On the 4th Day of Christmas


 We are sharing this quick & easy Gift Card Holder with you that will be very helpful this holiday season!

By using Shelly's Images PRECOLORED "One Last Stop" digi image, you can have all your gift card holders done in no time at all!
Let's get started!

Here are the materials you will need:
  • 1 piece of card stock cut 8 1/2" x 4 7/8"
  • design paper cut to three sizes ... (1) 4 3/4" x 2 7/8" for front cover (2) 4 3/4" x 1 7/8" for inside and lower front flap
  • 1/8" Scor Tape (or red line tape)
  • Shelly's Images precolored image
  • embellishments of our choice

STEP 1:  After cutting your card stock (base card) to 8 1/2" x 4 7/8", score it at 2" and 5 1/2"

 STEP 2:  Cut designer paper to 4 3/4" x 2 7/8" and adhere to card front.  (This is a great way to use up those scraps.)

STEP 3:  Cut designer paper to 4 3/4" x 1 7/8" for the lower portion of the card front as well as the inside top panel.  (This way you will easily see the edge of the gift card enclosure panel. )

STEP 4:  Position a strip of 1/8" Scor-Tape to the left & right sides of the INSIDE of the lower panel.

STEP 5:  Adhere lower panel to inside back panel and your gift card holder is ready to decorate!

STEP 6:  Print & mat Shelly's Images PRECOLORED "ONE LAST STOP" digi image and adhere to your card front.  Add embellishments & sentiments to your liking!  VIOLA!  DONE!
