Gift Card Holder

Good morning everyone.  Today I have this really cute gift card holder that I found instructions for online.  I had to make mine a bit wider because my envelopes were a bit wider than the one in the instructions.  This was fairly easy to construct, however it took me SEVERAL hours to figure out how I wanted to decorate it.  I decided to go with more of a glamorous look so that I could give it to my sister-in-law for her birthday.

I decided to keep the front cover fairly simple.  I used JustRite Times Roman 95 point font along with a Damask border to personalize this with her monogram.  It is stamped with Memento Summer Sky and diecut with Spellbinders Classic Circles & Petite Scallop Circles (a "JustRite" match for a JustRite monogram).

Along the left side of the cover, I chose the Spellbinders Fleur De Lis Borderabilities and added Kaiser pearls.

Here is a photo showing the front cover and part of the inside of the card.

This is a photo showing the entire inside of the card. 

On the left side, I used the "Baroque Nested Frames" set, stamped with Memento Summer Sky.  This set comes with 2 different nested frames along with a sentiment.  I stamped the larger frame and applied it vertically.  Then I stamped the smaller frame and applied it horizontally.  The sentiment is stamped with Memento Rich Cocoa and diecut with Spellbinders Fancy Tags.  Along the top and bottom edge, I diecut a border using the Spellbinders Fleur De Lis Borderabilities and added more Kaiser pearls.

On the right side I made 3 gift card holders using my Cricut Expression along with the Wild Card Cartridge cut at size 4 1/2".  Since this is for my sister-in-law and I had 3 spaces to fill, I decided to add the letters    "S" "I" "S" onto the gift card envelopes using the new Myriad Pro 50 point font and Damask border.  Each stamped with Memento Summer Sky, diecut with Spellbinders Nestabilities Classic Circles and Petite Scallop Circles.  I also used individual pieces of the Spellbinders Fleur De Lis Border to add on each side of the letter.

 Here is a closer look at the left side of the gift card holder.
