Inspire Me Monday... Gift Card Tutorial

Hello fellow Power Poppy lovers! I’m Allison and I’ll be your host today for Inspire Me! Monday!

If you don’t know me then you won’t know that I always love a good interactive card...yup... something that moves or pulls up or swings out. But I love a card that contains something special like a gift card so today I'm going to share with you my very first video on how to create a fun card that holds a gift card inside for that special someone on your shopping list!

Because the holidays are creeping up on us so quickly, I thought I’d make a Christmas themed card but this tutorial will work for any type of card; birthday, anniversary, thank you... you name it.

Today’s video features the amazing two newly released stamp sets, Heaven & Nature Sing and Bough Wow Wow.  These two stamp sets along with 6 other Happiest Holiday Stamp Collection are now on sale in the Power Poppy Store.

I hope you enjoyed my first video and get a chance to make a few gift card holding cards real soon!

Happy stamping!
