I spent all day Saturday at a Stampin' Up regional convention and we made six different projects. This one was my favorite. It is called the Without You Gift Card Folder. Really it is a card folder for three scallop notes cards.
One of my favorite parts of the project is using designer series paper to line the inside of the gift card envelopes. You just cut your paper to slide a little bit into the envelope, lick the seal, adhere it to the back of the paper, then trim it up even with the envelope. It is such a simple thing to do but makes the set seem extra special!
The cards are stamped using the Best Wishes & More set which all participants got to take home. We used a 1 3/4" circle punch and added one of the cute felt flowers w/ a brad.
The cards turned out beautifully and the card folder is really cute.
Supplies for this are available for purchase online at my personal Stampin' Up website. There is also a stamp sale going on right now until tomorrow. Several stamp sets are discounted 20% so check it out! Online ordering is available.
