Criss Cross Gift Certificate

Stampin up cottage wall designer series paper  

Her friends said she loved Cottage Wall Designer Series Paper.  It was just the inspiration I needed for putting together this gift certificate for Judy's retirement–a gift this passionate stamper was delighted to have.

Do you know someone who loves to stamp or perhaps you want to drop a hint to a significant other?  I can create a Stampin' Up! gift certificate with the recipient's favorite colors or products in mind (redeemable exclusively thru me, minimum $35) or can even whip up an e-card gift certificate in 24 hours as a last minute gift.  Click here for more details.


  • Criss Cross cards offer the perfect pocket for a gift certificate or gift card.  Click here for Beate's Splitcoaststampers tutorial on how to create one.
  • Stampin' Up!'s Designer Series Paper collections mix and match beautifully.  Such fun to mix patterns with this design.
  • Juice up the back of any card with a personalized stamp.  I used the "Hand Stamped By" Stamp (115602).  It fits neatly in the Designer Label Punch(107590). 

Note:  Personalized stamps cannot be ordered on-line.  Click here to email me if you would like to order one.  You can combine with additional Stampin' Up! products.
