Hello everyone! I’m excited to share but sad at the same time that this is my last week guest designing for Doodlebugs. It’s been really fun creating with Mama Elephant goodies to share with you and I always love shopping at Doodlebugs, so I’d say that’s a win!
Today I’m sharing a fun gift card holder featuring the Little Agenda Froggy, Gift Pocket Tag dies and Easy Sentiments. I love that the gift pocket tag has a panel you can optionally add stitching holes to if that’s your thing. I love stitching on these small areas for a bit of relaxation in front of the TV.
The first thing I did was die cut the card and stitching holes, then chose some embroidery floss and started playing. After having to undo what I stitched because the math wasn’t right, I drew out a grid and started playing to make sure my pattern would work. Once that was decided, I stitched the panel up and glued it to my gift card holder tag.
Then I stamped and colored a few frogs from the Little Agenda Froggy stamp set and used the coordinating dies to cut them out. Next, I stamped and heat embossed a set of sentiments from Easy Sentiments and used the coordinating die to cut them out. This set is fun because you stamp and cut three sentiments at once.
I added everything with foam squares and flipped my project over to decorate the other side next!
On this side, I inked the white panel with yellow ink and a blending brush before popping more cute froggies up with foam squares. Then I glued another sentiment down with liquid glue. I did this so the card won’t get caught going in and out of the slot.
Next, I cut a hole reinforcer for both sides and glued them in place. I threaded ribbon through the hole and tied it with twine.
For finishing touches, I added black glaze pen to all the frog’s eyes and glossy accents to parts of the images like the heart, flower center, strawberry and balloon.
In case you like the idea of stitching on this panel but aren’t sure where to start, I created an idea sheet with six different patterns that are sized perfectly for this Gift Pocket Tag die set. Click HERE to download it.
