Santa’s Sleigh Gift Enclosure Cards

SQUEE!! So cute. I saw some great little gift enclosure cards on the Stampin’ Up! OnStage online videos. Stampin’ Up! has great resources for consultants. Sara Douglas presented some enclosure cards like these made with the Pun Intended 141804. I was so inspired, I made these:
Santa's Sleigh 142057
I used Sampin’ Up! Santa’s Sleigh 142057, Cozy Critters 142214 and the Biggest Birthday Ever Bundle 142283 to make these enclosure cards. I think they are going to be perfect for Christmas time gift giving.
Santa's Sleigh 142057
Can you see how the enclosure size envelope is made from half of an A2 envelope closed up with Presents & Pinecones Designer Series Washi Tape?
Santa's Sleigh 142057
I am going to make some birthday enclosure cards. I will share them next week, maybe even with a video. These enclosure cards are fun, easy, and fast to make with Stampin’ Up! products. I hope you will give them a try.
