PERFECT BLEND FROM A PERFECT FRIEND!

A few days ago I posted a little candy holder/mini faux file folder from a new friend I made at the Creative Escape weekend I recently enjoyed.  Well, my new friend surprised me today with an awesome card in the mail!  I couldn't wait to share it with all of you.

This is the card, and it has this great little belly band on it.

Here it is without the belly band.

Here it is all opened up~~and that little extra flap there holds a gift card.

Is this a cool little "coffee cup stain" or what?
Bertina Maloy, you rock!  I love this card and cannot thank you enough for sending it to me; I just feel so special.

Okay, Bertina uses the Circle Card Thinlit to make her card, along with the Perfect Blend stamp set and  the Epic Day This and That Designer Series Paper. She also uses her Artisan Label Punch for the sentiment on the inside of the card.  Perfect Blend is one of my favorite stamp sets, and I am definitely going to need to make lots of these cards for holiday and birthday gifts.

Bertina shared an awesome idea with me for this "coffee cup stain".  Were you wondering how she did that?  It is so easy and such a neat idea.  She inked up the bottom of an embossing powder container.  Seriously, get out!  I know, why didn't I think of that.  Talk about a "MOMENT"!  A terrific idea, and it really looks like a "coffee cup stain".

THANK YOU SO MUCH FOR SHARING, BERTINA!!
