Supply list!

Let’s put it together….

  • Instructions:
    • Fold card base on score line & burnish
    • Fold greeting cardstock on score line & burnish
    • Stamp greeting on Basic White cardstock cut at 3-3/4″ x 3″ – attach to inside of the greeting layer
    • Attach DSP to Basic White layers – attach to cardstock base & greeting layer
    • To attach the acetate layer over the DSP, remove the film layer, decide what side you want to show (silver or gold), use very small dots of liquid glue behind the images so it can’t be seen on the front side.
    • Attach DSP to envelope, trim with Paper Snips

Once you’ve purchased your kit, just email me to tell me which kit you’ve purchased for this month’s Club and I’ll send you the link to join my Zoom call.

A Gift Card Holder with DSP for easy decoration!

Easy Gift Card Holder

This is a card that can hold a “gift card from a store” or perhaps a “gift card from Grandma for a hug”! It can be made with any Designer Series Paper (DSP) so you can make it for a Child’s birthday, a Wedding gift, a Father’s Day gift, or any other occasion. I like to have a few ready to use stashed in my “Card Box”!

Now let me tell you how I made it…

To begin, I used Blushing Bride Cardstock (#131198) cut @ 11″ x 4-1/4″, scored @ 2-3/4″ and 5-1/2″. The first step is to fold and burnish on the 5-1/2″ score line and fold at the 2-3/4″ sto the inside & burnish on the 2-3/4″ scoreline. Place 1 piece of Sand & Sea Designer Series Paper (#154288) cut @ 4″ x 2-1/2″ over the 2-3/4″ piece. Use the 1-1/2″ Circle Punch (#138299) to create a “thumb notch”. Add Tear and Tape on sides only and seal Gift Card Holder flap. Add DSP to the front of the 2-3/4″ “flap”. Add Basic White Cardstock cut @ 5-1/4” x 4″ to the inside of the card with adhesive. Attach the last piece of DSP to the right side of the Basic White layer.

For the greeting…

Stamp a greeting from the Oval Occasions Stamp Set (#154477) on Basic White Cardstock (#159276) with Blushing Bride Classic Ink (#147100). Punch out with plain oval in the Double Oval Punch (#154272). Punch out a scallop oval from Blushing Bride Cardstock and attach it to the back of the greeting with Stampin’ Dimensionals. Poke a hole near the end of the scallop oval to thread a length of Linen Thread (#104199) through. Make a small loop and tie a knot.

Gift Card Holder

Finishing touches…

Wrap a length of Blushing Bride Metallic Ribbon (#154283) (approximately 26″) around the gift card holder, add the tag, tie with a bow. You can use a Mini Glue Dot to attach the bow at the back of the card if you want to.
