EAD designs stickerz card & gift card holder tutorial

EAD designs is sponsoring us this week at Betty Bee's Buzz. This is my first experience with their products, and I am totally enamored with their stickerz. They are re-positionable, which was lucky for me, since I had to try each word twice to get them on straight! I used EAD stickerz for my sentiment for this birthday card.

But I could not stop there...
I have a drawer full of Altoids tins in my craft room to re-purpose. They have been there for more than 8 1/2 years completely untouched. My niece just turned 2yo (happy birthday, Addison) and I wanted to give her a Toys R Us gift card. How much fun would it be to girl it up a little?



I placed the EAD stickerz sentiment on pink paper and fussy cut around it.

Then I mad a little card to fit inside (the gift card is inside the little blue card).




Much cuter, right? This was so much fun, I know I will have to do this again!



Other supplies

card:
  • Tim Holtz die and distress inks
  • Hero Arts stamps (flower & polka dot background)
  • K&Co. gem
tin:
  • K&Co. papers, die cuts, and acrylic alpha stickers
  • Bazzill card stock (blue)
  • SU pink ribbon
I hope you check out these EAD stickerz...you can color on them with your markers to coordinate with your project...I gotta try that next :)
