I had the absolute honour and privilege of attending a friend’s wedding at the weekend. I made them a card which I’ll share with you later but I also gave them a cash gift in this handmade envelope…
I used Shimmery White card for my base and for the panel on the front that I embossed with the Petal Burst folder.
I love this subtle shimmer, it looks a little more sophisticated than glitter don’t you think?
I stamped the Happy Wedding Day sentiment from the Beautiful Bouquet stamp set in Versamark on more Shimmery White card and sprinkled Gold Stampin’ Emboss powder over it then heat set it. I cut it out using one of the Stitched Shapes dies. I added that to a layer of Very Vanilla card cut using one of the Layering Circles dies. I then added that to a gold foil doily. I cut some leaves from Gold Foil using the Bouquet Bunch Framelits.
Before I added the sentiment I glued a length of Gold Metallic Edged ribbon to the front panel, so that it wouldn’t come off. The doily sits over the glued part so you don’t see the glue either.
I also heat embossed the message inside the envelope using Gold Stampin’ Emboss powder. This stamp is from the Beautiful Bouquet set too.
Now all that was needed was to pop in the money and tie the ribbon.
Giving cash as a gift may seem like the easy option so I reckon its worth making a bit more effort to make it seem more special and personal. Handmade is best for that!
