Prize #6 - a Wink of Stella, used in today's project -


I'm excited to share today's project as I just finished all of my Gift Card orders and got them out to my customers - so now I can share how I packaged them.  Below is the front of the folder they were in.  Unfortunately you can not see the beautiful glimmer on the roses in these pictures.  I added it with Wink of Stella - and they are so lovely in person.

Each gift certificate was printed and stamped to match the folder and then mounted on a piece of Mossy Meadow cardstock to give it stability.  I blocked out the name of the recipient here.  I also stamped the pocked tone on tone with Crumb Cake.
This folder was made by using 1 sheet of cardstock trimming 1.5" off of a 8.5" x 11" to make it 8.5" x 9.5" and then folding to fit the certificate and adhering.  This would also be a perfect cash presentation folder.  I adhered some of our braided twin under the front image before adhering the layers to give me twine for a closure.  See picture below.
Here is the folder closed and tied shut - along with that amazing First Frost stamp set I used to create it.  I love it so much!  And am super happy with how these turned out.
I then slid it into a stamped regular mailing envelope - where I have also blocked off the recipients name.  Those that were mailed were then sent to the recipient in a larger envelope, but fortunately I was able to hand deliver most.  Thank you to all who ordered.  Please note, gift certificates can be ordered from me at any time.  The stamping and folder designs will vary through out the year.
