Heartfelt Creations

Today on the Heartfelt Creations blog are two more of my projects that I submitted for the Finalist round of the Design Team. 

The first projects is a gift card holder that is made out of an A2 envelop.  I learned how to make this from Dionne who teaches Copics Club classes at the scrapbook store More Memories in New Paris, IN, my hometown.

  • Spellbinders:    Classic Ovals, Labels 10
  • Paper:    A2 Envelop, Cryogen White, Bazzill, K&Co

To make gift card holder take an A2 envelope and score the envelop in half and cut the flap in half.  Glue down the left side.  The right side is the pocket for the gift card.  Distress edges (including center) with Ranger Distress Ink – Old Paper.  Add score tape across the front of the envelope and attach a piece of ribbon to close the gift card holder.  Cut 3 pieces of paper 4” x 2 ¾” (test cut one piece and check size).  Use patterned paper or matte several layers of paper as desired.  Cut to size the panel that will go on the gift card pouch and then punch a half circle on that panel.  This will make it easier to remove the gift card.  Make a flap to fit, tapering the edges and attach to envelop flap.  Attach all panels and add brad to flap.  Make hole in gift card panel and pull a piece of twine through the hole, knotting it inside the pouch.  On Cryogen White paper stamp the mountain scene. Color with Copics and then cut out scene into a 4” x 2 ½” rectangle.  With distressing tool, distress edges and then with Ranger Distress Ink – Old Paper, distress edges with ink.  Attach colored mountain scene to front of gift card holder with double sided foam tape.  On Cryogen White paper stamp sentiment from Hydrangea/Posy Branch set on oval cut out from Spellbinders and distress edges with Ranger Distress Ink – Old Paper.  Out of Brown paper cut coordinating Spellbinder Label 10.  Attach to inside of card holder.  Insert gift card or money and use outside ribbon to tie card closed.

My second project I am sharing today is a pop up card that folds flat for mailing.  The picture really doesn't do this card justice.  It is much more stunning in real life - I wish everyone could see it in person!  I even added clear cardstock in between the window frames to make it look like there is glass in the window.
