I started by creating a card base that, instead of being folded in half, has a 1/4″ spine to it. My card base measures 5 1/2″ x 8 3/4″ and is scored at 4 1/4″ and 4 1/2″. Then I folded my card and decorate the front of my card just like I would any card, using the super fun new Birthday Wishes collection.
I attached 5 envelopes in all to card. You could do less envelopes than that, but I wouldn’t suggest doing more. I used some stickers and die cut shapes to decorate the front sides of the mini envelopes, and put money inside each of the envelopes. To make this extra fun, you could put different denominations in each envelope. Alternately, you could stuff the envelopes with love notes, movie tickets, or IOU coupons.
Because this card is thicker than a normal card, I’ve created a special box envelope for this card.
