How to Cut 3D Foam Sheets for Graduation Gift Card Holder

Did you know you can easily cut our 3D Foam Creative Sheets with a wafer thin die?! Let me show you how I created a fun dimensional accent on my gift card holder for an upcoming graduate. Can you believe it’s that time of the year?!

Let’s assemble the holder. I used a die template to cut out a pocket, scored and adhered it with E-Z Runner® Permanent Strips.

For the accent piece, I cut a strip of the 3D Foam Creative Sheets because I only needed just enough for the die template. With about the same size patterned paper, I place over the 3D Foam piece. The die was placed last and then cut/embossed through my manual die cutting machine.

To finish the edges, I colored it using a pastel pencil that had a similar tone of blue. I placed the foam die cut diagonally on the front of holder by removing the back liner.

Next I stamped the sentiment onto cream cardstock, placed a circle die over it and cut/embossed. It needed a mat to dress it up a bit so I adhere a larger sized circle die cut with E-Z Runner® Permanent Strips. Then I applied 3D Foam Squares – Black, Regular on the back of the stamped circle. Adhere over the accent piece.
