We created these fabulous fun fold gift card holders for this week's Stamp with Me Tuesday. They have a circle at the top where you can stamp a sentiment or an image and a top flap that folds over the circle. Then, when you open the fun fold card, there is a place inside to tuck a gift card.
Using patterned paper like the Hues of Happiness, Abigail Rose or Design a Daydream Designer Series Paper from Stampin' Up!® makes these fun fold cards easy to make! However, you could also stamp images or add additional decoration like I did with the cards using the Sweet Songbirds and Happiness Abounds stamp sets.
If you missed my live demonstration, you can watch the replay to see exactly how to make this card. You'll also find a FREE Quick-Reference Guide with all of the cutting dimensions for this fun fold design at the bottom of this post, so be sure to read all the way through. And of course there are links to all of the supply lists for these cards.
It's hard to believe that it is already the middle of May! Before you know it, Father's Day will be here. The He's the Man suite from Stampin' Up!® is perfect for creating Father's Day cards or other masculine cards. It has you covered! Birthday, anniversary, congratulations - whatever handmade cards you need to make for guys, the He's All That stamp set is perfect. I used it to create a variety of slim line cards.
The suite has the He's All That Stamp set, coordinating dies, Rustic Metallic Dots, and the He's the Man patterned paper. This Designer Series Paper pack is unique because it has 2 sheets of already die-cut images that just pop out. You don't even need the stamps to create great cards. (You can check out a no-stamping card that I made with the paper over here.) This patterned paper will also be amazing for scrapbookers!
I've got lots of samples, supply lists, and dimensions for you below. So, on y go! Let's get stamping.
It can be hard making handmade cards for guys. The Cactus Cuties stamp set and Cactus Builder punch are perfect for making masculine cards when you pair them with neutral colors like Crumb Cake, Night of Navy, and Soft Succulent. These cards have a modern feel while appealing to everyone.
I also used a number of rubber stamping and card making techniques on these cards, like masking and embossing. You'll want to check out the video to see exactly how the demo card was made.
All of the cutting dimensions for my demo card are below.
Don't forget, I'm live every Thursday evening at 8pm Eastern on YouTube with more fabulous card making ideas for you!
