Welcome to Team Stamp It’s Father’s Day Blog Hop!
I am so excited to see what all the Hoppers have created today. How about you?
I have created a combo card/gift card holder. I received a gift card, in a neat little holder, as a thank you and I thought, “I need to deconstruct this thing.” lol! I think I did a pretty good job. I hope you like it!
I will have a complete project list at the bottom of this post. Also, stop back by my blog next week and I will post a free template so you can make a card of your own.
I used the retiring stamp set Going Global and the World Traveler Embossing Folder.
I chose the colors Pacific Point and Tip Top Taupe. I also added 2015-2017 In Color Designer Series Paper Stack in Tip Top Taupe. The World Stamp and world’s best dad were stamped in versa mark and embossed with Black Embossing Powder. I used the 2″ circle punch for the world and the layer behind it. Then I used the The Washi Tape punch for the sentiment.
On the inside my gift card holder pops up and moves to the left as you open the card. When closed the gift card holder folds back into the card. It can still stand up, as a card, on it’s own.
I used a strip of the In color DSP again and stamped my sentiment on Whisper White card stock, in Pacific Point. I punched it out with my 1″ circle punch. I used my banner punch to make a little flag behind my sentiment.
When building my gift card holder I wanted it to be sturdy. I knew I would be opening and closing it a lot. So, I doubled my card stock before cutting out my template. I just used my Multi Purpose Liquid Glue, and glued 2 pieces of card stock together. I also used my glue to adhere my gift card holder to the inside of the card. Once I had my card together I decided to glue another piece of card stock to the back of my card. The front was very sturdy with it’s layers so I cut a piece at 5 1/2″ X 4 1/4″ and used my glue and added to the back. This made the card really sturdy.
I really hope you have enjoyed my card today. It was so fun to make. Remember to come back to my blog next week for the free template to make your own.
