“Gifting Made Easy” by Gift Card Girlfriend
An easy way to make a wedding gift card more personal is to pair it with a quote about love. There are a bazillion quotes on Pinterest that you can print and craft up yourself or you can simply buy one like I did. This quote, “Love Never Ends,” is the perfect complement to our love gift card and free printable. In the steps below, I’ll show you how I turned this gift of love into a lovely gift.
Step 1: Order Gift Card and Download Printable
After that walk down the aisle, there’s no telling what lies ahead for the happy couple. Will it be a breezy stroll down easy street or will reality hit them with a bit of a rocky road? Whatever it is, they can travel the road together. Get the bride and groom a Visa® gift card that can be used almost anywhere life takes them. The first step to making this happen is to order the wedding gift card below. While you wait for the card to arrive, make a framed quote or shop for one at the craft or department store. (Why not save on your craft supplies with a discount Michael’s gift card?)
Order the “Wedding Love” Gift Card
Download the matching Flat “Wedding Love” Holder
Download the matching Folded “Wedding Love” Holder
Step 2: Print and Cut
After downloading the holder you want, print it on a color printer using “best quality” and “actual size” settings. (Do not select “shrink to fit” or any other setting that will change the size of the printed .pdf image.) White, card stock paper measuring 8-1/2″ x 11″ works best. Cut the holder with a paper cutter using the trim marks as guides.
If you selected the flat holder, all you have to do is affix the gift card to it. Using double-sided tape or glue dots, attach the gift card to the holder in the marked spot. (Be careful not to damage the magnetic stripe.) I like to hang gift card holders on a “little something extra.” If you’re planning to do the same, punch a hole in the top of the carrier and loop a piece of ribbon, twine or string through the opening.
Step 3: Measure the Folded Holder
If you look at the printed side of the folded carrier, you’ll see a faint line that indicates where to fold the card. The folding lines are at the 3″ and 6-1/4″ marks. Using a pencil, mark the back side (white side) of the carrier at those measurements. (If you want more of the wedding words to show when the card is folded, then move the 3” mark a little bit lower. 2-3/4” would be a nice length.)
Step 4: Score the Folded Holder
The easiest way to fold card stock is to score it first. Using a ruler and the measured marks, score the paper on the fold lines. (Watch this video on how I score card stock.)
Step 5: Fold the Holder
Fold up the gift card holder as shown. Using double-sided tape or a glue stick, seal the edges of the gift card pocket. Then, put the gift card inside and the gift card is ready to go. Deliver it as-is, tuck the card inside a larger gift or punch a hole through the top (careful not to nick the magnetic stripe) and attach it to a simple wedding quote.
Step 7: Present
The last thing to do is attach the wedding gift card pocket or flat holder to the love quote. Tie a bow on the frame and tuck the gift card inside or loop it through with another ribbon. Place everything in a box or gift bag and you’re done.
If you don’t want to attach the wedding gift card to a quote, then let us send the gift card to the happy couple for you. When you order the “Wedding Love” Gift Card, order the standard greeting card for $1.50 more. In a matter of minutes, this wonderful gift of love will be on its way.
