Hello and welcome to my blog; today I have a little gift card holder to share with you using the retiring Hey Sports Fans Designer Series Paper and the new Celebrate with Tags Bundle from the 2022 July - December Mini Catalog from Stampin' Up!. Here's a look at this cute little masculine card/gift card holder.
Most people love to give gift cards and a pretty card for birthdays, and other occasions, but its hard to find a card or gift card holder that's not same as the one that everyone else picked up at the store; unless you make one yourself. Enter today's project. I have made this gift card holder/card in the past but it's been a very long time. So, I decided to bring it back out of the crafting closet today.
Tips & Tricks:
This little gift card holder/card is super easy to make and doesn't take a lot of supplies to do so. It's a 1/2 piece of cardstock. I used a piece of Evening Evergreen Cardstock cut at 4 1/4" x 10" scored at 5 1/2" and 1 3/4". The 1 3/4" section will be the one that makes the pocket for your gift card. The gift card is safely tucked on the inside flap of the card front. You will want to use Multipurpose Liquid Glue for this and just a very fine bead of glue right along the edge of the two sides. You only want enough glue to hold the pocket close. Seal and Seal+ would work great but it's to wide for the pocket. I "may" or "may not have" glued the first try's pocket to small where the gift card would go in but wouldn't close.
I then added a piece of Hey Sports Fan Designer Series Paper to the inside of the card cut at 3 3/4" x 5" and layered that onto a mat layer cut from Poppy Parade Cardstock cut at 4" x 5 1/4". I added a scalloped stitched rectangle cut from Very Vanilla Cardstock using the Scalloped Contours Dies. For the gift card holder/card front I added another piece of Hey Sports Fan Designer Series Paper cut at 2 1/4" x 3 3/4" and layered it onto a piece of Poppy Parade Cardstock cut at 2 1/2" x 4". I cut another scalloped stitched rectangle the same size as the one on the inside with the same Scalloped Contours Dies from a piece of Very Vanilla Cardstock. On the front die cut I added a piece of the DSP cut at 3 3/16"x 2". 3 3/16th is the small tick mark on the trimmer between 3 1/8" and 3 1/4". The scalloped stitched rectangle was added to the card front with a couple Stampin' Dimensionals.
To finish off the gift card holder/card I stamped the Happy Birthday sentiment from the Celebrate with Tags Stamp Set (available July 1, 2022,) onto a piece of Very Vanilla Cardstock with some Poppy Parade Classic Ink. I then used the stitched rectangle die from the Celebrations Tag Dies to cut it out. I then added the sentiment onto the card front with Stampin' Dimensionals. I next stamped the balloon image from the Celebrate with Tags Stamp Set three times on a scrap of Very Vanilla Cardstock once with the following colors Evening Evergreen Classic Ink, Night of Navy Classic Ink, and Poppy Parade Classic Ink. I then used the coordinating die from the Celebrations Tag Dies and cut each one out. Each balloon was popped up with a Stampin' Dimensional with the streamer tucked under the sentiment.
Thanks for dropping by I hope you have a wonderful day. I have all the supplies used to create today's project listed below.
