Baby Gift Card...

One of my husband's employee's is coming back from maternity leave, so he and his team got her a gift card to welcome her back. Well...he went to the store to get it and then was just going to take it to her in the little cheap paper envelope that comes with it. So OF COURSE I had to step in and let him know that just wouldn't cut it . :) I took it down to my stamp room and came back with something just a bit more fun. :)

I think this looks a little better, right?! :) I just took a 12x12 sheet of Designer Series Paper (I LOVE this paper so much...even though it's retired. I thought it was the perfect paper to use for this project as well.) Then I made an origami cup. These are so easy to do, I LOVE doing them. Let me know if you don't know how and I would be happy to do a tutorial if that would help.
Then I just put the gift card in a cello and tied it with ribbon. Then insert it in to the pouch and you are done! So much better than the tiny little cheap envelope that came with it. :)

Here is a close-up of the scallop and envelope. Both the scallop and the circle are from dies with my Big Shot, and I added some faux stitching around the circle and than carried that to the elephant. I stamped the elephant twice...one on the circle and then one on a scrap piece of white that I cut out and put up on dimensionals.
Hope you enjoy! Thanks for visiting!
