Hi everyone, thank you for stopping by and checking out my Christmas in July Gift Card Holder. Hope you enjoyed starting this hop at Scrapalette's blog (http://scrapalette.blogspot.com). LB's blog at http://coolbeansbylb.blogspot.com should have sent you to me. If not, please don't forget to go and take a look.
The base card and accent paper were cut from the Cricut/CTMH Artiste cart, page 52, Accent 1 at
6 1/2". The base card and accent paper have two score lines. On the base card, fold the first section back at the score line and the second section forward. This gives you your flip-it/swing card.
The accent paper is cut off at the score lines for the front and back portion of the card. I did not use the accent paper on the inside fold. For the front accent paper, I cut 1/8" off the top, left side, and bottom. Ink the edges if so desired. Adhere to base card with adhesive of choice. For the back accent portion, I cut 1/8" off all four sides, inked, and adhered.
The companion shape was cut using Cricut/CTMH Art Philosophy, page 62, Oval 5 at 2 1/2". Ink edges if so desired, stamp sentiment, and adhere. To adhere the inside companion shape in its proper position, I lined it up with the design on the card, applied my adhesive, then brought the back of the card over.
The gift card holder was cut at 3 1/4" X 3". Score 1/2" on one end of the 3 1/4" side and 1/2" on both sides of the 3" side. Your gift card holder should measure 2 1/4" X 2 1/2" when finished. Trim corner pieces off near score lines and fold over. Ink edges if so desired. I attached Scor-tape to the 1/2" tabs, inserted the gift card, removed the tape backing, and adhered to the card so as not to be seen when closed.
I hope I inspired someone to make a gift card holder using the flip-it/swing cards. Now for more fun, please visit the blog of gonescrappin' at http://scrappycol.blogspot.com.
