Here's a fun birthday card/gift card holder that I saw on Dawn Griffith's blog. I made one (I'm preparing for a "birthdays only" class in early April) and liked it so much I thought I'd send one to my brother-in-law later this week. Take a look:
From the front, it doesn't really look ALL that special. But that little circle at the bottom is actually holding it closed...
I started with a base of Whisper White Thick cardstock, cut 4-1/4" x 11" and scored at 5-1/2", just like a traditional card. But then you score in the middle of one of the sides and fold it back on itself.
Then there's the small card:
I used BYOP and Perfect Pairings (this can be yours FREE with a qualifying Sale-a-Bration order, just through the end of this month!). These were stamped in Night of Navy and Soft Suede ink.
Try one of these cards--it's fun and should make the recipient smile as the cards unfolds and unfolds to reveal a surprise!
