Here's a quick way to present a gift card (or any little trinket) for any occasion....
Cut off about 1" from the short end of the envelope. This will be the top of your holder. I stamped the large portion of the envelope with "French Script" by SU, using Staz-On ink.
Using a crimper on the larger piece "shrinks" it enough so the top will fit on nicely. After crimping I added bits and pieces from the December Daily kit I purchased from Scrap-Tastic.
Happy New Year to you and yours, and Happy Crafting!
