Artfully Sent - Exploring Sleeve Cards

The Artfully Sent sleeve cards are perfect for sliding in photos, as well as providing a cool background for any card. They can also be sized down to make awesome gift card holders. Using the sleeve cards on page 13, I made two intricate cards:

I love the background design on this 5 x 7 sleeve card! All I had to do was add a Juniper card liner, and it really made the pattern pop. I added some Canary cardstock and a touch of dimension with the Juniper Paper Fundamentals. The Pixie pink shape coordinates with the stamp set that came with the Artfully Sent collection. For some sparkle I added Pink Shimmer Trim, Pink Glitter Gems and Gold Sequins.

To turn a sleeve card into a gift card holder, simply size the card to 3.75" - this will give you enough wiggle room to add a tag if you'd like, or just make it easy to slide the gift card in and out. I used Canary for my tag and those cute Pixie triangles are leftovers from the Triangle Border Punch! Silver Sequins, Clear Sparkles and Slate Ribbon finish it off. Again, the sentiment comes from the Artfully Sent collection.

 The Artfully Sent collection is amazing! Cards, gifts (and even layouts!) are a breeze with this cartridge. Want one of your own? 

And remember, you're eligible for the October Stamp of the Month for $5 and a FREE spool of ribbon!!
