Father's Day II
My husband has always been romantic. So for Father's Day I wanted to make him something that reflected his personality. I gave him a 90 minute massage at a local spa as his gift and wanted to include it in the card somehow. I love the long cards so I started with that as a base. The red strip that you see inside was the 'holder' for the gift card. I used adhesive on the edges but also towards the middle - which I usually wouldn't do - but I wanted the gift card to fit snuggly without slipping out and flopping around in the envelope. It did the trick! He loved the card and the gift. =)
I hope that everyone has a very creative 4th!!!
