Gift Card Card!

This is a fun card that holds a gift card. The base of the card is an envelope. Here is a design using the CTMH Stamp Set Tulip and papers from the Wings paper pack. The shading technique on the tulip is created by applying a light shade of ink to the stamp and then add a darker ink directly to the stamp using a sponge dauber. This example used blush and vinyard berry inks for the flower and sweat leaf and olive for the stem/leaves. Card inside with flap closed: Card inside with flap open:
