Gift Card Holder

SU Merry Little Labels Corner Pop Up Card

November 10, 2017

Have you noticed the cute Merry Little Labels Bundle in the holiday catalog?

It comes with the coordinating Everyday Label Punch.

And the other sentiments “Special Delivery” and “Eat Drink and Be Merry”

fit in the SU Layering Ovals and Layering Circles Framelits,

They are really cute little labels that are so merry!

I was given the task of using the stamp set for a card and ended up using FOUR of them on this gift card holder!

 

You slide a gift card holder or some cash in the snowflake triangular pouch

and slip a little ribbon around it to shut it with a bow! Add a few little rhinestones for some bling:)

Put a little name tag on the back, too!

Now how did I make this card?

  1. Start with a square- this one was 8″ x 8″. You can make it any size.
  2. Score it in half on one side and then turn it a quarter turn and score again in half. You now have a square with a plus sign dividing it in four quarters.
  3. Now take the scored square and turn it so two opposite diagonal corners are both in the groove of your Stampin’ Trimmer and score from one corner tip at the top of trimmer to the opposite diagonal corner tip at the bottom of trimmer. Only score once on the diagonal. You now have a square with a scored plus sign and one diagonal score from two opposite corners.
  4. Fold on all the score lines so the card closes with the triangle scores folded on the inside and two non-scored squares on the two outside panels.  You can watch Lisa Curcio’s video HERE to see the folding.
  5. The Special Delivery is on one of the diagonal scored quarters. On the other diagonally scored quarter, you will adhere the folds together where the “For You” is located. You will also adhere the bottom of the flap where the silver foil snowflakes are so the gift card can slip in the pocket.
  6. Place a tag on the back to personalize the treat!

SU Merry Cafe with Season to Sparkle

September 10, 2017

It’s great when Stampin’ Up releases a stamp set that coordinates with a previously released stamp set or framelits.

I was jumping for joy when they designed the SU Merry Cafe (new to the Holiday Catalog)

to pair up with the SU Coffee Cafe Bundle in the Annual Catalog!

Of course, I used the super versatile Layering Seasons Framelits and the gorgeous new Painted Autumn Designer Series Paper to create this fall themed card…or should I say…gift card holder!

It is quite easy to make a quick gift card holder. I just folded back a 1-1/4″ scored section from the front of the card. That folded section created a space to show off  the  1″ of pumpkin DSP!

I gave my stamping gals the choice of an autumn card or a Halloween card by simply changing the embossing on the front and adding a raven and spider from the SU Season to Sparkle stamp set. It’s another one of those new bundles that have seasonal stamps in it.

Is that sentiment just the best ever? Scream and Sugar!!!!!!!!!!!!

I was so happy to present these cards to my girls at class last week-  they loved the DSP, the Merry Cafe, the Pinewood Embossing Folder, and the spider and raven from the Season to Sparkle! Not to mention we used the Seasonal Layers Thinlits yet again showing how versatile they are in the stamping tool box:)

*SU does not have a current spider web EF so I used another one I had on hand.

SU Gift Card Holders using Hostess set Time of Year

November 28, 2016

Looking for a neat way to give a gift card this holiday season? Here is a quick and easy one..

su-gift-card-holder-thinking-of-you-2

I made two versions of the card using the SU Warmth and Cheer Designer Series Paper Pack full of “warm” patterns. I used a hostess stamp set from the Annual Catalog called Time of Year . It is a versatile set with all occasion sentiments. As you can see I created a Christmas and a Birthday card.

Here are some directions:

First, you score a 4 1/4″ x 11″ piece of cardstock at 2 3/4″ and 5 1/2″ on the 11″ side. You then fold back the 2 3/4 portion into the inside 5 1/2″ score fold (see photo below). On the edge that will fold back to the 5 1/2″ score, trim 1/8″ off so it fits flat unimpeded by the fold.

folded-card

Now slide that trimmed edge the whole way inside the Classic Label Punch in the middle of the paper. After you punch the slot, you will have to slide the punch 1/8″ to the left and then right to widen the slot for the gift card holder. See photos below:

classic-label-1

classic-label-2

classic-label-3

Adhere the flap down around the edges of the flap so the gift card has a pocket to slide into.

su-gift-card-holder-christmas-open

To hold the card closed just pop some dimensionals on the top right hand corner under something like the circle I have with the holly and berries or the birthday cake (off hand, I can’t remember where it came from) on it and slide the flap under it. The confetti comes from a new stamp coming out in the Ocassions Catalog.

Here is the Birthday version:

This is one of the cutest ways I have seen to make a quick and easy gift card holder…I bet you can’t resist making one now…have fun and share it with me if you make one!

SU Petal Potpourri Gift Card Holder

February 2, 2015

I just got back from an awesome Stampin’ Up Leadership Conference in Orlando.
It was packed with inspiration, friends, and fun!
We were all given this cool bag to tote all of our goodies!

Here is my pal, Debbi Muche, who was “one” of my babysitters for the event…

Cindy and Debbi

and my upline Linda Heller and my up, upline Mari Fredericks…

And, yes, I even had the pleasure of meeting up with Brian King, too! My hubby had to leave a bit early because of a flight the next morning, and I got to sit beside Brian on the way home from the Managers reception and dazzle him with my interesting conversation even though he was texting Linda that the lady sitting next to him would not shut up…LOL.

 Here is one of the swaps I created to share with other demonstrators who attended.

I think this project wins the prize for using the MOST SU items!

SU Petal Potpourri Gift Card Holder Slanted

I used the Gift Card Envelope and Trim Thinlits, which is a carry-over product from the Holiday Catalog, and the Large Polka Dot embossing folder to make the gift card holder- super simple.  I used the new super cool  B.Y.O.P. stamp set for the sentiments on the outside and inside. The outside sentiment was die cut with the Project Life framelits, and the upper inside sentiment was die cut from the Word Bubbles framelits. The B.Y.O.P. is a seriously versatile stamp set that serves the need we all have for giving gift cards.

SU Petal Potpourri Gift Card Holder Inside

I stamped the flower from the new Petal Potpourri stamp set, and punched it out with ease using the new Flower Medallion coordinating punch (that also works with the new Crazy About You stamp set.) The leaf comes from the Flower Patch stamp set that also has matching framelits! What could go better with the focal flower than the Flowerpot DSP? I pulled all the colors for the swap from that DSP- Lost Lagoon, Tangerine Tango, Crushed Curry, Garden Green and Night of Navy.

I decided to hold it together in the back with some Crushed Curry Sale-a-bration ribbon that you can get FREE with a $50 order during SALE-A-BRATION 2015!
Oh, and the cute little button is also from the SAB Ribbon/Button Accessory Pack.
