Square Envelope Gift Card

Hi there

Finally got round to posting the cards we made at last months card class.  Now that I'm a 'lady of leisure' there should be no excuses for irregular blog posts!  My next task is to tidy my craft space so that I can craft!  Why is it you tidy the space and within a day you are back to only having an A4 size clear space?

Anyway on with our creations:

The first card we made was this cool gift card - thanks to Kristine McNickle for the tutorial.  With Christmas fast approaching this is a great way to 'dress up' a gift voucher for family and friends.  This style of card can be used of any occasion - just change the design on the front and the paper on the inside.

When designing this card front I originally stamped the 'snowflake' in Old Olive but it looked a bit plain so I restamped it in Mossy Meadow and positioned it just off the original image to give a shadow look.  Use the Stamp-A-Ma-Jig to make sure you line the second image just off the first.  The Stamp-A-Ma-Jig is a great tool to have in your kit - check it out on page 176 of the main catalogue.

I forgot to take a photo with the voucher in the envelope! but I'm sure you can image one sitting in the envelope.  The envelope is one of our Square Envelopes (7.9cm x 7.9cm) with the 'flap' cut off and is on page 149 of the AC.  This page (and page 147) has to be one of my favourites in the catalogue - there are so many amazing products hidden on these pages.

And here's a side view.
