Colorful Vellum Gift Card Envelopes

April 10, 2017

Hi there! Today I am on the Hero Arts blog using their awesome products and showing how to create gift card envelopes to spice up a gift card and make a fun and creative gift! This blog post is going to go show some examples, a full supplies list, and video (for more detailed information, head to the Hero Arts blog).

For all of the gift card envelopes, I used the Envelope Fancy die which is amazing for creating these super fast! I also stamped and colored images on top using Copic Markers and the adorable Woof and Purr stamp sets.

For the first two examples, I used regular cardstock and blended Hero Arts Hybrid ink pads to get a really bright blended effect.

On the last two envelopes, I blended the Hybrid inks onto vellum to get a nice soft effect over the gift cards. These inks are awesome for surfaces like vellum because they dry way faster and better than regular inks.

Enjoy the video!

    Very nice gift card holders. I love the idea of the vellum. Thanks for sharing these with us. And by the way, I’m a dog fan too, and allergic to cats too.
