Pop-Up Gift Card Holder

Hi Stampers!

Today I want to share with you my version of the Pop-Up Gift Card Holder.  Mine is constructed most closely to Dawn Griffith's version on her You Tube video (I'll link to it at the end of this post). The difference in mine (besides the decorating) is that I used punched circles folded in half to secure the inner section that holds the gift card.  Most other versions use a strip of double-sided sticky tape to hold it together, but I found that no matter how close to the edge of the pocket I placed the tape, it still got in the way of the gift card and made the pocket too tight to function well.

This greeting is from Suite Sayings (140709), a stamp set which I've used over and over. I love the way this turned out - can't go wrong with gold embossing on black for a big impact!

 The cardstock colors are Hello Honey and Basic Black and the designer paper is called Going Places (140581).  The designer paper is retiring on May 31.

The designer paper on this one is called It's My Party (140552).  This paper comes in a 12 x 12 stack of 48 sheets with 4 each of 12 double-sided designs.   The colors on the balloons are Melon Mambo, Crushed Curry and Mint Macaron.  The greeting is another one from the Suite Sayings stamp set.  The Baker's Twine Combo Pack (140555) has 2 25-yard spools of two-tone twine in Basic Black with Melon Mambo and Mint Macaron.
The balloons were stamped using the Balloon Celebration (140675) stamp set.
The designer paper and Baker's Twine both retire on May 31.

The Envelope Punch Board is used to make the notches you see in this photo.  The tab that is formed between them tucks neatly into the bottom half of the card.

 In this photo you can see the folded circles that secure the inner section where the gift card is held.

Here is the link to Dawn Griffith's video that shows exactly how this card is constructed:

Thanks for looking!
