BSS MONDAY IDEA - Zipper like pull tab die

Welcome to the Buffalo Stamps and Stuff Monday Idea.
Today, we are going to take a look at the new Jillian {die}signs, by Spellbinders, that is a Pull Tab, zipper like die that allows you to place words, or even a gift, like a gift card or money
behind the zipper like opening, so that when the receiver pulls open the tab, the message or gift is exposed. If you went to the latest Stamp Camp, you made a card using this fantastic die and
you already know how wonderful it is, but for those of you who didn't, let's take a look!

OK, there were absolutely no instructions with the die, so here is what I did.
Ran the die through my cutting machine where I wanted it on the front of my card.

I then adhered at the edges only to another piece of
card stock. I would then adhere this to a card blank and decorate.
For this illustration, I have stamped a message inside.

Here it has money enclosed.

And finally, a gift card is enclosed.
This card is 5x7 and the die fits across, or you could use
the zipper like die going the long way on the card also.
Paper is My Mind's Eye, The Merry Days of Christmas from last year.
The words, a gift for you, are from a stamp set by Jillian Vance Designs also,
Money, Money (2012-013)

This card is smaller, 41/4x51/2.
I placed the die on the paper where I wanted it, with some of the
die going over the edge.
Snowflake die is Memory Box
Rhinestone centers.
This die will come in handy for birthdays, and any occasion when you
want to give a little lift with a sentiment, or a small gift.
Thanks for stopping by today.
Have a great Monday.

What a fabulous idea for gifts. So original. I love all of your sample cards using this die. I think I would have a hard time picking a favorite, but if I had to I would say maybe the last one with the snowflakes. Maybe because it is quite cold here this morning so I'm thinking we could get snow soon. Kisses to my well-behaved friend.

Sue, you are on a roll. Looking at all those fun cards makes me green with envy to get my hands on that die. Will have to track one down. Love the Memory Box die too.
