It’s a Gift Card … Card!

Hi everyone, Christine here today with a card that also features a secret gift card.  It’s easily made with Crafty Foam Tape and makes a regular card that little bit more special.

Creating the Gift Card Holder

Cut a piece of patterned paper slightly smaller than your A2-size (4.25 x 5.50-inch) white card base. This is your card panel. Using a shaped etched die, center it on the right side edge of the patterned paper. I secured the die with washi tape to avoid shifting. Then cut with a die cutting machine. Designer Note: you can also use a punch or hand cut.

On the back of the cut card panel, position your gift card and place strips of Crafty Foam Tape around three edges. Make sure to give it a little wiggle room. This creates the pocket to hold the gift card.

Apply more Crafty Foam Tape around the card panel and affix it to the card base.

Use several decorative die cuts in various cardstock to layer and embellish the card panel. Stamp a sentiment on white cardstock, and die-cut over it with a narrow rectangle die. Place several 3D Foam Squares White Small behind the sentiment and adhere to the card panel.
