December Play Day Gift Card Holder!

I found the instructions for this awesome gift card holder on Stampin Connection, the Stampin Up Demo only web site.  This makes up fast and easy and uses a minimal amount of cardstock!

Here is my recipe:

STAMPS:  Merry and Type, More Merry Messages

     Cherry Cobbler:  4-1/4 x 11, score at 3" down the long side, score at 3" and 7" down the short side
     (cut 1-1/4 x 7 along the short section and middle section, save for belly band)
     Be of Good Cheer DSP:  2-3/4 x 2-3/4 (2), 2-3/4 x 3-3/4 (3)
     Very Vanilla:  2-3/4 x 3-3/4
     Be of Good Cheer DSP:  1 x 7
     Scrap:  Very Vanilla

INK:  Cherry Cobbler

MARKERS:  Gumball Green, Cherry Cobbler

ACCESSORIES:  Extra Large Oval Punch, Sticky Tape, Dimensionals

The gift card looks like this when opened:

I like the way it has an obvious space to sign your name and write a short message, if desired.  I give gift cards to several friends every year, and actually don't sign the gift card holder so that they can recycle the gift card holder, which they LOVE!

And one more picture:

Sorry, I can't get this picture to rotate, but I added it to show you the back of the gift card holder before it is folded up.  Hope it helps, even without rotating it!

Kelly Gettelfinger has a great video which you can watch here, if you want step by step directions:

Happy stampin and scrappin,
