Gift Card Holder Class

Well I am teaching a Gift Card Holder class at Michaels this Saturday morning. I sat down today and planned the cards and pre-cut the paper and ribbon and things, then packed the stamps, pencils, punches, and glue. I think I might be ready for this one.

This card is made with ValuPak CS from Michael's...I have to use what I have in the store to teach with, that way the students can purchase the things we use. The inside of this card is an envelope....yes. An envelope. The CS is cut to 4 1/2 x 5 3/4 and folded in half, then the envelope is glued in. I used a craft knife to cut the envelope down to make the pocket a bit lower so that the gift card can be seen nicely. Then I glued smaller pieces of CS over the inside part of the envelope, kind of like matting, to cover it and to add just a bit more oompf to the inside!

I stamped the snowglobe and the snowman on white CS and colored them in with Rose Art colored pencils then used a ticket punch on the corners and layered it on the green and adhered the whole thing to the front of the envelope/CS contraption. Clear as mud? :D

This is the pocket card from Sketch Challenge 101 over on Splitcoaststampers. Again I used the cheap-o CS from Michaels. The image is by Stampendous and is colored with Rose Art colored pencils. The card stays closed with use of a half of a velcro dot just adhered to the inside.

This is a pocket card that I learned how to do from SCS. Again, Michaels CS, patterned paper, and ribbon. I figured it would be cute to use removable glue dots to hold the gift card onto the insert card.

What do you guys think?

My favorite thing that my husband does is on Valentines day he buys me roses and buys a single rose for our daughter and delivers it to her himself at school. He has been doing this since she was in the 2nd grade and now she is in the 7th grade. She loves to get roses from her favorite Valentine (her daddy)..
