Gift card

Hello Last week at our stamp ten club we made a gift card. It is such an easy project and a great thing to have around. I used Stampin' Up's Parisian Breeze DSP and it was a snap. If you use card stock you can get 2 gift cards out of one piece of 8 1/2 X 11 inch paper.

You cut the card stock length wise at 4 1/4. Score the paper at 2 3/4, 5 1/2 and 8 1/4. Using punches you will cut out the hole to insert gift card. I found a great tutorial that makes a similar card. It is by Julie Buhler. Her website is awesome. Her tutorial is very similar to the way I made my card just the measurements are not quite the same so to get a card like mine follow the measurements above but this tutorial will help visualize the process.


Paper-Parisian Breeze DSP, Baha Breeze, Kraft
Ink - Baha Breeze
Stamps - So many scallops
Accessories - Flower fusion II, Baha Breeze Ribbon, Ice square rhinestones, Square Scallop, Word window, and 1 inch circle Punch

Thanks For Looking Virginia
