Taylored Expressions Sneak Peek - Day 3

It's Day 3 of sneak peeks at Taylored Expressions and today we're featuring the set called Enjoy and its coordinating Gift Card Frame Die.  This set is perfect for gift card giving all year round!  This set was concepted by Jami Sibley and illustrated by Nancy McKinney for the Whimsical Wishes line at Taylored Expressions and contains 18 images including a frame, 11 gift icons, and 6 sentiments.  Enjoy is also compatible with the From the Heart set we showed you yesterday! 

For today's project, I created a gift card holder out of an A2 envelope.  I folded the envelope in half and cut down the middle of the flap and only sealed one side, leaving the other side open as a pocket for the gift card.  I covered the envelope with papers from the Brook Collection by Crate Paper.  I stamped the frame from the set in Ocean Depth VersaMagic ink and then stamped the sentiments and guitar image inside the frame in Early Espresso ink.  I die cut the frame using the Gift Card Frame Die

I stamped the guitar image again on another piece of cardstock, colored it using Copic markers and cut it out.  I mounted it with foam tape on top of the original stamped image. 

The gift card is neatly tucked into the pocket behind the "From All of Us" flap. 

I don't know about you, but I can't wait to see what the rest of the Baker's Dozen has used this set to create!
