Spring Gift Certificates

I think I am in trouble. I seriously want every single set in the Spring Mini this year. I LOVE the paper. One of my very sweet customers wanted a gift certificate for her friend, so I decided to try something different. I hope she likes it. :)

I made the little "holder" with the Mini Envelope Template from Stampin' Up!. Then, I punched a small portion out of the top with the front part of the Round Tab Punch so that when it's pushed in, the tab part still shows nicely. I used the new double sided paper Petals & Paisleys for the bottom and the envelope and the tab. The cool caribbean card stock is stamped with the cirlce image from the stamp set Polka Dots & Petals in craft white. The flower and the strips on the side and bottom are from the Accents & Elements tin Little Reminders. LOVE that little tin! Also added some grosgrain ribbon, some ric rac and some colored brads. The card opens from the bottom. The name on the tab was done with my new snap-stamps from Ellen Hutson! LOVE those!!!

I printed the gift certificate out on Microsoft Picture It! using the Avery business card template. Of course I just printed it out on whisper white card stock and not business cards, then just trimmed around it, added the tab, then mounted it on card stock.

Thanks for visiting today! Hope you all have an awesbomb day! :)
