Whipper Snapper Duck - Gift Card Holder

This is the other card that I made with my new Whipper Snapper Stamps.

There is really not much to this card. I tried all kinds of printed paper, but it was only taking away from the image. So, I decided to just let him take the stage. He is so CUTE-CUTE-CUTE!!

Card measures 5 1/4" x 5 1/4". You probably noticed, I am really into square cards now.. I think I am just a bit tired of the A2 size cards..

I cut cardstock at 5 1/4" x 12" for the card base and scored it at 5 1/4" and then at 10 1/2. Folded the small piece at the bottom of the card to create the pocket for the gift card, I used red tape to attach the sides.

The squares were cut and embossed with Nestabilites. I stamped the image twice, once on the square cut with Nestabilites and the second time on the scrap piece of paper. Cut out duck's head (wow, that sounds kind of wrong ;) ), duck's hand and the flowers, and popped them up on the main image using the pop-up dots. The image was colored with my Copic markers.

I will be teaching a class with this card plus the one with the Poodle at the Cranberry Hill Mercantile. We will make four cards, two of each design.
Dates/times for the class:
Wednesday, June 25th, 11 am to 1:30 pm
Thursday, June 26th 11 am to 1:30 pm
Thursday, June 26th 5 pm to 7:30 pm

All supplies used on this card are available at Cranberry Hill Merchantile.

Hi Irina,

Although I already had a sneak preview of these cards in class I felt I had to let everyone know how great they are. What a super idea. The gift card holder is as nice as the gift you choose to put inside. I love it and can't wait for the class. I also can't wait for the other class with the eiffel tower. Your creativity constantly amazes me. The Tilda class and the holy cow and the cat were great too. If you miss these clases you're really missing something truly worthwhile.
