Animal Fun Gift Card
What if you combine a giftcard and a match stick card ideas, what do you get? This new gift card layout. This sliding gift card element is not a new idea - but a clever way to make a flap to hold the card is.
Step 1- Gather one 8 1/2 x 11 piece of Kraft cardstock. For the first step, cut the Kraft cardstock at 4 1/4" by 11". With the 11" side horizontal, score at 1 3/4" and 7". Second step, using the remining Kraft cardstock cut 3 1/4" by 6 3/4". With the 6 3/4 horizontal in the score pal and score at 1/2" and 5".
Step 2 - Locate the 4 1/4" by 11" piece. Using the envolope board place the 4 1/4" end into the envolpe board on the 1" mark, punch. Flip over and place again at the 1" mark, punch. You just created the flap cutout.
Step 3 - I used the retired SU Polar Express stamp set. Took the small swirl stamp in the set along with brown ink and stamped the background. Next, I stamped the main image and colored it using Copics [(bears - B0000, B000, B00), (sled - E13, E15, E18), (snow - E41, E43)]. Lay the matted image to the side.
Step 4 - On the card base apply red tape on each short side of the 1 3/4" flap. Don't put tape in the center, you will be putting the smaller Kraft piece in the pocket.
Step 5 - Locate the 3 1/4" by 6 3/4" Kraft cardstock piece. Fold the large section up. You will fold the 1/2" scored piece to the back. Place red tape on the 1/2" piece.
Step 6 - Place this piece inside the base card. Remove the red tape and simply clise the card. It will attach itself to the slider right where it should be.
Step 7 - Finish the front of the card as desire. You can see a video on this card by clicking here.
