Gift Card Envelope

I just received a Sizzix template for gift card envelopes from Stampin' Up. It cuts and scores the folds. It is just easier to give gift cards to my kids. And the grands are getting old enough they like to shop for themselves.
 I tried the sketch from Tuesday Morning Sketches to see if it would work on the smaller size. I love how it turned out. So this is a good way to dress up those gift cards.
The DP, stamps and tree punch are from SU. The size of that sentiment in the Festival of Trees set works well with small banners. I used Gorgeous Grunge from SU to stamp the white "snowflakes" in the background. I put a matching white button on the back flap, thinking I will close this with a glue dot after the card is inserted. I am experimenting with ways to keep the envelope closed without gluing in place. Any suggestions?
Here is the sketch

Here are a couple more of the gift card envelopes. The one on the right has a belly band ribbon that can be slipped off and back on after inserting the card.


  1. I'm giving more gift cards these days, too, and can always use some new ideas for gift card holders. Thanks for the inspiration!

  2. Very cute gift card holder, and I love the papers and colours you used. Thank you for joining us for Tuesday Morning Sketches this week

  3. These are all beautiful, Donna!! This was a perfect sketch to make in a mini size! (Maybe try repositionable adhesive for the envie?)
    Thanks for playing along this week at TMS!!
