A "Gift" Card

Everyone loves to receive beautiful, hand-made cards. After oohing and aahing over them, most of the cards I receive end up hanging on my fridge for a few days. That is until my very tidy husband asks me, "what would you like to do with these?" (hint, hint). I sadly end up throwing most of them away...GASP!
I made this card with the intent to extend the life of the hand-made gift. The flower, made with Stampin' Up! More Amore Designer Fabric, is a pin that can be worn on a shirt, blouse, coat, or added to a purse or bag for a little extra pizazz. The pin easily comes off the card and can be worn immediately. The recipient will enjoy your gift over and over again.
Not into pins? Pass it on to a friend who is!
