I love giving gift cards and/or money as gifts. I found this fun way to make a gift card holder.
You can use Designer Series Paper (use double sided for a fun look) or make your own. Yes, make your own with your stamps. You can practice stamping designs, color combinations and it is just fun and creative. Very relaxing. You will use those stamps you have always wanted to use but did not know how to make for a card…this is beyond the card.
You begin with a 12″ by 12″ piece of paper. You will stamp both sides in colors you choose, I used Timeless Tulips stamp set from Stampin’ Up!. Pear Pizzaz was used in green stems, the pink I used was Blushing Bride. This stamp set has a matching punch.
Positive Thoughts stamp set, has a beautiful Fern that Used. This set has matching dies, I did not use the dies in this project. Check back again, you will see them later.
Measurements: 8-5/8″ x 9-7/8″ for paper. I cut with a paper cutter.
The long (Tall) way, fold this in half. You than will bring the bottom up to fold line and the top to the fold line…. You have four sections. Burnish well with bone folder.
Open up, fold in corners as shown in video.
You than fold in the end to meet in the middle
Now we are going to flip this over (see video) and bring up the ends at the points.
than have both end folded up. Keeping sides straight when folding over
We than are taking the ends and bending them into each other.
Loved making this card for my brother. He is super special. We have birthdays on the same day.
I was born on his 4th birthday along with my twin sister…yes, 3 birthdays in one day. Our lives changed in 2014 as my twin passed away from a stroke at 56. My days have never been the same but I press on, move on but always have her in my heart and mind. Life is different, never will be the same.
I had to do this card in steps. Yes, my arthritis kicked on a revenge. My hands could not function. Like typing this right now is not simple. I use to type for a living, now I pray I can do keyboarding just a little. I press on. You have to, it is the only choice you have.
The card is simple but striking.
This high-quality printed paper is excellent scrapbook paper, card making paper, and more. Pack includes various golf-themed images, prints, and patterns. It’s a great choice for masculine cards and projects. I love the plaids.
