TSG and ShortCuts

This week some of the Trendsetters from There She Goes will be sharing projects using some products from ShortCuts. Be sure to check the TSG Blog for more information as well as the blogs of the individual Trendsetters for ideas. In this post I am using There She Goes BLOOM set. I used a gift card holder by ShortCuts as well as a frosted acrylic card by ShortCuts for these projects.
For the gift card holder, I decorated the front cover. I ran a ribbon behind the main image and around the back and tied a bow on the right side. I left the inside blank as I am not sure who will receive this and for what occasion it may be given. At the time of use I will add a sentiment embossed in white. I took a second picture of the gift card holder so you could see the inside. What an easy and fabulous way to 'package' a gift card.

The frosted card is simple. I wanted to make a card with no added paper, which was indeed a challenge. I stamped the image and sentiment on the front in black Stazon ink. I then colored the image from behind with my Copics, so I would not contaminate the tips on the markers. I added ribbon and a cardstock button. Inside, which you cannot see, is a second sentiment. However, when the card is held flat, the inside sentiment shows through, placed lower than the sentiment on the front cover. IYKWIM????!!!!

Unfortunately, it is very hard to take pictures of the acrylic card, but please know that it has a fabulous frosted quality that just doesn't show at all here.
