Gift Idea {Movie Theater Ticket/Gift Card Holder}

I made these Popcorn theme Movie Ticket Gift Holders for my sister. I’ve made a similar version which you can see here. This time, I made them slightly different, so I’ll provide the specific directions again.

Popcorn Basket Card


You will need:

  • 12×12 Real Red card stock
  • Whisper White card stock
  • Basic Black card stock
  • Daffodil Delight card stock
  • Alphabet stamp set , Real Red and Daffodil Delight ink
  • Very Vanilla Craft ink
  • Sweet Scoops stamp set (retired Summer Mini set)
  • White Liquid Applique
  1. Cut Real Red card stock to 5″ x 12″ and score along the long edge at 4″ and 8 1/4″.
  2. Apply Sticky Strip along the bottom of the center panel and fold the right side over the center panel. Then, put Sticky Strip on the left panel, along the bottom and the left edge. Fold over and stick.
  3. Cut 5 strips of Whisper White card stock to 1/2″ x 5″ and adhere them to the front of the card, evenly spaced.
  4. For the insert, cut a piece of black card stock to 4″ x 5 1/4″ and use the Scallop Edge Border Punch along the top. Cut Whisper White card stock to 3 3/4″ x 4 3/4″ and stamp with a sentiment of your choice.
  5. Adhere the White card stock to the Black card stock (around the edges only) and using the Slit Punch, punch approximately 1″ from the bottom. This slit will hold the movie tickets or gift card.
  6. The “popcorn” was stamped using the Tidy Alphabet stamp (retired) and alternating ink color. I layered it on black card stock and attached it to the base with stampin dimensionals.
  7. The popcorn kernel was made using the ice cream stamp from Sweet Scoops, stamped with Very Vanilla craft ink, then cut out with paper snips. Next, I applied Liquid Applique, heating it until it puffs.

Bring on the “Number Cake” Birthday Card

My nephew turned 2 today, so I made him this card. I really like this number stamp from Bring on the Cake, and I especially like to emboss it before coloring in the numbers.

The card base is Riding Hood Red, layered with Nursery Suite DSP. I stamped the numbers onto whisper white and then heat embossed with Black Embossing Powder. I colored in the numbers with So Saffron Marker and the number 2 with Riding Hood Red Marker. Then, I used the Corner Rounder Punch on the top corners to make it look like a cake.

The “cake stand” is a strip of Tempting Turquoise punched with the Scallop Edge Border Punch. I used the cropadile to add holes to each scallop and then threaded White Taffeta Ribbon through the holes.

I used chocolate chip card stock behind the cake to frame it. White Gel Pen around the edges makes it pop and coordinates with the white details in the DSP. At the bottom, I added 3 old olive buttons from the Designer Buttons Brights Collection.

Ornate Blossom Cards {Shades of Blue}

I started out with inspiration from this card. Although this pattern from Greenhouse Gala DSP matches the Ornate Blossom stamp set, I could not figure out a way to use them together. It was overkill whenever I tried. By sticking with a small section of the paper however, it balances out and doesn’t make the pattern seem too bold.

Card base is Marina Mist, with a strip of Greenhouse Gala DSP paper pierced. I stamped the Ornate Blossom stamp in Marina Mist ink and the “just for you” in chocolate chip ink, from the Level 1 Hostess set Afterthoughts.

At the top, I used the corner rounder and tied some 1/4″ Chocolate chip twill ribbon (retired) around.

To add some more color, I attached three flower buttons with mini glue dots.

Along the same lines, I made this card using Ornate Blossom and Curly Cute stamp sets. The base is Marina Mist, with a strip of Greenhouse Gala DSP layered with chocolate chip card stock along the bottom.

I stamped the Ornate Blossom with chocolate chip ink on whisper white card stock and paper pierced all around with the paper piercer. Then, I layered it onto pear pizzaz card stock with stampin dimensionals.

The “thinking of you” is from Curly Cute, stamped in chocolate chip ink on whisper white. I added a pierced line below the words to coordinate with the main image.

For this last card, I stamped the Ornate Blossom stamp in Versamark on whisper white card stock and heat embossed it with White Embossing Powder. Then, I used the Brayer to add Pacific Point, Marina Mist, and Baja Breeze ink over the embossed image, darkest to lightest. Wipe the ink off the embossed image with a tissue.

Next, I stamped “for you” from Great Friends in Versamark and again, heat embossed it with White Embossing Powder. I paper pierced on either side of it with the paper piercer.

The main image was then matted onto whisper white card stock that I punched with the Scallop Edge Border Punch and paper pierced each scallop.

The card base is Baja Breeze, stamped with En Francais in Baja Breeze ink. I attached the whisper white layer to the base with stampin dimensionals and then added three pearls from Pearl Basic Jewels.
