25th (Silver) Wedding Anniversary Gift Certificate/Cash Envelope

I used the Dutch Doobadoo Envelope template because the size of the envelope (86 x 175mm) suited the purpose perfectly. The paper is silver (looks kind of goldish in this picture, but that’s the lighting, sorry :)

The internal tag is just a few millimeters narrower and shorter. The little envelope on the tag is Marianne Design Collectables col 1337. It creates a pocket to hold a gift certificate or some cash.

To make both sides of the tag hole look neat follow the instructions here.

I used:

  • Dutch Doobadoo 470.713.003 Envelope Stencil
  • Marianne Design Collectables col 1337 Envelope
  • Marianne Design Creatables lr0159 Hearts
  • Marianne Design Creatables Lr0272  Anja`S Vintage Frame
  • Joy!Crafts Stencil Vintage Flourishes – Corner 6003/0015
  • Darice 1218-69 Embossing Folder, Circle Interlock Design – the internal surface of the small envelope is embossed
PS Detail: 
All but one decorative elements are die cut, not embossed. It was a pain to glue them neatly :) I used wet glue because I know certain people tend to keep certain gifts for sweet memories of the events forever, however the glue of double-sided tapes or such-like adhesives may dry out with time and the whole thing will literally fall apart. Sometimes within a year. Probably there are brands that are more reliable, but this was not the occasion for me to try it out.If you know for sure that your card won’t have to be kept forever, use double-sided tape or double-sided sheets instead of wet glue for intricate dies or smaller pieces like individual letters etc.
