Envelope Gift Card Holder

Hey guys, hope you're enjoying your Sunday.  Today I'd like to share an envelope gift card holder I made for my mother-in-law's birthday.  I was so inspired by Bona of livelovescrap on YouTube, that I just had to try and make one.  You can check out Bona's YouTube videos here.  She does amazing work and I love it! 

This time, to make my envelope, I used the MS Scoreboard and the envelope attachment, instead of using my WRMK Envelope Punch Board.  This was the first time I made an envelope using the scoreboard and it was surprisingly simple.  So if you haven't tried making envelopes with your MS scoreboard, I highly recommend you try it out.

Here's my envelope gift card holder:  I used MIYAKO from Sister Stamps.  I believe she was one of the releases for Valentine's Day a while back.  Please correct me if I'm wrong!  I also used some washi paper (not washi tape), some lace, hydrangea flowers and some heart brads.  I colored Miyako with my Copics and cut her out.  The back of the envelope is plain and I used a Velcro circle for the closure.  The bottom photo shows the inside of the envelope.

As you can see, it's a very simple project, and you can use it for any occasion.  You can bet that I'll be creating these for Christmas!  Anyhoo, thanks for stopping by and I hope you're staying cool.  As I write this, I feel like I'm either getting heat stroke or am coming down with something.  Until next time, take care.
