Baby shower gift card

One of the supervisor's at work is pregnant with her first child and one of the cards that I made in the last two weeks was a card for her baby shower.

My apologies for the interesting photo at the left. There's an orange shadow just to the right of the little envelope on the front of the card. It definitely WASN'T there in real life. (This card isn't my best work, but I definitely did NOT give a card with that orange on it!!!)

The envelope was made from a template found at this website. The template was enlarged 165% from the original template, so as to be large enough to hold a plastic credit card/gift card.

The envelope was cut from designer paper, assembled with double-sided tape and decorated with the sheer polka-dot ribbon running down the main seam. Just enough of the tape was left uncovered under the top flap of the envelope to slightly hold the flap down.

To make the card background the butterfly was stamped multiple times on the cardstock with Versamark and once with cranberry ink. The welcome baby sentiment was also stamped with the cranberry ink. (Don't look too carefully; it was not my best work stamping letters.)

Materials: cardstock (Bazzill); designer paper (Die Cuts with a View); butterfly stamp (Stampendous), letter stamps (Studio G); ink: watermark (Versamark), cranberry (Colorbox); adhesive (Pioneer mounting tape).

Thanks for looking.
