Check this out.......a new die!

 
I am here with a very VERY special post today!  My good friend Laurie Willison of Soapbox Creations had this idea for a new die.  She had this vision and brought it to life!  I think this die will be so useful for gift giving.  Here is a little note from Laurie:
 
As card makers, we spend a lot of time and put a lot of love into our cards. Then we get the gift ready for the party and what happens to the card? It gets put in an envelope and hidden away.  Now with this new Card Hanger Die, you can proudly display your card, as your card AND as your gift bag decoration!  If you love kraft colored things, like most crafters do, you have a stack of kraft gift bags ready to decorate.  Just add the die to several bags and then you will be ready with a quick gift at a moments notice.  Please check out Laurie's blog for more info on how to purchase this die and how to use it.  Don't forget to leave a comment for a chance to win one of these card hanger dies.  One winner will be randomly chosen from the comments on the 4 blogs!!
 
I've chosen to make a card with a teacher theme......cuz let's face it, this time of year is when you need a quick teacher's gift.  This die is FANTASTIC!  Just look at how easy and CUTE this makes your bag and your card!!  No envelope needed!  :)

Here's a close-up of the die and opening for your card!  What's great about this die is that it will be awesome for those cards that have lots of big embellishments that make them hard to mail!  What better way to show off your card than to hand deliver!

 My card uses a Notebook Paper embossing folder from Hobby Lobby and the Teacher's Apple stamp set.  These would be so easy to make several at a time.  Then you pair that with this new die.....LOVE!

What a clever, clever idea! Wouldn't it be beautiful to do a whole Christmas present collection in a similar style (yay, no wrapping!!!) Love your stunningly simple project!

Too funny - I just commented on your Val Day blog hop card, saying how LI had a genius idea with the stitched edge dies and then this title caught my eye. Laurie! What a great idea. No kidding it hurts a little bit each time a card gets tucked into an envelope.
