This is another card that I made where you can have the gift card holder right inside the card.  How awesome is that?!  You only have to do one card for both things you need.  Who doesn't like that time saver, especially at this time of year.  

To make this card you will need the following products:

Christmas Around The World Designer Series Paper #144629

  • cut at 5 1/2" x 12" score at 4" and 8"

Pool Party Cardstock #122924

  • cut 2 at 3 7/8" x 5 3/8"
  • cut at 2 1/4" x 3 1/4" 
  • cut at 1" x 4"

Basic Gray Cardstock #121044

  • cut at 3 3/4" x 5 1/4"

Whisper White Cardstock #100730

  • cut at 3 1/2" x 5"
  • cut at 2 1/4" x 3 1/4"

To make the pocket for the gift card you are going to start with having your designer series paper laying in front of you with the 12" side on the top and bottom.  You will want the pattern that you want on the outside facing down onto your desk/table.  

Fold down the upper right hand corner to the first score line (this is the dotted line on the picture).  The pink diagonal line is where you will fold down the corner.   Trim off a sliver of the edge that is right a long the score line.  This will help it fold nicer and not be too thick.  I used a little bit of Snail Adhesive under this flap to help hold down the section that you folded.  It lays flatter if you do this step.  

You will need to put your piece of cardstock in the middle section before you adhere the right side flap to the middle section.  I put a piece of paper here because I didn't want the other side of the paper showing and to make it a little stronger since we are using a designer series paper.  If you were using a piece of plain cardstock you would not have to do this step.  

If you are going to use this for a gift card you will want to put the adhesive up to the blue line in the picture.  If you want to use it to put tags or maybe some tickets you will only put adhesive on the edges.

You can then go ahead and adhere all your other pieces and your sentiment.  I used Snail adhesive on the sentiment because I wanted it to be flat.

The picture really doesn't show you how pretty the Dazzling Diamonds Glitter paper is on top of the Foil Snowflakes.  The snowflake was cut out using the framelit from the the Trim Your Stocking Framelits.

Thank you for stopping by today!  I hope you have a terrific day!

Oooh, beautiful card! Being a gift card holder is an added bonus! Thanks for the great directions and the pic!

Joyce Whitman

Thank you Susan! You are very welcome. I try to always put the directions or make a video to along with my projects. I know I get frustrated when I go look how something is made and there isn't any information. When I started my blog I knew I wanted to make sure that my followers have the information they need to recreate the project.

I hope the directions were clear. I didn't have time to do a video for it, so I tried to explain it the best I could. If you have any questions, please let me know.

Have a fabulous day!
