Gift Card Card

I know some have said not to give Gift cards this year but you could also use the slot to put cash in folded up or a check.

What you will need:

12 by 12 sheet piece of cardstock
paper trimmer
punch (square or slot punch, I used square)
1. First cut your 12x12 paper to the size of 5.5 x 12. reserve the other piece for another card later.
2. Make 3 score lines at 4", 6" and 8" and fold so that your paper resembles a W.

3. apply adhesive there. on the inner arch of the W. Look at my picture below, see were the white lines are. put the adhesive there. and then stick then fold so that it is looking like a regular folded card but with this flap in the center.

5. Now using a card you may have on hand mark where you want your slit to go. I put mine in the middle. you can have your card going long ways or short. (I took a poll and most like short)
Mark your paper and using your punch make a slit for your card. for long way your slit will be 3.5 " and for short it would be 2 1/4".

6. Now embellish like you wish. I embossed the front in my cuttlebug. added some embellies. I like to stick a embelly on the inside by the slit. you don't have to. I also stamp the back side but again. this part is up to you.

it has been awhile

been busy. I made the yearly trip to madison to go scrappin. it was AWESOME! I met some online buddies and scrapped with my sister. Fun was had by all. tried Flock for the first time. AWESOME STUFF now i need to get white for the cards I am going to show you how to make in my other post. Lady is home and on the mantle. I did a few layouts for her book. I need to get an album for them so I can put them in a book and get it ready to give to dh. even though he already saw the layouts. i think having it in a book will be great. No snow here yet. my mom south got a couple inches but we got NOTHING. just brown grass and cold. I don't mind snow as long as it snows on the weekend or days I don't have to drive the kids to school. Anyway need to do my post for the cards I made.
