Then all of your die cutting and punching.

It's time for another Blog Hop!!!

GlitterQueenHop LOGO

Today I am showcasing the

"Precious Parcel" card kit from the 

Stampin Up 2019 Sale - A - Bration booklet.

20190101_153757

I made a card as shown for my 1st item

THEN, I decided to make a treat holder out of the 2nd card !!

So happy how it turned out!!!

20190103_083651

 

Supplies used :

Precious Parcel card kit  149750

(Free with any $50.00 order from Jan 3 - Mar 31, 2019)

(2) 7/8 x 4 1/4 Soft Seafoam cardstock  146988

Pear Pizzazz Ink  147104

Snack size baggie

Multipurpose liquid glue  110755

Clear Wink of Stella Glitter Brush  141897

Simply Scored board  122334

Rectangle Stitched Framelits  148551

Small Velcro circle

Piece of scrap ribbon

 

So, LET'S GET TO IT!!!

20190102_231409

- First we will assemble the Mossy Meadow card,

per Kit instructions,

 then add some Wink of Stella to it.

- Next, we need to cut off the side flap

being careful not to cut off the curved edge.

(I slightly bent that part up while cutting off the flap)

- Now scoring

20190102_184508

- Score a 3/8" score line from the crease at the top off the card,

Just past the slot opening

 
20190101_173607

  • - Place the original Score line on the score board so it lines up at 5 3/8"
  • Now score at 5 1/4 and 5 5/8.

20190102_231842

- Gather your plastic bag into a small bundle and  dab it into

your ink then on your 2 pieces of  cardstock.

  • -Score those on long side at 1/4" 
  • and short side at 1/4" and 5/8"

20190102_183227

- cut bottom as shown on picture

20190102_183629

  • - Take tape backing off and attach side panels. 
  • attach bow and corners to front of pouch BEFORE
  • you attach the front to the back of your pouch.

20190102_205158

- Fill pouch with your choice of goodies

20190102_223411

- I tied a bow with a piece of scrap ribbon

and used it to hide the hole on the flap

20190102_223709

( The stickiness from the Velcro is what holds the bow in place )

20190102_203600

- I took the flap that we cut off and used the New stitched rectangle dies on it.

20190102_223134

  • Place embellishments on card and put on some Wink of Stella!
  • Voila!

Here is a side view

20190103_100135

 

This step is not necessary, but it makes for a nice little Note card to

have handy when you need it!!
