) and using the Natural Ribbon gave another masculine’ish texture.  Finally they heat embossed the “happy big day” in Early Espresso as well to give that subtle bling.  [grin]  Below is the inside…….

Yes, that is leftover embossing powder to the left of “celebrate”.  I wasn’t to show how important it is to use an Embossing Buddy before stamping and sprinkling with embossing powder.  [I forgot to use it]  When you open the flap and slide up the gift card sits in the pocket behind the “celebrate”.  There is enough room above to write a little something.  I hope you’ve enjoyed May’s iWOW U Masculine designs featuring the Envelope Punch Board.  I would love to hear what you think if these cards, so please leave me a note.  Happy Hump Day!
