Envelope Gift Card


I needed a quick gift certificate for one of my customers (they are so good to each other... I love them). I was reminded of these easy envelope holders from my friend Mish who recently made some adorable ones (love all that she does).

I used my pretty shimmery envelopes for some extra sparkle and stamped them with the flowers from the Office Accoutrement set in the Spring Mini in pink passion and old olive. I used the die cut stickers from the Accents and Elements Little Reminders tin to touch em off. I made a gift card using Microsoft Picture It! with the business card format and then printed it out on Whisper white, trimmed it and added an olive layer and a pink passion tab with the new Round Tab Punch. Then added more die cut stickers again to the inside from the Little Reminders Tin.









I left a space on the inside for my customer to write a message.

These are easy peasy. Just take an envelope, fold it in half, take the flap and cut down on the center fold. Tuck the right side in, and lick and seal the left side. A perfect pocket. Layer it on some card stock and add some ribbon and you have a neat little gift card.

I'm waiting for UPS to bring a big order for my girls. I can't wait for my customer to see her gift certificate. She is THE sweetest person. I hope she knows how much we all appreciate her friendship. :) I KNOW she'll have fun shopping!

Have a super day everyone.... thanks for stopping by.
