Hmmmm, I wonder what's in here?




Rudy the Envelope Gift Card Holder
Hello All! 

Welcome to to the weekly reminder post of the current Challenge going on right now over at All the Scraps, Anything but a Card!  I got really lucky, my S.U. demonstrator had one of these fabulous envelope gift card holders for our monthly project.  Talk about timing!  lol.  I knew my little Rudy would work perfectly on this.  You start with a "Medium" envelope ( 5-3/4 X 4-3/8), fold the outside edges in towards the center and crease with your bone folder.  Snip off the outside of the top portion (where the gumminess is).   Add some ribbon and adhere it to the front of the folded up envelope so that it rest and come around just right under the flap (top gummy portion).  The base that the envelope will adhere to is 4-3/4 X 3-1/4.  The smaller base is 3-1/4 X 2-1/4 and the top portion of that adheres to the top folded over, (so that it will open.)  I hope between the pictures and the description, this makes sense! lol.  Next you can added designer paper and anything else you want, just remember that the ribbon is going to go over the image.  I had this major brain storm that Rudy would be scratching his head and wondering, "hmmm, I wonder what's in here?" 

I used some Martha Stewart snowflake punches in the corners with some bling in the center, I used Echo Park - Winter Park 6X6 paper, some S.U. ribbon and colored Rudy up with my Copic Markers: YG95, YG93, BG10, E43, E42, E41, E00, E000, E000, E21, E93, R59,  R39, R37. 

I hope you have a fabulous day and I cannot wait to see your uploads to the this challenge.  Remember, I totally have to case something from someone Else's 3D project the next time we have this challenge, so don't let me down, lol. 

Thanks for Looking and for your kind Comments.
