Besides my Christmas cards, I also like to make my own gift card holders. Gift cards are great, but I like to make a special card or holder for them. I even made my own envelope for the gift card! I used my Envelope punch board to make the gift card envelope. I must admit that I did change up the dimensions of the paper and the scoring to make a better fitting envelope. The one shown on the punch board seemed a little big for me (a lot of space at the top). After several trials and errors (LOL!), I found the perfect size. Not too big at the top! I cut my paper at 5 1/8 by 5 1/8 and started the punch and scoring at 2 1/8. This worked perfectly. I didn’t figure this out until I had almost all of my cards made! LOL! Oh well, at least I have it figured out for next year!
My paper is from Recollections, Christmas. This pad has so many pretty and co-ordinating Christmas papers. I used the Memory Box Eyelet Stocking and cut it out of the same papers. The ribbon is from my stash.
Here is what I came up with……
And another look with the card inside. . . . . . . . .
Time to get started on birthday, Valentine, and baby cards!
Thanks for stopping by!
