I made this card for recent graduate. The handmade coin envelope contains a gift card to that person's favorite restaurant (Ruby Tuesday). Coin envelope is made from textured Bazzill Frosted Teal cardstock, with washi tape (from Cute Tape) added along the top and bottom flaps. Hero Arts H5261 Flourish Trio stamped along one edge in ColorBox Turquoise pigment ink.
Background is kraft cardstock. I masked the edges and then stamped Hero Arts CG119 Flourish Background on top using ColorBox Frost White pigment ink. Used my Uniball Signo opaque white pen to frame the stamped area.
Made a red tab using red cardstock. Stamped dots and “Big” sentiment from one of the stamps in Hero Arts LL229 A Great Big set using VersaMark watermark ink and then embossed with Ranger Seafoam White embossing powder.
Added silver eyelets to the coin envelope. Used Jillibean Soup red and white baker's twine to lace through the eyelets and tie in a bow. “Congrats” sentiment from Hero Arts CL371 Essential Messages and stamped using ColorBox Scarlet pigment ink.
Thanks for looking! :-)
