Last week, after seeing this card by Sharon, I immediately went to my craft room and made my own Valentine's version for my mother.
Here is a picture of it closed:
Here is an open view, note the gift card pocket:
This is how it looks once the gift card is removed:
And, lastly, a picture of the card closed with the gift card removed:
I came up with the neatest idea. Well, maybe all of you have already thought of it and used it, but it was a new lightbulb that went on for me! As I am bow challenged, I was having great difficulty tying the ribbon nicely to hold the card closed. So, finally, instead of tying the two pieces of ribbon into a bow, I used velcro to hold the ribbon together and glue dots to attach the bow. The bow looks (nearly) perfect and doesn't have to be re-tied each time the card is opened.
Supplies used: Pretty in Pink, Red Glimmer, and Very Vanilla card stock, Sending Love Specialty DSP (retired), Pretty in Pink satin ribbon, Well Scripted and Yummy stamp sets (both retired).
Thanks for stopping by.
