I don't know about you, but I'm a terrible gift giver. Absolutely terrible! Gift cards are my go-to gifts during the Holidays, so I went back to some older i-crafter products to make a cute and simple gift card envelope!
I used the Animalopes Die Set released at the beginning of this year to create my gift card envelope. The Animalopes Die Set can create a BUNCH of cute little animal envelopes - but the main die that cuts the mini envelope can be used for more than just cute critters! It's perfectly sized for gift cards or even little notes! I die cut the envelope and flap from a piece of plaid patterned paper, folded up the envelope, and glued the flaps down. It took me about a minute from start to finish!
I wanted to keep the gift card envelope simple, but give it a punch of classic Christmas. I used the Tunnel Card Santa Add-On Die Set to cut the sentiment from green shimmer cardstock and Santa and his reindeer from red shimmer cardstock. I thought they got a bit lost against the plaid, so I glued them to a piece of vellum and used my scissors to "bubble cut" around the elements.
