Present Shape Card

I couldn't help but play with this kit some more! I love it! Wouldn't this line make the sweetest wall banner for a little girl's room? 

Anyway, I designed this on my Gypsy™ in London while we were on vacation there. I looked up the papers and thought it would make a cute present shape card.

I used the polka dotted flocked transparency, Tattered Angels Glimmer Mist™ and Stickles™ - all came with the kit. For the glimmer mist, I simply sprayed it on a paper towel and used it to "ink" the edges of the accordion cut and tag cut.

Artful Delight November Kit
Cartridges: Sweethearts™ and Tie the Knot™ (tag)
Button: Paper Trey Ink™
Twine: Paper Trey Ink™
Adhesive: Glue Arts Extreme Adhesive Squares™ and Martha Stewart Gel Adhesive™
Sentiment: Hero Arts™
Embossing Powder: A la Mode - white™
Heating Tool: Coloriser by EK Success™


  1. Weld two short presents together from Sweethearts (there is a tall present version as well).
  2. Create another front of present. Cut out of flocked transparency.
  3. Use layer of bow and cut out of desired paper.
  4. Adhere flocked transparency layer to front of card.
  5. Use Stickles where lines of box and bow would be. Let dry.
  6. Adhere bow to box.
  7. Cut one 1.75" circle tag from Tie the Knot™.
  8. Ink edges using Tattered Angels Glimmer Mist™ that has been sprayed on a paper towel. 
  9. Cut one 1.25" blank monogram feature from Tie the Knot™ (found on the lips page).
  10. Stamp sentiment onto blank monogram feature scalloped circle, and heat emboss with white embossing powder.
  11. Cut a .75"x8" strip of paper and score every .25". Bend into accordion shape and put one Extreme Adhesive Square™ at the end of it to hold the two ends of the paper together. (I LOVE those squares!)
  12. Use two more Extreme Adhesive Squares to adhere accordion shape to tag. 
  13. Use hot glue to adhere sentiment stamped scallop circle to accordion.
  14. Tie a bow with the twine through the button after looping it around the tag. 
  15. Adhere button and twine to card using hot glue.
  16. Put it on the top of a present or attach it to a gift bag and give it to someone special! :)

This picture is just to show you the flocked transparency. Those purple polka dots are flocking on the clear transparency. How cool is that? So my present is actually shiny in real life. 

Enjoy your day today and I hope it is fabulous! :)

This card also qualifies for Jenny at Wee Memories' Birthday Bash Challenge where Artful Delight is a sponsor this week!!! Head on over and play! Happy Blog Birthday Jenny!!!
