Why a StandUp Bass? Well…that is what I see when I walk into my husband’s music room next to my studio. I love this instrument. It is massive and beautiful and I love the sound of it too. I thought it can represent so many things like music, art, harmony, it is a good birthday card theme etc.

Here is what I created for today:


This is a gift card holder. I created it using two manila tags and here is how:



Starting with Tag 1



After you used the chalk through the stencil on tag one- you have a lot of access of chalk on top of the stencil











and here is the other side of the gift card holder after spicing it up with some fun stamps etc.



Here are the supplies I used:


Now hop on over to my friends and check what they did and comment for some changes to win the stencil :)
