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.
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!
