Wouldn’t this card make a nice iTunes gift card holder? Of course you can’t see the inside (I haven’t prettied that up yet), but I followed the instructions found in this old SCS Try a New Technique challenge: TLC165 – Gift Card Holder.
I started out with a 5-1/2″ x 12″ piece of textured card stock and scored it in half first. Then I scored it at 4-1/4″ from each end and ran a piece of Sticky Strip along one of those score lines to glue both sides together. Inside the card you end up with a 1-3/4″ pocket. Punch right on the edge of that pocket with the Word Window punch to create an opening for your gift card. I marked with a pencil how long my opening needed to be and had to punch three times to make it large enough.
The front of the card was embellished with beautiful new Cappella BasicGrey paper and double-stitched 1″ wide grosgrain ribbon, using the sketch of today’s SCS challenge (SC282). I rubbed the sentiment directly on the ribbon after it was already tied to the card. The Extreme Guitar image was stamped with Chocolate Chip ink and I sponged Bordering Blue and Sahara Sand ink around it while the panel was still inside the Nestabilities die.
Thanks for stopping by!
