Thanks a latte!!

I needed to make a couple of thank you cards for friends this week, and wanted to include some gift cards, so I inked up a fave old set (font of you) and whipped up these babies.

I used a pattern my old SU downline (the fabulous Heather Summers) had shared on her blog many moons ago. Basically, cut a 5x11" strip of paper and score at 3.5", 5.5" & 7.5". fold so the paper makes a W pattern, then run through the Big Shot using the Top Note die, making sure to not cut through the folded edge. Then attach to a piece of 4.25x5.5 card stock, and you're almost done! Because the paper that goes through the Big Shot is pretty thick, there ends up being a fold of sorts on the 'front' of the die cut piece. Enter scallop circle :P A quick stamp & some sponging around the edges, et voilĂ ! I made sure to attach a piece from my ribbon stash (!!) running under & over the die cut before I attached everything.
I then punched a hole in the scallop to thread the ribbon through so it could be tied closed. Inside, I used the scallop edge punch to cut through the centre fold so that the gift card would stay. A piece of red tape was used to hold the two small inner pieces together. And there you have it.
