Simple Saturday Gift Card Idea

For my simple Saturday project, I wanted to share a gift card envelope I created using the Stampin’ Up! Gift Card Envelope & Trims Thinlits Dies and my Big Shot Die-Cutting Machine.  They are so easy to make and will get a workout for this holiday season!

I ultimately flipped the flap opening to the front so it’s easier to open.  I’m sure you get the idea 🙂   Adhering the gift card to a larger card (standard 4 1/4″ x 5 1/2″) allows the opportunity to write a personal message on the inside.

In the process of producing this card, I used the Stampin’ Up! Precision Base Plate to die cut “thanks” (Greetings Thinlits Dies) in Silver Foil.

When I cropped “thanks” with the Precision Base Plate (the lower example above), the little “bumps” from the die disappear due to a bit of give the plate provides.  Please note the Precision Base Plate is specifically designed for intricate thinlits dies, not all die cutting.

If you would like to know more about the Precision Base Plate, I recommend you watch these helpful Stampin’ Up! videos:

I love hearing from you!  Please leave me your questions or comments about the project for today.

    I love this card! You have the best card ideas. 🙂

  5. This is darling, I love the classic black and white with a pop of red. I’m definitely “borrowing” the adhering to a standard sized card idea. I think it’s a great way to send a personalized message with a gift card.
