Pop 'N Cuts - Gift Card Holder

This was the Make & Take my Team made at our Team Meeting this month.

It uses the Pop 'n Cuts Card Base to create a Gift Card Holder - although it could be used for a voucher or cash too.

I found this design on Sandi Dailey's blog. With just a few score lines you can create the Gift Card Holder. It's very quick and easy to do.

The flower is created using the Blossom punch and our Creped Filter Paper. I stapled 8 layers of the paper together and then centred the staple in the middle of the Blossom punch and punched it out. Each layer is then scrunched around the staple.

I used a sponge dauber and Primrose Petals ink to add just a little colour to the edges of the flower and then carefully opened it out.

I love the effect you get using the Blossom Punch with this paper. It's a bit of a pain once you have punched it - because the 'petals' of the punch tend to catch and tear the paper when you try and remove it - but I really like the result and it's a little different to using a circle punch.

The sentiment was stamped in White Craft Ink and then Heat Embossed with White Embossing Powder. This was then punched out with the Decorative Label Punch.

Not all my Team knew how to put the white layer behind the sentiment, so I did a quick demo to show them.

You punch two more Decorative Labels from Whisper White cardstock. Each of these is cut down the centre - one vertically and the other horizontally. 

Each piece is trimmed slightly and then stuck on the reverse of the stamped section. Easy Peasy :o)
