You're the Sweetest Gift Card Holder

Hi friends!

This is just the sweetest little shaker card with a gift card holder on the inside!

See the tutorial below! (Scroll all the way to the bottom to see the Copic markers I used!)

Start with a piece of 10.25″ x 5.5″ white card stock. Score it at 4″, flip the card 180° and score again at 2″.

I used a super pointy tool to make a hole in my card front. I measure it with a ruler to make sure I centered it correctly.

Next, I rounded all the edges with corner punch. This amazing 3 Corner Punch is from Dress My Craft and has 3 different options. I used R7mm, but any corner punch will do.

For the gift card holder that goes inside the card, I cut a piece of card stock to 4.25″ x 2.5″. Then, I scored it at 1″ and 3.25″. Then, I turned it 180° and scored at the 2″ mark.

This adorable Mini Score Board is also from Dress My Craft. It is my go-to score board because it’s so tiny and doesn’t take up any space!

I cut a diagonal line and then a straight line to create a better fold.

Using some Stitched Circle dies, I created a shaker. These Angel Mix and Pearls shaker elements are from Dress My Craft. I blended everything with Shaded Lilac and Spun Sugar distress oxides.

After figuring out where I wanted to place my shaker circle, I needed to cut out a circle from the flap so that the card would close properly. I held my die in place with some purple tape and then ran it through my die cut machine.

I used a Dotted Hearts background stamp from Simon Says Stamp along with Shaded Lilac distress oxide. I blended the entire card using Shaded Lilac and Spun Sugar.

I made a smaller circle die cut for the top portion of the card. And then I made one tiny circle that will be used to wrap my twine around.

I blended all the circles with Distress Oxides.

I stamped, colored, and die cut my Avery Elle “Peek-a-Boo Pals”. Please see the end of the post for the colors used.

Next, I got my littlest circle ready for a brad and the twine.

Next, I stamped a few sentiments onto black card stock with Versamark watermark. I heat embossed with white embossing powder.

Next, I adhered all my components to the front of the card, using glue and 3D foam dots.

For the inside fo the card, I stamped a sentiment onto my gift card holder.

I used super sticky double sided tape to hold my gift card holder together and placed it in the center of the inside of the card.

Next I adhered my hippo, being sure that the gift card would be able to go BEHIND the hippo.

I cut a piece of white card stock and rounded the edges. I adhered it on the left flap.

All finished!! Here are some more photos! (Keep scrolling down for the Copic markers used.)
