I made this very simple gift card holder as my Mom's birthday card. Her birthday is this Sunday and with all the attention on Easter I wanted to make her something a little special. (I love this little gift card holder so much that I almost don't want to give it away!) When I finished coloring her I thought she looks a little like Wednesday from the Addams Family. hee hee :)
I found the instructions for this gift card holder MONTHS ago on SplitCoast Stampers but I never saved the link, I just wrote the measurements down. Sorry :(
The base of the card is 4 1/4″ wide x 11″ long. I used my Scor-Pal and scored at 3″, 4 1/4″, 5 1/2″, and 8 1/2″. I used my MS border punch and magnets from Basic Grey to keep it closed.
Here you can see that I covered the magnet with another decorative panel. The fun thing about this gift card holder is that it looks like a small card and you can decorate the inside too with a sentiment or even stamp another coordinating image.
I used CC Designs, Swiss Miss Rosalie (Digi) from All That Scraps. I cut her out and used Pop Dots and then colored the roses twice and popped them up again. Tiny little pearls on her dress, Accent Gloss on her shoes and a hint of Shimmerz on the roses. I just LOVE her!!!
