Quick, easy and fabulous gift ca


Hey yall, it's Tangii here with today's post and I hope you are all having a wonderful weekend!  Today I have a fabulous way to give a gift card!  First let me start by saying that this pocket card is NOT my brainchild, I made it with some friends, but I don't know where she got the idea.  Ok, back to the fun stuff...  I started off with an envelope (standard card size), a colored envie works great, but I didn't have any.  Seal the envelope and then standing it tall-wise, cut off about 1 1/4" of it (now this is the "lid").  Run the larger piece through a crimper, make sure you are putting it through in the correct direction (sideways)... this "shrinks" the larger piece so the lid fits perfectly over it :)  Brilliant!  Since my envelope started off white, I used my airbrush and B00 Copic marker to give it a "cloudy" look.
To decorate my pocket I used this Smiling Sun and my sentiment, Walk on Sunshine... both are from QKR Stampede :)  I colored Mr. Smiling Sun with Copics and added some sparkle with a Gold Spica Glitter pen.  A dab of Black Glaze pen is perfect for his eyes!  For the inside I added a little border strip and only adhered it on the bottom and sides, it holds the giftcard in perfectly!
Voila!  Quick and easy gift card holder!!  Hope you enjoyed today's post, hope to see you again soon.
