Hi Everyone! Our Glitter Queen group is highlighting BIRTHDAY’s this month in a Blog Hop! Here’s a Masculine Birthday card that features the True Gentleman Designer Series Paper.
I LOVE this card layout…Shout out to Jan Musselman for sharing! The reason why I like it so well is it uses 1/2 sheet of cardstock for the base and a few clever folds.
In my Video Tutorial on how to make this card, I also show how to use the Adhesive Sheets with your dies..they truly are game changers with the intricate or delicate die cut shapes!
Chocolate Chip Cardstock card base 4-1/4 x 11 scored at 5-1/2 & 9
True Gentleman Designer Paper: 4 x 3-1/4, 4 x 1-3/4, 4 x 2
Very Vanilla Cardstock 4 x 3-1/4
Night of Navy Cardstock 1 x 11
Scraps of Tranquil Tide, Crumb Cake, Very Vanilla Cardstocks
Add Designer Paper and Very Vanilla to the card front, gift card flap and inside of card.
With 1-1/4″ Circle Punch (1″ could be used too), take a notch out of the end so you can see and easily access the gift card. With Glue Dots or Tear & Tape, tape gift card section sides and adhere.
To make belly band – With Tear & Tape – add ribbon to center of band. With Layering Circle Dies and Crumb Cake Cardstock, make circle. With Happy Birthday Thinlits and scraps of Tranquil Tide and Very Vanilla die cut Happy Birthday using Adhesive Sheets when die cutting (see video). Wrap belly band around the card – the ends won’t meet but the circle will hide! Attach circle to band using Stamping Dimensionals
Hi Everyone! Welcome to the Glitter Queen’s Gift Card Holder Blog Hop!
For me, when I think of decorating for the holidays, I think of hanging stockings. While our daughter and her hubby are in their late 20’s, I still hang stockings for them at our house. We still start off Christmas by giving the “kids” their stockings.
So with that in mind, I wanted to make a pillow box stocking from the Tages & Trimmings Bundle! It fits gifts cards and other small treats and gifts! Quilted Christmas Designer Paper and the coordinating cardstock pack gives so many color combinations to use for choosing patterns for your stockings.
How to assemble:
Die cut images – stocking out of designer paper, cuff, heal and toe elements out of cardstock. Cut snowflake using glimmer paper.
I did use the slot die on the stocking – this is to allow ribbon or in this case, tinsel to be run through. Use a standard hole punch in the back side. I used a 1/4″ hole punch.
Stamp To/From on the top cuff. On a 1/2″ strip of whisper white, stamp Enjoy! (cut to length of gift card.
Using Mulitpurpose Glue – glue cuff, toe, heel and snowflake. Add Tear & Tape to the back section as shown – Make sure the hole punch is positioned as shown when you had the tape.
Fold all score lines. Remove Tear & Tape. It’s easier for me to align the front stocking while flat to one side. Then fold over and align and adhere the other side.
Tuck in the bottom of the pouch. Tie a loop with a knot and thread through the 1/4″ hole inside of the pouch. Close that section and thread loop through front die cut slot.
Easy way to make the loop! Grab a cylinder like a lipstick tube or such. Tie around the tube then slip off! The bigger the tube, the bigger the loop! You can see an example in the sample above on the left side of the photo!
Helping others discover the love of paper crafting through stamping and Stampin’ Up! products is my thing!
When someone receives a handmade card or gift, they feel special. And I love making others feel special, don’t you? Through stamps, paper and ink, I can make someone’s day!
