Gift Inspiration Cards with Self-Laminating Pouches

Hello friends! Today, I’m sharing some gift inspiration cards that are made with Self-Laminating Pouches – Cards Small. I made these as a little gift to tuck in a graduation card.  I also made simple coordinating graduate cards.  I had so much fun putting these together that I plan to make a few for other occasions.


Here you can see one side of each of the inspiration cards in front of a coordinating graduate card.  I used a collection of papers and stickers from Bella Blvd™ called Make Your Mark. Fun bright colors!


I started by cutting patterned paper to the insert size for Self-Laminating Pouches – Cards Small (2¼ x 3½ʺ).  The photo shows the front and back sides. (I made 2 to show both sides at the same time.)  I stamped a verse on one side.  On the other side, I used a verse from the paper collection.  I used E-Z Runner® Ultra Refillable Dispenser to fasten it to the insert paper and added a tiny heart sticker.  The edge is colored with a permanent red marker.


When both sides were finished, I placed it in one of Self-Laminating Pouches – Cards Small. It’s so easy!  Place it between the layers, start peeling protective sheet from hinge side, press and smooth it over the insert.  I rubbed it with my fingers to seal it well.


Here are both sides of this inspiration card once laminated.


This photo shows the other side of each of the inspiration cards.

The graduate cards are 3½ x 6¼ʺ and made from white cardstock.  I fastened a patterned paper to front of each one using E-Z Runner® Ultra Refillable Dispenser. The greeting is stamped with black ink on white card stock and fastened with E-Z Runner® Ultra Refillable Dispenser.   Very quick and simple design!

Thanks for visiting today!
