Wedding Gift Card Holder

Hi All! Today's post is for a simple gift card holder. It is super easy to make although it took me three tries because I'm terrible at stamping straight...especially when I'm stamping directly onto the cardbase. I really need to invest in a stamp-a-majig! haha It is a tad smaller than it looks in the picture. The end measurements are around 4 x 2 3/4. It sort of floats around in the envelope, so I might make a coordinating card for it to go inside? We'll see. It's also hard to tell from the picture that there is Crystal Effects on the Champagne and bubbles. It looks so cute in person :) Also, don't mind my Costco Membership card on the inside. I wanted to show what it looked like with a gift card and sadly I didn't have any.

Stamps: To Have and to Hold, Congrats
Paper: Basic Gray, Basic Black, Whisper White
Ink: Basic Black, Basic Gray
Accessories: Eyelet Border Punch, 1 3/8 and 1 1/2 Circle Punch, Slit Punch, Creamy Caramel SU Marker, Blender Pen, Crystal Effects, Organza Ribbon

1. Score 4 x 6 1/2 piece of Basic Gray at 1 3/8 and 4. Fold on score lines.
2. Stamp sentiment in bottom left corner.
3. Use the Eyelet Punch on a piece of 4 x 3 of Whisper White and then trim to fit into the inside of the top flap. Adhere.
4. Stamp the champagne glasses and color with Creamy Caramel SU Marker. Use the Basic Gray ink pad and blender pen to create a slight shadow on the glasses. Apply Crystal Effects to colored area and let dry.
5. Punch out image with 1 3/8 circle punch. Punch out Basic Black circle with 1 1/2 circle punch. Adhere.
6. To create the band, cut an 8 inch piece of organza ribbon. Wrap around entire card and adhere with the Whisper White Circle. Punch another Basic Black circle and adhere so that the ribbon is sandwiched between the circles.
7. Punch two slits in the center panel about 1/4 inch in on either side for gift card.
