I have very fond memories of when I was a child and some (sadly unremembered) wealthy benefactor actually gave me five pounds as a gift on one of my birthdays, the same birthday I received 13 books as presents! What a year! Some of the money was required to be placed in my bank account but I remember so clearly the power of having a purse containing actual money and being able to shop for myself!
I never seem to have the right card to use to send off a gift card, although I have tried several formats and also had success with this wedding card...I usually just tuck it inside the accompanying card. However, this tutorial seems to be a nice alternative. The pocket at the centre of the card is just a comfortable fit for a gift card, and while smallish, is rather cute. Being such a small size meant that I was able to make this one entirely from scraps of kraft card stock and patterned paper left over from other projects.
I made the tags by gluing the leftover kraft card stock between two layers of patterned paper, the floral and the lined ledger paper...when dry I die cut it out using TH labels dies. It make a lovely weight almost like purchased chipboard embellishments, with the edges rounded by the die. I will definitely try this trick again!
Now I need to make some more with a masculine and ankle biter focus, these will be sure to come in useful around Christmas time when we seem to have a bit of a cluster of birthdays as well as the usual festivities.
That's it, bye for now...
