Christmas Countdown #Wk 9 of 12 - Elfie Gift Card and Envelop

The gift cards from retail outlets are usually credit card size, so it won't surprise you to know that you can easily make a gift card envelop out of a 6" x 6" (15.2 cm x 15.2 cm) piece of Designer Series Paper (DSP for short).

I took my inspiration for the envelop from the Autumn/Winter catalogue and built a gift card around it and it's funny how one thing can lead to another, and hence this little gift card holder was "born" which would fit inside the bespoke envelop!  The cutting and scoring guides are listed below.  Click play on the video which will better explain all the steps.





The Whisper White insert has a section which has been punched out with the classic label punch so that you can insert a gift card inside.
