September 2013 Play Day Projects, Project Two

The bow die for the Big Shot was introduced at the Stampin Up Annual Convention this year, and one of the samples they showed at that time was a card very similar to this one:

I basically just changed the card from a birthday card to a Christmas card.  I also saw a similar card on Julie Davidson's blog and she has an excellent video tutorial if you are interested in making this card.

When the card opens up, it looks like this:

A gift card is attached to the inside part that comes up when the card is opened!  The reason you sww the sentiment on the framelit piece is that I forgot to stamp the sentiment until after my card was together and I found out that it doesn't stamp well when you try to stamp with a bow on the other side!  So I fixed the awful stamping by restamping the sentiment and cutting it out with the little framelit, then covering my mistake!
