Grandma’s Gift – Beautiful Handcrafted Card Set

In the 2013-14 Annual Catalogue, Stampin’ Up released Clear-Mount Stamp Cases for purchase in a pack of 4.  As well as being able to store stamps, you can also use them to store:

But, the thing I like to use them most for, is to make them part of the art.  By adding DSP or embellished cardstock to the sleeve on the outside of the case, you have a personalised, beautiful (and durable) card holder.  Add handcrafted cards with envelopes to the inside and – instant gift.  My project used Midnight Muse cardstock cut to 108 x 70 and scored 5” from each end.  I created a Soft Sky mat (412 x 612) and a Whisper White front (48 x 68).  The wading birds are from the Wetlands stamp set (as per my theme for Grandma), stamped in Early Espresso and the lines from the Gorgeous Grunge stamp set, stamped in Crumb Cake, Soft Sky & Coastal Cabana.
