MCT Totally Treats Tuesday: Gift Card Letter

by Veronica

This year, so many of our nieces and nephews have requested gift cards for Christmas. They may not be as exciting for me to buy, but they don't have to be boring to wrap!

Our nephew, Chris, turned 16 this year and bought his first car. Since he doesn't yet have a job, gas money can be a touchy situation. Enter the BP gas card!


Now, let's be honest: a 16-year-old boy isn't going to be impressed with my crafty wrapping of his gift card. So I kept it simple and used the Scallop Stitched Envelope as 'real mail' and decorated it using the Build A Postcard + Postcard Add-Ons stamp sets.

Did you know that the 3x4 Journal Die fits PERFECTLY inside the Scallop Stitched Envelope?!?!?! 

Awesome.

Check out Emma's blog today to see what the other designers created for Totally Treats Tuesday! And meet me back here tomorrow for the first day of SNEAKS for the 28th Edition!

I hope you were inspired!
