For You Gift Card Holder

Hi everyone and Happy Friday! I want to share a quick gift card holder I created.

I started by folding a piece of 6″x12″ patterned cardstock in half and place slightly below the cut line of the House/Pocket Stitchlit and ran through the diecut machine. I adhered each side together to create a pocket.

I cut two roofs, two windows, one half window, one door and one chimney diecuts from patterned cardstock. I backed all windows with vellum before adhering to the house/pocket stitch lit  I also adhere roof to the top of the diecut. Before adding the door cut another piece of cardstock slightly larger than the door and adhere behind the door before adding to the house/pocket. Also add a sequin and a glossy dot to the door.

I cut another house/pocket but cut sides down so it will fit into the pocket. I adhered the chimney diecut to the pull out and cut and add a patterned cardstock mat to pull out. 

Next I cut a Book Plate and Book Plate Frame Diecuts from patterned cardstock and adhered the frame on top of the book plate. I snapped together the words “For” and “You” from the Max Stamp Pegz Letter Set and inked with Leather Ink and stamp onto a piece of white cardstock. I cut out each letter and adhere to the book plate.

I inked a glass tray with ColorBox Blends Frog Ink and added water. I laid one leaf sprig  from the Journaling Cards, Flowers and Leaves Diecut. and removed and let dry.

I inked the leaf sprig completely with Top Boss Clear Embossing Pad and applied Opalescent Embossing Powder to the whole leaf sprig and set with heat tool.

I punched two different size circles from a piece of patterned cardstock and adhere the smaller circle on top of the larger circle. I cut two medium flowers and one small flower from Crinoline fabric using the Journaling Cards, Flowers and Leaves Diecuts. I applied a dot of adhesive in the center of both medium flowers and placed one of the flowers on top of the other flower and pinched both flowers in the center and shape.

I inked the glass tray with  Pink Chalk Ink, add water and cover the small flower with ink mixture. Once dry I added a mini gem to the center of the flower and adhere to the center of the larger flower and glued the flower and leaf sprig to the circle tag. I created a bow with cording and adhere underneath the flower on the circle tag. I punched a hole at the end of the book plate, circle punch and the top of the house pocket and added cording to the book plate and circle and tie to the top of the of the house pocket.

The last step to completing the gift card holder I cut two Bookmark Diecuts from patterned cardstock, put together according to directions  and added to pull out. This will hold the gift card in place. There you have it! You can change the theme of the gift card holder to a gingerbread house, beach house, haunted house, etc. You are only limited by your imagination. As always if you have any questions about this project please let me know.

I would also like to submit this project for the following challenges:
