For the month of July, we're helping you get a head start on this year's Christmas cards with our Christmas in July Card a Day Challenge!
Every day of the month, we have a new challenge for you. Be sure to follow along on our Facebook or Instagram to participate in the challenge! Tag us in your pictures or post in our Exclusive Stamping Before Anything Else Facebook group so we can see your take on the challenge.
Today is the 3rd day of the month and we're challenging you to create a gift card holder! For inspiration, you can always create this one or find one of your own.
For the card, we used Crumb Cake Cardstock for the base. Then we adhered the One Horse Open Sleigh Designer Series Paper (online exclusive available beginning July 6, 2023). For the fun fold part, we scored the Crumb Cake Cardstock following the directions below before adding some twine behind the base and adhering it to the One Horse Open Sleigh DSP card base. The front of the card has the same DSP on it but a different pattern. Then, we added the Basic White Cardstock with the sentiment stamped in Real Red ink. For the part that holds the gift card itself, we cut down the DSP, then placed half of a circle die cut over the middle. This will give us a place to actually grab onto the gift card to get it out. When we adhered this piece on, we made sure to only add glue to the left side, right side, and bottom in order to create the pocket. Finally, we added the front sentiment on with a die cut from the Stylish Shapes Dies, Basic White Cardstock, and Crumb Cake Cardstock.
