Crate Paper Emmas Shoppe Matchbook Tag/Gift Card Holder

Hello Friends, Thanks you so much for taking the time to check out my posting today.  I hope you got a 'smile' out of something you saw or got some inspiration to go do something crafty. 

Hi everyone! It's Lenae here from SugarGem with a fun little card.
This card was in the card of the week challenge for July 10. I loved it so much I made it for my Pumpkin Spice Design Team project this week. I used Crate Papers Emmas Shoppe Collection which is one of my faves! It is so girly and shabby chic! The paper if you haven't actually seen it or felt it in person is divine! It has the most wonderful weight and texture almost like a linen feel. It is gorgeous.

After watching the video I knew I didn't have all the proper tools. I didn't have the envelope pocket she uses in the Youtube video so I made one in SCAL just for us here and a free shape label so now you can make one too!

Itty Bitty Tip!-When assembling my pocket I recommend gluing the tabs to the outside of the paper so that the gift card tag will slide in and out easily! Plus I find rounding the corners of the tag help.

For adhering the gift card I like to use Zip Dry glue. It works perfectly! You can find it at Pumpkin Spice right here!

Here is the Youtube tutorial on making this fun little card!

Secret little tip -If you do not have SCAL or a cutter to cut SVG's a little trick I learned is to download the free Inkscape program, download my file, print my file out onto Emmas Shoppe paper then cut by hand! Super Easy!

Hope you enjoy!
If I can inspire just one person today I have done my job!
XOXO SugarGem
