Default gift card enclosure cards

Please help. I know I have seen some clever ideas for enclosing gift cards but I've searched the gallery and forums and can't seem to find them. I'm helping my SIL who is a Real Estate Agent. She sends a thank you card with a gift card upon closing of a client's home. We're trying to come up with something clever/unique for her business (and I'm trying to lure her into the stamping world so I can have someone to "play" with!!).

Any suggestions/photos/links would be greatly appreciated!!

Thank you!

Here's one I've cased often. Wish I could give credit to the original artist, but I downloaded it to my computer without noting the username

I've only ever made one card that had a gift card in it, it was a pocket card. I put the gift card on the tag part that comes out of the pocket.
I took my blade off my paper trimmer and made 2 slits diagonally across from each other to slip the gift card into.

HTH.

Default Template at Stamper's Sampler

"Stamper's Sampler" has a clever template. It's sort of a double pocket -- shaped like a tag. I either put a message or a bookmark in the second pocket.

Default gift enclosures

I have used a 2x3 card made by http:www.splitcoaststampers.com/go/malindamartin as an inspiration to make many other enclosures. I will try to get my examples downloaded today but in the meantime check out the above. I believe it is called "I'm so glad" in her gallery.

Thanks for all the great ideas, I knew you gals could help! We're trying to incorporatae a gift card and her business card so the Stampington idea might just do the trick. She could include both and still have room for a gratitude sentiment and note. I'm also thinking about a pocket card but wondering how much is "too much" in the pocket? I'm very open to ideas and suggestions.

Thank you!!

I thought this was a cool format. Shelli Gardner demo'd in on a "Greetings from DIY" episode. It is a standard card with a vellum envelope/pocket on the inside - and it incorporates that into the design. Of course, you'd need a different stamp for your purpose.

You could put the business card on the front of the card (the pocket) and the giftcard on the tag part that goes in the pocket. Or vice versa.
You'd have room for a sentiment and either the business card or the gift card on the tag.

Here's an idea. Decorate/stamp a business size (#10) envelope. Once you're done, turn it so the side with the flap is face-up and the flap is up. Then fold the two ends to the middle until they meet. Glue or tape them down on the bottom and then you have an envelope just the right size for a gift card.

Hope that's clear.
