So first we will start with the name- it is actually two cards in one with an envelope for a gift card to be placed inside; gate fold and an A2 card. Dimensions, photos with the steps of the process to follow. The supplies; will discuss as we go along... there are many things going on at once, hope you are a multi tasker, so each section will have supply list.

Envelope Gift Card= 5 ¾” x 5 ¾” on the envelope cutter [SU no longer sells their version, so any one will do, you just need to make sure you use the measurements mentioned here to fit inside the A2 base]

Trim- 12" (more if you want to tie a bow)

embellishments


We will need enough basic white cardstock (or whatever color you are choosing to be your bases 1 & 2 )


STEP 1-

Take one Basic White cardstock sheet and make a Gate fold is a 5 ½” x 8 ½”. Long side[ 8 ½” side] make a pencil mark at 4 ¼”. Then, take each side and have them meet in the center at the 4 ¼” mark. Set aside.



STEP 2-

Next, you will need Designer Series Paper (DSP) {here I chose the Paper Blooms from our latest Sale-a-bration-no longer available unfortunately.

Utilizing both sides of a one sheet 12" x 12" }

2 pieces 2 ¼” x 6”

I took the Rectangle Scallop die from the stitched so sweetly die set. Cut off the scallop section and adhered the trim to the bottom of both pieces 2 ¼” x 6” (DSP).

Once that is completed, take one piece and cut (3) 2” pieces. Take the second piece and cut (1) 2” piece and keep the leftover 4” piece. Get ready to glue!

STEP 3-

Place the Pattern 2 pieces on the front of the folded cardstock first with Liquid Glue then the Pattern 1 /scalloped pieces on top. Do the same to the inside flaps-

*this is what you should end up with--> click on slide show to get a clearer image

Now this is where it may get a little tricky!


STEP 4-

Take the 4” x 11” piece of Basic White Cardstock and score the 11” side at 5 ½”. (in half)

Adhere to the inside of the Gate Fold.

Take that remaining 4” piece of scalloped DSP and place it on the top as shown in photo below making sure that the scallop will line up with the inside ones- glue her down.



STEP 5-

Choose a sentiment-- (who and what is the card for?)

decorate-- used 'Pierced Blooms' bundle for this one!


I sewed the inside circles of the blooms-




STEP 6-

Now use your envelope maker (if not already done so) and make the envelope using the measurements from the beginning.. and then fold the envelope at the creases, use tear & tape to the seal the insides of the envelope.

Glue on the envelope to make sure it will stay.. and not the tear and tape or your Stampin Seal+


STEP 7-

Take that vellum strip and start decorating it. Use a 2" circle as your glue base to hold all your goodies. Wrap your trim that you chose, I used denim, around the vellum and adhere in the center of the wrap. I made sure that all the ends wound up in the center to be covered by our circle of goodies!

**there is so much more that can be done here to this wrap that I did not have a chance to do such as a tag, sentiment, sequins, embellishments.. the list goes on!!**

I did sew the centers of my flowers though ...............................
