My Mother does not read my blog or go on Facebook so it's safe to post her card here. Her birthday is tomorrow and I wanted to make something cute to hold a gift card. I used the current sketch from the Clean and Simple blog as my inspiration.
I used a My Cute Stamps set named Konnichiwa and computer generated the sentiment using a free font I found online called Bonzai. Pattern paper is Jillibean Soup.
I also computer generated the inside and couldn't resist adding some lucky numbers since my Mom buys lottery tickets on occasion.The last lucky number (68) is my Mom's age tomorrow. I traced the gift card with a pencil and cut a couple of slits with a craft knife to hold the card in place. I put a 1/8" strip of score tape on each end of the sentiment to hold it in place.
A dot of re-positionable adhesive works well to keep the front closed and this card is 4.25 x 5.50 so it will fit perfectly in a regular A2 envelope.
I'll have a free template for that rounded front flap up on the blog soon. I've got some free stuff on my sidebar which I'll be moving to a page in the near future. Have a wonderful weekend!
