CASEing my friend Missi Roeber...Raining Flowers Stampin' Up! Set Crimped Pocket Card

This card uses an envelope to create a pocket or gift card holder card.  It is so easy to make a quick card this way.  My friend Missi gave us Magnets at convention in a similar holder, and I thought it would be perfect to show for class.  Our smooth Stampin' Up! envelopes work much better than store-purchased envelopes when you are stamping on them. I'm usually not that adament, but it really matters when you are stamping on the envelope.
First you seal the envelope. Then, you cut the envelope at 4-1/2 inches on the long side.  Next, stamp your image or images or scene on the large portion of the envelope.  Then run just that piece through your crimper.  Following Missi's lead, I added a 1/4 inch strip of designer series paper (I used the hostess paper Cheerful Treat.)  I used the stamp set we were given at Convention, Raining Flowers and created a little flower for the topper much like Missi did though she used a different set.  Add an insert (you can use a punch to create a slot for a gift card) so that you can sign your card. The sentiment is from the new Perfect Pairs set.

The topper will go all the way on, but you do have to take a minute and work it down over the crimped portion carefully.  My customers also asked about mailing it.....yes the top is still the size of an would not fit in the same size envelope. I imagined one make take this card to a birthday party.
