Pop-Out Gift Card Holder

Sometimes technology makes things better, but often it just complicates things, like when the microphone gives feedback and you can’t figure it out. That’s what happened in today’s Lunchtime LIVE Crafting video, and switching the mic from one device to another didn’t work, so I simply forged ahead. Guess that’s real life, eh?

At least any gift cards I give for Teacher Appreciation, Graduation, Weddings or Mother’s Day will be prettily packaged and they’ll never know about my struggle to teach you!!

You are getting a preview of the new Circle Sayings Bundle (item # 161355) as well as the Countryside Inn Designer Series Paper (Item #161467) both of which will be available May 2, 2023 from the 2023-2024 Stampin’ Up! Catalog!

When you open the card, a pocket slides out to display your gift card, and you can tuck in a note to write on, as shown:

Here are the paper pieces you’ll need for this project, since the video may not have sound where I was explaining it:

  • Boho Blue card stock: 5.5″ x 8.5″ scored at 2.5″ and 6.75″ for card base plus a 5.75″ x 4.25″ piece scored at 1.75″ x 5.25″
  • Night of Navy card stock: 4″ x 5.25″
  • Balmy Blue card stock: 1.5″ x 8″ and 1.5″ x 8.5″ (both scored every 1/4″) for medallion
  • White card stock: 2.5″ x 5″ for two circles and optional 3″ x 4″ piece for insert to write message on
  • Designer Series Paper: one 3.75″ x 5″ piece for front of card, one piece 1.5″ x 4″, one piece 1.5″ x 5.25″ and optional 1″ x 3″ for bottom of message insert

You can speed up the video and watch how to assemble this card below…remember to add the Designer Series Paper to the front of the sliding pocket BEFORE you adhere the right flap of the card base down (my fluster will remind you!):

I appreciate your patience as I continue to learn how to successfully create videos to help you gain creative confidence!
