Crimped Envelope Gift Card Holder for Christmas

Hello!  I know this is just the beginning of Fall but a lot of people are already working on Christmas cards and gift ideas.  I love to give gift cards for Christmas and I am always looking for creative ways to give them.  Today, I have a project to share with you using an envelope and creating a fun crafty project to use for giving gift cards.  

Here is the project that I designed.  

Now this isn't a new technique (it's been around for several years) but I love these little envelope cards and I haven't made one in awhile. Start with a White Envelopes A2 size envelope, seal envelope and cut 1-3/4 '' off one end.   Then ink edges, stamp images and sentiment on the smaller piece.  For the sentiment and snowflakes I used CR-03800 Large Fancy Holiday Sentiments stamp set from JustRite Papercraft.

For the next step ink the edges of the larger piece from the envelope.  Then roll the envelope through a crimper.

Cut a piece of White Linen cardstock slightly smaller then the envelope.  Stamp the snowflake images and ink the edges.  Then use a piece of double stick tape to attach the gift card.  This piece will slide into the envelope and then add the topper.

Next I cut/embossed the edge of a A7 envelope flap using E8-001 Classic ScallopE8-010 Classic Decorative Inserts Two die templates from Spellbinders. Then lightly ink the edges of the envelope.  Now I have a decorative envelope that is large enough to mail the envelope gift card.

I used S4-365 2012 Create-A-Flake 4S5-117 2012 Snowflake PendantS5-121 Frosty Forms die templates to create the snowflake and then I added a Silver Snowflake Embellishment and Recollections Pearls.  For the topper I added White Mini Pom-Pom and 3/16'' Stitched Edge Reversible Blue/White Ribbon from Really Reasonable Ribbon.

Thank you so much for stopping by today!!
