I created this for a co-worker who is leaving our work because she is moving back to her hometown. She will be driving home. I did not want to give her anything bulky to take with her. I thought about a gift card, either a gas card or a Target card, so she can buy something she needs for her new home. I think the gas card will be more useful but choosing the right gas card is another challenge. I did not want to purchase a gas card that she won't be able to use on her travel. So, with the help of my two other co-workers, we pitched in some money for her.
I created this cash envelope to hold the money to give her. The paper is from October Afternoon Travel Girl. I scored and folded it to create a tall, top-folding envelope. I die cut a grey cardstock panel using Mama Elephant Peek A Frame Creative Cuts. I stamped the sentiment using Lawn Fawn Milo's ABC stamp set. I die cut a gas pump using Cricut Explore and the Cricut Design Space. I cut all the layers initially at 1" but I found it too small so I upsized the image to 1.6". I am so amazed on how the Cricut Explore was able to cut this image as small as an inch. I took a photo of the size comparison of the two different sized gas pump.
Thank you for visiting my blog. Have a blessed, brilliant and creative day!
