Slide Out Gift Card Holder {Buttons & Baby Ducks}

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.

Congratulations Card

WOW! The font on this “congratulations” stamp is just beautiful! It’s called Well Scripted and again, I ordered it in clear mount. It couldn’t be easier to use.

The card base is striped Kraft (from Taste of Textiles) and I stamped the sentiment in Versamark ink and heat embossed it with White Embossing Powder.

Then, I used the butterflies from the Beautiful Wings Embosslit and my Big Shot to decorate the rest of the card front. The butterflies are made from Melon Mambo, Apricot Appeal, and Baja Breeze card stock. They’re attached with Mini Glue Dots in a cascading pattern.

Slide Out Pocket Cards–Holiday and Baby Themes

This is the card I made in my video tutorial (see previous post). Outside pocket was made using Real Red textured card stock, with Christmas Cocoa DSP on the front panel. Inside, the slide out portion was made using Real Red and Whisper White card stock, with the upper corners rounded by the Corner Rounder Punch.

Stamp is from Snow Buddies (a Level 2 Hostess set) that I embossed with black embossing powder, colored in with Aquapainter. The window on the front was made from 1 3/8″ Circle Punch and Scallop Circle Punch. The ribbon is Real Red Polka Dot Ribbon.

It’s hard to see in the photo, but I punched the insert with the Slit Punch to make it a gift card holder.

This version uses Urban Oasis DSP (retired) as the outer jacket. The inside is Kiwi Kiss layered with Whisper White card stock. Again, I used the Corner Rounder Punch on the tops only. Stamp is from Goody Goody Gumdrops (Retired Hostess Set), embossed with Black embossing powder and colored in with Aquapainter. To finish it off, I tied some Very Vanilla 5/8″ Grosgrain Ribbon around the card.

Yet another version in a more girly color scheme. This would make a great baby shower card for a little girl, or simply change the stamp image to a cupcake and you have a fun birthday card! Card base is chocolate chip, layered with Sweet Always DSP in the polka dot pattern. I ran a strip of regal rose card stock through the crimper, attached it to the front with dimensionals and then tied some fabulous Chocolate Chip Satin Ribbon around the front.

Finally, this is the version I’ll be giving to my friend for her baby shower. Inside, I made a slit using the Slit Punch to hold a gift card. The outside is Barely Banana card stock, layered with Delicate Dots DSP (from last SAB). The green is Kiwi Kiss and the duck is from Goody Goody Gumdrops.
