{ CPS #197 and my favorite stamp }

I wanted to make a card with my favorite stamp...Cover-a-card Music (CC029) from Impression Obsession. I used CPS #197 for the card. Music stamps are everywhere, but I love this one. The stamp is 5.75x5.75 inches and it's perfect for a standard size card. Standard size A2 - Folded Card Size 4.25" x 5.5"
I used Jeni Bowlin paint dabber to cover my stamp and I love the way it looks. I need to get more colors. I have Stick Candy (used on the card)  and Malted Milk which I used to paint the edges of my paper and cardstock. The paint so easy to apply and it dries really fast.
 I used a sentiment from Swirl Trees (CL196) that I stamped on the left over music cardstock. The snowflake is a Sizzix die that I sprayed with Apple Glimmer Mist. The card is sprayed with Dazzling Diamonds Glimmer Mist and it sparkles.

I needed a little gift card holder so I came up with this little thing. Can you see a gift card tucked in there? I used a paper sack that I folded in half and sewed along the edges. The sacks are 3 1/2 x 2 x 6 3/4 inches that I got at Hobby Lobby long time ago. Roben-Marie Smith has  Krafty Lace Bags on her blog and a video tutorial on how to make them . I thought this little size would be perfect for a gift card.
 I used Webster's Pages patterned paper and little embellishments that were leftover from Melissa's little kit. I stamped and cut out a little tree from Gift of Love (CL291) that I adhered/tucked on the inside. The little tag is from A Gift For You (CL148) stamp set and it fits perfectly here. In addition, I used a little strip of stamped music paper that was left from the card above. Folding the bag in half makes two little pockets...the front for a gift card and the back one for some treats.

If you need a quick little gift this would be perfect.
Have a great week!
