Quick Gift Card Holder

Hi, Lois here for my Monday post.  The CottageCutz design team is going to pull out some older dies during the month of July and show them off.  I used the Filigree Daisy Envelope to make a quick gift card holder, adding one of the Expressions Plus sentiments.

I cut the envelope from a piece of purple cardstock.

The base of the card is just a 5 1/2" x 8 1/2" piece of purple cardstock and a 4" x 5 1/4" piece of patterned paper.

After folding on all of the score lines on the envelope, I added some narrow Scor-Tape to the side tabs.

I then cut the sentiment twice -- once in purple and once in shimmery white.  I had run the scraps of cardstock through my Xyron machine prior to cutting so that I could adhere them easily.

I used Scor-Tape on the back of the envelope for good adhesion to the card.

I adhered the envelope at the bottom of the card and layered the two sentiments at the top -- on an angle.

To hold the flap closed, I cut a strip of Velcro . . . 

. . . and placed it behind the daisy.  I closed the flap to place the second piece on the envelope.  I trimmed the portion that was above the opening.

I then added a few sequins and inserted the gift card.

Here again is my completed card.

I would encourage you to look through the CottageCutz website and see what you may have missed.
