CAS-ual Fridays Stamps Small Business Saturday Release: Bubble Box Fri-Dies!





Happy Small Business Saturday!

I'm back with a special new release from CAS-ual Fridays Stamps...
Bubble Box Fri-Dies...an awesome set of 5 nesting dies!

The good news:
They are available now and 15% off through Monday!

For my card above, I used one of the dies to make a window. So easy!
I heat embossed the tree and sentiment from Snowflake Splendor in green. 
I tried to *branch out* (get it?! hehe!) from my usual color schemes, uh white and kraft, with these colors. The sentiment is on vellum, haven't used that in awhile either.

For my next project below, I had to show how Michele created the largest Bubble Box die to be a gift card holder. Doesn't everyone give a lot of gift cards lately? Like year round even?

I used the die to cut out a Bubble Box in kraft cardstock and a piece of double-sided patterned paper. I heat embossed the fun sentiment from Naughty or Nice in red. Then to make it into a gift card holder, score at 1 3/4" at each end. I cut off the "flap" from my kraft piece that I had heat embossed on and glued it over the polka dot paper. I love patterned paper, but sometimes you want your sentiment to stand out, right? This way, the best of both worlds! To finish it off, I strung some wooden stars from Studio Calico onto baker's twine and "encouraged" them to stick at certain points with mini glue dots. For my "closure" element, I used some old card magnets from Basic Grey, love those things, but it can easily be held together with a belly band or ribbon too. You'll want to check out the blog for the GORGEOUS sample Michele made with striped paper and a glittery snowflake!




I hope you love the projects! Let me know if you have any questions!

Be sure and head over to the CAS-ual Fridays blog to see the amazing samples the rest of the design team created! So much diversity!

I'll be back tomorrow at midnight with another new release for Sofa Sunday!

Thanks so much for stopping by! Hugs and happy stamping!

Oh, Angie, I'm absolutely in love with your gift card holder! It's perfect in every way! Love the way you folded the die-cut, the beautiful sentiment, the baker'a twine running around the edge through the little stars... Perfect design! :)
