Throughout all of June, we’re offering a terrific eScape Bundle with products at 25 percent off, including a few of the essentials to create your own cards! Use the bundle at your eScape event to make a fun and easy card.
I got this idea several places, but I believe (and could be wrong) that the original is from this site. I made it as a Father’s Day, Masculine Birthday, Male Grad, etc gift card holder. Obviously with different colors/paper choices it could be for any occasion.

I had a little fun with Rub-ons that I got from this year’s Sale-a-Bration. It was the first time I tried using them. I tried on a small coconut chocolate scented candle from Partylite. It wasn’t as easy as I thought but I think I mastered how to do it on glass now. I’m sure starting with paper would have been much easier 🙂
Here’s my Save the Date Announcements that I made for our wedding next June. I just used a card front instead of making a full card since all the info was on the front anyway.
So Swirly Stampin’ Around Wheel
Orchid Opulence cut to 5-1/2″ x 4-1/4″
Certainly Celery cut to 2″ x 4-1/4″ (approx)
Very Vanilla cut to 1/2″ x 4-1/4″ (approx)
Orchid Opulence Classic Ink
Blue Grosgrain ribbon with white stitching cut to 12″
The printing was all done with my computer (Adobe InDesign) as I made 75ish of these, I cut, and adhered the pieces and used a ribbon technique I found here: One-hole bow tutorial. I’m not sure if it made my process faster or not, but it eliminated the need to glue/tape down the ribbon.
I still have some to distribute, so if you haven’t gotten yours, its coming. Unless I don’t know who you are!
