Everyone needs Gift Card Holders for the Holiday. This one is very easy!
Cut base card stock 4-1/4" x 11", and score at 5-1/2" and 8-1/2". Use about a 1" circle punch to punch a thumb hole in the edge of the card stock. This edge folds to the inside of the card and is attached only on the side edges with strong adhesive like Tear & Tape #138995. Attach the inside layer that is 4" X 2-1/2". Last, close your card and attach the front layer so it hides the inside layer. The lovely sentiment is from the Merry Christmas to All Stamp Set #147702.
Here is a FUN "easel card" made with the Dashing Deer Stamp Set #147728! It's easy to create.
Cut the base cardstock 4-1/4" X 11, scored at 5-1/2" and 8-1/4". Create your card and attach only the lower half of the front layer. Inside, place a "STOP" for the lower front edge of the card to rest against. I often place a sentiment on the "stop." The "stop" needs to be dimensionalized. Very simply and impressive! Try it!
