Harvest Happiness Gift Card

I shared this gift card with the wives at a Geophysicist Convention.  I used a envelope, Harvest Happiness stamp set, dimensional tape, natural hemp and several inks (Honey, Brown Bag, Olive, Cocoa, and Autumn Terracotta)
  


I started with the largest stamp I was using and used Honey ink and rock and rolled it with Autumn Terracotta. I then started filling in with the other smaller stamps.  Stamping in a triangle pattern helps the stamping look more planned!

I continued stamping on both sides of the envelope until I was happy with the look!


I cut out the scalloped oval to perfectly fit my sentiment using the exclusive Art Philosophy Cricut cartridge.  I stamped the sentiment using honey and rock and rolled in Autumn Terracotta.  Rock and roll is great because it gives the images more depth and dimension!  Watch a video on Rock and Roll here!



I also cut out a tag for the scalloped oval 1/4 inch bigger than the sentiment and used dimensional tape to pop up the sentiment on the tag!



I added the Natural Hemp through the holes in the tag...you could use ribbon or floss too!


Using the bone folder to get a great crease, I folded the envelop in half.


I adhered the sentiment to the front, making sure to keep the hemp fairly even and tying it on the side in a bow!


This is what it looks like open with a gift card in it!


The fun thing about this is you can use any extra envelopes you have a minimal other supplies to make a gift card for any purpose or season just by changing the stamps and sentiments!
