Main How to Image

WHAT YOU WILL NEED:

Black top folding card blank - cut to 7 x 5"

Stamps from Rose & Petunia Stamp and Die Collection

Tulip Charm 12 x 12" paper pad (or you can use any double sided paper pads)

Versafine Ink Pad: Onyx Black 

Black pen

Score board

Score tool/bone folder

Scissors

Eureka 101

Paper Trimmer

Perfect Together Glue

Double sided adhesive tape (optional)

 

 



How To Guide - Step 1

Tear this paper from the Tulip Charm paper pad, and cut to 6 3/4 x 4 3/4".

How To Guide - Step 2

From the leftover paper, cut a piece 3 3/4 x 4 3/4"

How To Guide - Step 3

Cut this on the diagonal, as shown here. This will be a "pocket". 

How To Guide - Step 4

Ink up the Rose stamp, from the Rose & Petunia Stamp And Die Collection, with the Onyx Black Versafine. 

Stamp it randomly over the patterned paper. The idea is to get a distressed effect, so I held the stamp in my hand and stamped loosely on to the paper, ensuring I also stamped off the edges. 

How To Guide - Step 5

Repeat the previous step, on to the diagonal piece of patterned paper. 

How To Guide - Step 6

Use a black pen to draw a decorative, wiggly frame, around the patterned paper. 

How To Guide - Step 7

Draw the same decorative, wiggly frame, around your diagonally cut paper. 

How To Guide - Step 8

Apply double sided adhesive tape, or wet glue, down the side, and along the bottom, of the diagonally cut paper. 

How To Guide - Step 9

Adhere your "pocket" in place, on the patterned paper, so the top edge of the pocket is open (as shown here with my pokey tool placed in the top, for visual reference only ). 

How To Guide - Step 10

Adhere this on to the front of your black, top folding card blank, and set to one side. 

How To Guide - Step 11

Tear this sheet of paper from the Tulip Charm paper pad. 

Cut TWO pieces, both measuring 6 x 6". 

How To Guide - Step 12

Adhere them back to back, so you now have ONE sheet of 6 x 6" double sided paper. 

NB: You can use a different, double side paper pad instead, missing this step out!! I don't have a double sided paper pad, so this is an alternative way of getting the same result. 

How To Guide - Step 13

Score your double side paper in HALF, and fold it, using your score tool to get a good, crisp edge.  

How To Guide - Step 14

Turn your paper 45 degrees in your scoreboard, and score at 1 1/2".

Fold and use your score tool to get a good crease. 

This is how it should now look. 

How To Guide - Step 15

Cut up from the bottom, along the centre score line, up to the horizontal score line ONLY (as seen here). 

How To Guide - Step 16

Cut a litte piece off both the inner side edges of the bottom flap, as shown here, to create a "triangle". When folded up, this will take away the bulkiness of the centre fold line. 

How To Guide - Step 17

Place wet glue, or double sided adhesive tape, along the FOUR vertical sides, of the bottom flaps ONLY. 

How To Guide - Step 18

Fold up the flaps, and allow the glue/tape to adhere, to create your TWO pockets. 

How To Guide - Step 19

Once the glue is dry, you can close your gift card holder.

Give all the score lines a good, crisp crease, with your bone folder. 

How To Guide - Step 20

Ink up the Rose stamp again, with the Versafine, and stamp on to the front of your gift card holder. I like my images to come off the edge, as shown here, but that's personal preference.

How To Guide - Step 21

To finish use a black pen to draw a decorative, wiggly frame, around the inside pages, and pockets. 

You can place gift cards, photos, seed packets, etc, in the pockets, as gifts for your recipient.
