Waltzingmouse April Release Day 3

Hi there - this is my second post of the day... please scroll down or click here to see this week's Serendipity Stamps Challenge.

Hello there. Welcome to Day 3 of the previews for the April Release at Waltzingmouse Stamps.

The sets we preview as part of the April release will be available for purchase on April 18. The last set we are sharing is another masculine set.. I know you will just love this one! Today, we bring you Man of the Hour.

Here are my cards for today:

First up, a little play on the super hero sentiment. I love the different font combinations in this set. There are so many great typefaces combined in this one.

My next card combines a gift card holder right into the card front.

Its like a card in a card!

I cut a piece of cardstock slightly larger than my gift card and scored the sides to fold in and the bottom to fold up to create a little envelope. I trimmed the excess off and folded the flap down to resemble a card. A fun way to give a gift card!

The three sets we have been previewing will be available for sale tomorrow. Our new release hop will start at 2:00 pm EST... you should keep an eye out for contests! See you then! Here are the rest of the Design Team links for today. Enjoy!

Anya Schrier - you are here!

  2. Oh I love the gift card idea! Your cards are so 'fuss free' but these sentiments don't need it - they speak for themselves. The stripes are just perfect tho'. Hugs

  3. OK...
    we had the same idea with that first sentiment but yours turned out so much more awesome than mine...
    I LOVE it and now see where I wanted to go but just didn't make it.
    I have it hidden away for Suzanne's next Ugly Card Blog Hop! :)
    Love the gift card right under that awesome sentiment...
