Two Cards for Gift Giving

Two Cards for Gift Giving

The first card is for giving restaurant gift cards or cash for meals.

My kids often opt for take-out instead of cooking for themselves (some more than others!), so I made “Take-out Kits” for each of them as part of their Christmas gift this year. This card was part of the the “kit.”

The chef is from the “Recipe for Happiness” stamp set by My Favorite Things. He was stamped with Gina K Designs black amalgam ink and colored with Copic Markers (C0, C1, C2, C3, C5, C7, E13, E21, E25, E27, E29, E41, E42, E43, E50, R89, and a colorless blender).

The text was computer generated.

The A2 card base has a pocket inside to include restaurant gift cards or cash for meals. To make it, I started with a 5 1/2 x 11 inch panel and scored it at 4 1/4 and 8 1/2. That left the 2 1/2 inch portion to create the pocket.

The insulated bags would also be good for groceries. The cutlery could be kept in their desks at work, and the “meal decision dice” were just silly!


The second card is for gifting an Uber gift card.

The die cut is from a Silhouette cut file called “Santa’s Sleigh” (design # 336564) by Simply Sweet Cut Files. It was cut from Bazzill “Pomegranate Splash” card stock and embossed with the SU “Subtle” embossing folder.

The background panel was debossed with the Darice “Snowflake Swirl” embossing folder. I used the debossed side so there’d be more surface area on which to adhere the die cut. The greeting was computer generated.

This one also has a pocket (or flap) to hold the gift card.

Thanks for checking out my card projects!
