I absolutely LOVE this style of card. It’s a slide out/pocket card that works really well for gift cards. I’ve made this style of card before, which you can see here. You can also view a video tutorial here.
The basics: Card stock for the base is Kraft (soon to be called Crumb Cake), Bashful Blue, and Welcome Neighbor DSP. Slider/Insert is Kraft layered with Whisper White. I rounded the edges of both layers using the Corner Rounder. To make the “window” on the front, I used the 1 3/8″ Circle Punch and Scallop Circle Punch.
Here is the slide out portion. It’s a little difficult to see in the picture, but the reason this works so well for gift cards is the Slit Punch. I punch the slit toward the bottom of the card, and a gift card slides in there perfectly.
I stamped the little duck from Goody Goody Gumdrops in Creamy Caramel ink, colored it in with Copic Markers, and then fluffed it up by adding Martha Stewart White Flocking Powder (using the 2 Way Glue Pen to adhere the Flocking Powder). The sentiment is from the same set, stamped in Bashful Blue ink.
These buttons from American Crafts–can we just admire the buttons for a minute? I threaded the larger ones with Linen Thread and attached them to the card with Glue Dots. They’re glittery and the colors go so well with the Welcome Neighbor DSP Pack.
Finally, I decided to liven up the back of the card a little by stamping the ducky repeatedly along the bottom edge. I colored them in with Copic Markers and I was surprised to see the colors showed up so well on Kraft colored card stock! Now that I know this works, I’ll have to try it more often.
