Last year I shared a project that I made using open ended envelopes to create a gift card holder. I have since ran out of the small kraft open ended envelopes that Stampin' Up! sold and they no longer sell them - they do sell them in white, but I am kinda partial to kraft...!
I made a trip down to the Paper Source in Minneapolis this past spring and they had these khaki colored open ended envelopes. I picked up a package and made a bit bigger, flipped to the side version of the gift card holder using the Little Forest Friends set by My Cute Stamps. I will definitely be heading back to Paper Source for more envelopes...
This is so very easy to make. Just fold the bottom of the envelope up to the top, just below the crease in the envelope flap. I covered the flap on both sides with Bitty Dot patterned paper from Papertrey Ink.
The ribbon is Melon Berry saddle stitch by Papertrey, the images are colored with Copics and polka dotted with a white Inksentials pen, the border punch & circle punch are by EK Success, and the scallop circle punch is by Marvy.
You could tuck a gift card into the envelope or just a simple note card to write a heartfelt message on.
So cute! I think one of my favorite color combinations lately is Melon Berry and Spring Moss - it's sure been showing up a lot on my projects!
Thanks for stopping by today - I will have another My Cute Stamps project tomorrow and then the Papertrey Ink design team challenge on July 1!
