Gift Card or Money Holder

Greeting Card Kids


Can you tell which are my favorite toys to play with this season? Greeting Card Kids, the Northern Flurries embossing folder, and the colors blue and red. I can’t stop myself!


This is a gift so many of us give during the holidays and there are so many different ways to present them. I wanted to incorporate a gift card or money holder into a card. I also wanted to make one that would be very quick to mass produce if necessary, which always brings the Big Shot to mind for me. This is what I came up with.


The image was the only thing that was a little time consuming on this card, but it really didn’t take that long. I used my quick watercolor technique. My New Year’s resolution is to learn how to use my new camera and all the technology to edit and upload videos, so hopefully that will happen in the first week or so of January! I think I’ll make that technique the first video. It is really simple and just uses the markers and aqua painter.

I spritzed the card using the Silver Foil Smooch Spritz. I love the overall shimmery look it creates on the card stock. Very pretty. I can never do justice to the shimmer or bling in my photo’s.


Gift card


I decided that our scallop envelope would be the perfect gift card or money holder. So easy! I created the little pocket and then attached a piece of lace to the back of the envelope with glue dots. Then I just laid the card in the envelope and tied it into place. The sentiment looks crooked in this photo, but really the envelope is placed on a slant on the inside of the card.
