Double Fold Gift Card Holder

There are so many occasions we can use gift card holders for - birthdays, graduation, weddings, baby showers and more! This is a pretty gift card holder that's easy to make.  It's a great one to showcase pretty designer series paper. Inspiration for this card is from Tami White at stampwithtami.com.  I've added a little more designer series paper.  Here's a pic of three completely different gift card holders:

Gift card holders2

One uses the lovely Sunshine and Rainbows DSP.  The one on the right uses the Heart & Home DSP and the Special Moments stamp set.  The bottom gift card holder uses the Friendly Hello DSP.  Below is a pic of what the card looks like when it's open:

I've used a circle punch to make the easy access 1/2" circle opening in the DSP that holds the gift card.

This is the gift card holder I made during Monday Mystery Stamping in the Meadow tonight.  It's the first time I used the Waves of Inspiration stamp set, and I can't wait to use it some more!

Isn't the paper gorgeous?  It will be available to purchase beginning tomorrow March 1st!  Here's the inside:

Pocket Full of Posies Card

This card started with making an Origami Pocket.  I saw Jeri from Recycled Parts 4 Art on YouTube show how to make a simple Origami Pocket.  Hmmm...wouldn't it be pretty with some posies sprouting from the pocket! I used the lovely Friendly Hello designer series paper, (which is free right now for a few more days) with a 100.00 order.  (It comes with a beautiful stamp set too.) 

Here's the Petal Pink card:

Pocket full of posies pink card2

You can see there is a layer of Basic White that is embossed with the Hive 3D Embossing Folder.  I love the texture and the "country feel" it gives.  Here's the Pool Party version:

Pocket full of posies pool party2

I decided to framt he pocket and the white layer in Basic Black.  I think it helps it pop.  I also really like the Poppy Parade inked flowers.

And here's the third card:

Soft Seafoam was used for the framed layers on this card.

In the video tutorial I show you how to make the pocket.  You can view it here:

CARDS WITH DAFFODIL AFTERNOON DSP

It was a lot of fun to create these cards with the lovely Daffodil Afternoon DSP. This DSP is available for free with a $50.00 purchase during Sale-A-Bration.  And Sale-A-Bration is only here for another week! I've used one card sketch, but each card has a different look.  I've made a couple vertically and a couple horizontally.  

This is the first one I made:

DAFFODIL AFTERNOON YELLOW

All of the sentiments are from the Special Moments stamp set, which is another free item during Sale-a-Bration. Special Moments has quite a variety of stamps for different occasions.

This is the second card I made:

DAFFODIL AFTERNOON BLACK

I added a piece of Very Vanilla die cut with one of the border dies.  The sentiment piece on this one is turned on point.

And here is a horizontal card using the same pattern:

DAFFODIL AFTERNOON MINT

The measurements for this card are:

Card base: 5 1/2 x 8 1/2" scored @ 4 1/4"

DSP: 5 1/2 x 3"; 2 x 2

Card stock: 2 1/2 x 2 1/2"; 1 x 3"

Turning Sentiment Card With Give it a Whirl Dies

I've had these dies for a few months and thought I should finally try them out. They look a little overwhelming - there's so many dies and what is each one supposed to do?  I get the clouds and the hearts and the stars, but what about everything else ha ha?

Give it a whirl dies

I did manage to figure out what they do and came up with a few cards:

Driving by give it a whirl cards2

I've seen the dies used in many different ways with many different stamp sets. These cards were inspired by a YouTube video by LynnieC Designs. Here's a close up of my cards. This one is my favorite.

Driving by give it a whirl flirty flamingo2

The DSP is from Sunshine and Rainbows Salabration paper.  It's free with a $50.00 order (at least until February 28, 2022).  Driving By Stamp Set is also a Salabration item that's free with a $50.00 order. The road line is from the Pattern Party DSP.

The card below is similar except I've used Magenta Madness for the pink and DSP for the sky from the Simply Marbelous DSP - another free salabration pack!

Driving by give it a whirl magenta madness2

See the tiny arrow at the bottom below the spinner tab?  That's from one of the dies in the set. The next card uses the van from Driving By.  I've cut out a flower from the Pattern Play DSP and put it on the door to make it look like a retro 70s van:

Driving by give a whirl van2

DSP for the night sky is from the Sunshine and Rainbows Salabration paper.

Here are the measurements for the card:

5 1/2 x 8 1/2" card base scored at 4 1/4"

Card layer - 5 3/8 x 4 1/8"

DSP for front die cut rectangle - 5 1/4 x 4"

Black card stock for road - 5 1/4 x 1 1/4" (die cut with lower part of rectangle where wheel well is)

Basic White - large piece for circle mechanism; scrap piece for car/van; scrap pieces for clouds; scrap piece for circle to go on the inside over the mechanism.
