Give seeds as a gift.


Wow this week has flown by and its time for another challenge over at Wee Memories.  Challenge #46 is sponsored by Annabelle Stamps, go check out their site to see some great stamps and crafting items.

For this weeks challenge I decided to make a gift card, the idea is you give a card with a hidden surprise inside like special tea bags (see some I made here) store cards or even seeds as I have done.  I like the idea of giving a wildflower garden to a friend.  Its easy to sow and creates a beautiful sight in the summer and it attracts butterflies.


I made the holder using this Tutorial  The only difference is instead of making a band to fit round the card I added some ribbon that is attached behind the main stamped image, so can tie it with a pretty bow.
The base image is made using bundled sage distress ink to cover the card and then I stamped old letter writing in the same colour.  For the main image I used a Dew Drop ink called Pearlescent Thyme and then after attaching the ribbon I put it on to the card with pop dots..
So, ready to play along? I hope you will! Link up your finished creation to the Wee Memories blog. You have until midnight PST on Fri., Mar. 18 to be eligible for the prize. Have Fun.


Supplies:Hero Arts Stamps F5407 Lets Garden. CG197 Old Letter. CL430 Real Garden Petals.  Distress inks. Bundled Sage , Forest Moss and Dusty Concord. Dew Drop ink. Pearlescent Thyme.
