Gift Card Holder

A Different Kind of Fold
I designed this card for a convention swap that I signed
up for. This is a new set from the Fall/Winter Collection that I got called Party Hearty. The letter B for birthday was stamped in White craft pad using Real Red paper. I punched the present image using the 3/4 " circle punch and mounted it in dimensional. I wanted to add the red brads on the sides, so I used the 1/4" circle punch and glued them underneath the brads to emphasize them better. The background was stamped repeatedly in White Craft pad.

Thanks for stopping by.

RECIPE:
Stamps: Party Hearty, Big Bold Birthday
Paper: Real red, Regal Rose, So Saffron, Whisper White
Ink: White Craft, Real Red,Regal Rose, So Saffron
Accessories: Red brads, red grosgrain ribbon
Tools: Circle punches, piercing tool




The main panel is cut at 31/3" x 41/2".

The white panel is cut 33/4" x 2".

Inside of the Card:

I used a 41/4 x 51/2 envelope,

scored at 11/2 inches on both sides.
