I don’t know about anyone else but just when I should be planning for Christmas I’m sidetracked thinking about a few December Birthdays. Friends & Family have Birthdays on the 12th, 13th 16th, and the 24th! Hope I haven’t forgotten anyone!
So I’ve turned my attention to Birthday cards this week. This week’s Free File is a Birthday card with a straight- to- the-point message: “Have a Good One”. Of course, I hope that they all do! For good measure I’ve thrown in a co-ordinating folder for a Gift Voucher.
I was going for a Masculine look, so I’ve cut my card from Kraft and Black cardstock and trimmed it with Black and White Butcher’s Twine. You could use ribbon or a strip of contrasting patterned paper instead of the twine.
There’s plenty of blank space for your message, either above or below the giftcard.
Before you cut the folder – double check the size of your giftcard. Mine was 8.5cm x 5.5 cm Gift Card. That seems to be the standard size here in Australia but I’m not sure of other countries. You may need to make an adjustment if your card is a different size.
I tied the folder with a twine bow but a contrasting Belly Band of paper or ribbon would look good too and keep it closed. 🙂
I’ve got a couple of Christmas Cards lined up for my next couple of posts so I hope you check back.
