Envelope Pocket Card

This card was demonstrated at one of the sessions at Convention.  It was such a great idea I had to make it for myself.

The envelope creates cute pockets for messages and more!

Here I used a glue dot to adhere a gift card to a tag.  That way when they pull the tag the get the surprise of a gift card!

So Awesome Right?  This card uses the Envelope Liner Framelits, let me show you how.

You are going to use the middle liner and Designer Paper of your choice for the small envelope on the front of the card.  Follow the template below to prep the liner.

Once you have done so, your paper will look like this.

I folded down the flap and adhered it with just a little bit of adhesive in the middle.  I didn't completely glue it down so to give the look of a flap that opens.  I then cut a banner, stamped the words I wanted and adhered it to the flap.

The card base I ran through with an Embossing Folder to give it some texture.  It is your choice if you want it to be a full card or just a front.

On the back of your mini envelope, put Dimensionals on three sides, leaving the top open.  This will give you your envelope pocket.  Note:  Make sure to put the Dimensionals all the way to the side or use the edges of the Dimensionals or your Gift Card wont fit.  (This picture, when I put it all together, the g.c. didn't fit and I had to redo it, oops!)

Adhere the envelope to the front of the card.  And then add any tags you want!

Of course you should use the largest Framelit to line your envelope to match!

Here is the same card with different Designer Paper for a birthday card.
