Happy Thursday crafters! Today is a special day, as Pretty Pink Posh celebrates their May 2017 product release! I was so excited that Paulina from Pretty Pink Posh asked me to guest for this hop. There are many beautiful and fun products in this release, which I think you will enjoy!

Today I am creating a set of three gift card holders, which feature many of the new May release products from Pretty Pink Posh. Two of my favorites from this release are the Scallop Circle Tags and the Scallop Borders 2 die sets. Both are used in these cards.

The Scallop Circle Tags come in two different sizes. The set also has a small perforated flap that can be die cut into either of the tags… this would be super cute as a peek-a-boo tag, don’t you think??

The Scallop Borders 2 die set is a second addition to Paulina’s scalloped borders collection; she previously released the Scallop Borders 1 die set. This collection of both borders are so handy for a variety of things; today I used the chevron from the new Scallop Borders 2 set to create a fancy edge on my gatefold flaps. With the scalloped, chevron edge, the gatefold design instantly has a much more interesting appearance.

And how about those gorgeous florals? Those are from the new Build a Bloom stamp set, also by Pretty Pink Posh. The stamp set is made up of a bunch of different floral images that can be used to make custom bouquets and arrangements to pretty backgrounds. I used the stamps to create a tone-on-tone stamping effect for my gatefold flaps, and then on the inside of the card, create a much more colorful pattern.

By having the continuity in patterns on both the front and the inside of the card, this ties everything together. The look is not too busy because of the subtle tone-on-tone effect for the front flaps; this balances out the bright colors of the inside perfectly.

For the sentiments on these gift card holders, I was really excited to break out the new Hero Arts You Are Loved stamp set. I picked this up out at Simon Says Create last month and couldn’t wait to start using it!

I really love how there are so many unique sentiments included in this set, all centered around kindness and encouragement. I chose to use the sentiment “you are loved” on all three of these cards, along with the small heart image.
