My favorite printer brand for many years has been HP. I also use their ink supply service where I pay a monthly fee and they send me ink cartridges as needed. It comes out to be a lot less money this way. The HP Envy Inspire is a great-priced machine that will produce beautiful prints.

Freebie Friday – Gift Card Envelopes

Freebie Friday this week is a set of gift card sized envelopes and embellishment seals. #printable #freebie

These spring-themed gift card envelopes and embellishment seals can make a basic gift card extra special. Or you could use them as envelopes and pockets for crafting. Consider using them for your junk journals, glue books, scrapbooks, and more.

Just print, cut, and fold on the lightly colored lines. Then glue the flaps. You can add one of the color-coordinated embellishments as a seal for the envelope.

pop tone card stock

I used Pop-Tone in Spearmint for my project. As of this posting, this pack isn’t currently available but no worries, you can still get Spearmint in a variety pack of Pop-Tone. Pop-Tone colors come in a variety of different sizes and invitations as well as envelopes.

I cut the file on a Cricut Maker. As a reminder, set the red lines to score and load your scoring tool before setting the file to cut.

Here is the card stock cut and scored ready for folding. I used a bit of double-stick tape to seal the sides.

The view from the side shows the depth of the box envelope.


The close-up view shows how the envelope overlaps on the front as well as showing the depth from a different angle. The sticker decoration I used to finish the envelope was one I bought at the Dollar Tree. I like how the colors of the sticker coordinate with the spearmint pop-tone cardstock as well as having a bit of depth too.
