This gift card holder was cased from Rachel Tessman. from "Stamp Your Art Out." I just happened to find her as I surfed for ideas for a class. I needed something for my ladies to make in January that could be used for a someone no matter if they were 15 or 50 or 100, and I wanted to feature the new Designer SAB paper named " How Sweet It Is." I think the cupcake sheet is so cute that I didn't want to cut it! Solution: just use one of the cupcakes layered onto a piece of the back of the cupcake sheet; I have plenty of that sheet left for my class by using the cupcakes sparingly. The stripes are on the back of a different sheet. The gift card would be appropriate for a Birthday or even for Valentine's Day.

This is so easy to make and yet looks like you spent the day making it. Hope you enjoy making and giving it.

REGISTER FOR THE CLASS: Jan. 12; $10 payable by Jan. 9 please.

Notice that I used a DSP paper behind the cupcake in one picture. In the other sample, I layered whisper white on top of that DSP paper. There is no sentiment yet because I don't know who it will be given to or for what occasion. I will place my sentiment in the top left of the upper part of the card.

I have included dimensions below, pictures of my card, and a list of materials.


Whisper White Thick Cardstock

· 4-1/4” x 11” scored at 2” at one end & 3-1/2” at the other end (base card)

· 7” x 3-1/2” scored at ½” at one end & 2” at the other end (gift card holder)

· 3-1/2” x 2-3/4” (top layer behind the cupcake)

How Sweet It Is (DSP from the 2019 SAB catalog)

· 4” x 3-1/4” (dots)

· 4” x 1-3/4” (stripes)

· Coral Cabana and Granny Apple Green Ribbon: 19”

. Cupcake (fussy cut from How Sweet It is)

Tape the 1/2 inch folded section to the top "base" card. Punch a semi-circle for fingers to pull the gift card up. Then place the bottom of the inside piece down into the outside card. Fold the outside "base" sections to cover the card holder. Tie a bow to hold the card together. I used 3/8 inch ribbon. One inch would stay in place better to hold top and bottom in place.

More detailed instructions are in the January 2 post about a card holder made from the new "All My Love" DSP.

(The piece in the background of my photograph is another sheet of the "How Sweet It Is" DSP paper found in the SAB catalog that comes out in January. Get ready to be wowed!)
