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 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!

  1. WOWSERS ... love this. It's a great way to get out almost any stamp set and some colors that you've wanted to work with together and play. I have to go now so I can try this myself : )

  2. Great idea. I never know what to do with gift cards, so this is a card and a g.c. holder in one. Love it!
