Hello. It’s Gaylynn here. For Technique Time at Unity Stamp Company, I am sharing my coffee or tea themed mug gift card holder, an interactive card that doubles as a gift surprise. This also has touches of gold watercolor added.
This is a great way to send a card to someone with a surprise inside. The card front flips open to reveal a gift card or money tucked inside. Added gold watercolor provides shimmer to the card.
Sentiment: It’s a mug hug.
Here are helpful tips for creating this gift card holder greeting card. To begin, stamp the mug and the sentiment onto watercolor paper. Also, I decided to stamp with embossing ink and heat emboss in gold, but stamping alone works also. Next, trim or die-cut the card layers and a container for the gift card or money. Then, add watercolor to the mug and to the top portion of the holder section. Once dry, adhere the mug to the front flap of the gift card holder. Finally, layer everything onto the card front with extra accents added.
And, this is another look at my gift card holder greeting card.
Here is my video tutorial for this project. It will detail the full process.
