December AEI♥U Challenge

I picked up a couple of the newer Avery Elle dies and haven't really had a chance to play with them until today. The December AEI♥U Challenge Sketch is perfect for using the Simply Tags Love Notes Die.

As you can see, this one is being used as a gift card holder. I recommend checking out Nina Yang's tutorial to see how fun and versatile this die set is.

I used the same opening shape on the front and back of the pocket - extending the back piece and cutting into the front piece.

A circle die cut is paired with one of the new AE Pinked Dies to provide a home for the sentiment from the All Squared Up stamp set.

The tags are not adhered together which allows a little bit of movement as they hang from the twine bow.

Thanks for stopping by,

  6. oooh, you got these dies! I remember watching that video, sounded like a good idea. I'd certainly get use out of the gift card holder like you've made here. Great card, Jacquie. Love the arrow paper too!
