A gift card set

So when I initially saw the Hero Arts challenge, I was thinking about doing the card set (I eventually did - that's another post), not a gift card set, much less a gift card. The whole 'pocket card' idea just wasn't really clicking with me...that is, until I saw THIS beautiful card by Lin. Then I just had to try it! Using the Winter Forest digi kit again - so fun!
Thanks for the inspiration, Lin! :)

I hadn't orginially planned to make a set, but I started a video tutorial on the digital stamping, and needed another sample. As I had two cards when that was finished, I figured I had better just make it an 'even' three. ;)

 Each of the cardstock bases have some subtle watermark stamping on them

I decided to cut little tabs in the cardstock to keep the larger side of the base in place.

Glitter...soooo much prettier in real life...

Gift card inside - a craft store one, obviously. ;) Oh, and you can see the watermark stamping a weeeee bit here - music background on this one.

The set again...
