Sparkly Gift Card with Shari

Hi everyone! It’s Shari here with a gift card idea for you as you start to plan your holidays and gift giving. But first, I must admit… I’m stuck on these colors, can’t get enough, find myself really drawn to them. So please bear with me while I get them out of my system :o)

Okay… so I wanted to play with some Simon Exclusives for this card and did something a little different this time. To challenge myself, I pulled some supplies together and put them in a basket then created from that, it was sort of like making a kit to create from.

I started with the Snowflakes Stencil and Wendy Vecchi’s Translucent Embossing paste on white card stock and sprinkled it with Rock Candy Distress Glitter before it dried.

I used the Holiday Circles stamp & die set along with the Kate Snowflake and gift card envelope die cuts.

This was a fun card to make and everything pulled together really well. I’ve also shot a video of the whole process…enjoy!

Thanks for joining me today, I’ll see you next time!

  1. I loved your card today. I purchased some products to imitate your creative card. Once again you showed me why you are the creative director for SSS! :) Thanks for sharing. I hope you have a blessed Thanksgiving later this month.

  2. I love your gift card enclosure card and the colors, too! The colors are perfect for creating some masc. gift card enclosures and I like them because they are not the same old, same old….not that there is anything wrong with that!!!! LOL

  3. Shari, I just love how all your cards just flow together so easily. Best of the best when it comes to design and color choices. Thanks Shari.

  4. Gorgeous card! I love that shiny embossing paste and the way you use it to adhere the dry glitter… I will definitely try this one.

  5. I am so glad I caught your video this morning. I am a little new to the embossing paste and had already made up my mind to purchase some, but when you said “translucent” and “pattern paper”, all the glorious bells and whistles started to ring :) thanks!

  6. Shari, you are so talented! I love your style of crafting and admit to ATTEMPTING to copy some of your ideas, but my cards pale by comparison. Thanks for sharing!
