"Try It Different" Tuesday: Gift Card Set

Like many of you, our friend Becky O'Donnell has been a loyal Inky stamper for years. You may remember some of her projects featured on our blog, including her infamous recipe pages (which I adore, being the foodie that I am).

Last summer, I saw Becky at the Hamburg convention, and we talked about some ideas she had for a stamp set that could be used to decorate gift card enclosures. She ended up following her vision and designing 11232MC Gift Card Clear Set, which we asked if we could produce for her:

Why use those boring commercially produced gift card sleeves when you can make your own, much nicer one, as Debbie Fisher did here:

As you can see from the layout, there are tons of elements included in this set. Debbie used the dollar sign border on this charming zippered money pouch, which she sewed herself:

Even better, you're not limited to just money-themed projects. Debbie also created this sweet and simple thank you card that will show your appreciation for gifts or other thoughtful acts:

Speaking of thank you cards, did you see this week's card on the main Inky website? Debbie used 11236MC Kitty's Friends Clear Set (drawn by artist Tammy DeYoung) to create it:
Guess what? I happen to have one of those sets in my prize stash, and I think it's about time that we give it away, don't you agree? Leave a comment about 11236MC Kitty's Friends Clear Set, and you'll be entered in our BLOG CANDY drawing to win it.
On Sunday, June 29th, I'll randomly choose the winner and post the lucky person's name here on the blog, so please check back to see if you've won!
