My grandkids have gotten older and now prefer a gift of cash instead of toys and presents. Sometimes this gift feels a little impersonal, so making a money gift envelope using your digital scrapbooking supplies is a great way to add that special touch.
Digital Scrapbooking Supplies Used:
ScrapSimple Craft Templates: Gift Card & Money Holders
Holiday Time Digital kit
Jingleberry Digital kit
For this project I’ve chosen Syndee Nuckles’ ScrapSimple Craft Templates: Gift Card & Money Holders and Keri Schueller’s Holiday Time Digital kit. Syndee’s Templates make this a quick and easy project and I’m going to show you how to get it done.
In the Gift Card Money Holder folder I opened up the file called SNU_SSCraft_GiftCrdMoneyHold-CKMoney1.png. Then I dragged in rulers along the score lines so I could see where my art needed to be positioned. I used a red digital paper and placed it below the template layer. I love this paper with quilted look!
Next I decorated the front of the envelope and added some snowflakes from the Brandy Murry’s Jingleberry Digital kit to the top flap of the envelope.
After printing it out I scored the lines and cut it out with scissors. Adorable! But… I wanted to add a little more dimension and didn’t like the stark white inside of the envelope.
I printed it out again, but before I scored and cut it I open a new psd file and dragged in this swirly cream colored paper onto it.
Then I ran my front through the printer again to print this creamy paper on the back (or what will be the inside of the envelope). I also printed out some pointsettia groups and cut one out to stick on the front of the envelope. Then I stamped and embossed some leaves, blended some color on them and attached them.
These templates are so easy to use and to change up for different looks – just drag different papers and embellishments on them and print!
I hope you enjoyed this tutorial and will make your own samples and post them to the Scrap Girls Hybrid Gallery so we can all enjoy them.
