Gift Card Holder

Good Morning Happy Stamper!

Grab a cup of coffee/tea/etc.. and come have a little sit with me.
I wanna show you a quick and easy way to add a gift card pocket to a card!

oh..and I know you're shocked...
I'm going to use the Perfect Blend stamp set with Gorgeous Grunge!!

All Is Calm Designer Washi Tape


Gorgeous Grunge + Perfect Blend = Match made in heaven!
To make the Gift Card pocket was super simple.  The card front measures 4.25 x 5.5 inches.  Normally, to make the white layer you would make it 4 x 5.25 in order to have the 1/8in border around it.  To add the gift card pocket I made the white paper 4 x 8.25  then I scored it at 5.25 to make the 3 inch deep pocket.  I used red sticky strip tape on the right and left edges and adhered them.  Voila!

Blendabilities...oh how I love thee...let me count the ways!
I used Smoky Slate on the coffee mug....and Coastal Cabana on the lid **I used the White Color Lifter Blendabilities Marker to make the colors really light because the card base is Lost Lagoon and I didn't want it to look weird!  I absolutely CANNOT wait for Stampin' Up! to release more colors of the Blendabilities!!
Also:  on the cup's "sleeve" I used our regular Stampin' Write markers in Lost Lagoon, Crumb Cake, and Pear Pizazz to make the striped design.  I love the look of corrugated cardboard, like the sleeves you get at the coffee shop!
The snowflakes are from the Frosted Sequins in the Holiday Catalog
