Season of Joy Gift Cards.......

My party was at my Lovely friend Tracey's last night. She moved away from us Craft Ladies just over 2 years ago and we miss her alot. Tracey has met new Craft Buddies and What a lovely lot of Ladies they are, so we know she is in safe hands now :-(

To Traceys New Buddies - Hello All and Thank you for putting up with me rambling on and on about Stampin' Up! (although I think you all are turning into Stampin' UP! Nuts just like Me!!!! Hee!)....

These Gift cards are what I demonstrated at the party. They are quite cute and lots of shops sell Credit Style Gift cards now attached to a piece of card, so these are a more personal way of giving.
The stamp set is Season of Joy. The cardstock is Real Red, Chocolate Chip, Old Olive and Very Vanilla.

The measurements I used are:

The base card is 4" x 11".
Score at 3", 5 1/2", 8" along the 11" length.
Fold the cardstock so you form a W shape, so you have the folded centre in the middle.

Then take a Round Tab Punch and punch just the top of the Round Tab punch, where the straight parts stop. Then I used a Large Tag Punch to cut out the rest. You can see the shape made in the photo.
Add Double sided tape along the inside middle top and middle bottom and at the back of the pocket to hold the gift card.

I used the Bold Snowflake wheel to decorate the inside of the Gift Card. Then on the front I added a small piece of double sided tape to hold the ribbon before adding the image. Then wrap the ribbon around the back of the Gift Card and tie a bow.

You can get 2 of these from a piece of A4 cardstock.

Hope you have a great weekend,

Thanks for looking,
Jenny:-)xx

Hi Jenny, Thanks for doing the party last night, we were so full of inspiration that we didn't stop chattering about your designs all the way home! Once again, you have inspired us to buy SU sets that weren't even on our lists, but you always do! Many thanks once again Jemma x

Jenny ~ I have never heard the word WOW uttered so many times in one evening. Your cards are as everybody said just WOW. You truely are an inspiration, thanks for a great party on Friday. You will be pleased to hear that when I got home I still remembered how to tie the ribbon bow. Just to make sure I don't forget I have decided that all cards from now on need them. FIL's birthday is next not sure what he will think ! Helen x
