Cold Birthday

Making a gift card holder inside an A-2 sized card is not as difficult as you might imagine. I simply cut a couple of slits on the Whisper White panel before I adhered it to the inside of the card. I placed my business card to demonstrate where the gift card would be placed. What do you think?


   Old Olive A-2
   Cherry on Top DSP 5-1/4 x 4
   Whisper White 5-1/4 x 4 (Inside)

   Bermuda Bay
   Crushed Curry

   Dry Embossing

   Cable Knit Embossing Folder
   1/8" Bermuda Bay Ribbon
   Pretty Label Punch
   Glue Dots
   Fast Fuse

First, I stamped the Whisper White panel on the top half using Bermuda Bay ink. I then set my business card down and lightly penciled two opposite corners. I then cut a slits to open the corners for my gift card. I erased any pencil marks that were left. I then adhered this panel onto the inside of my card.

I then took my DSP panel and dry embossed it using the Cable Knit Embossing Folder. You can slightly mist the DSP with a bit of water to prevent tearing.

Next, I stamped, punched, and sponged my sentiment. I stamped it using Bermuda Bay and sponged it using Crushed Curry.

I wrapped some Bermuda Bay ribbon around the DSP panel and adhered it to the card front. 

I attached the sentiment using dimensionals.

I added a Bermuda Bay bow with a glue dot.

Always make sure your DSP is facing the right way. I did not focus when I adhered my DSP to the card front. So, my candles are all facing down instead of up. Ugh, this definitely makes it my own creation.

  1. Oh how I have glued my card panels down wrong before too but it still looks great. And I love how you added the slits to add a gift card to the inside. That is brilliant.

    1. Thank you, Lisa. It is nice to know that I am not alone when obvious mistakes are made. LOL! Thanks for stopping by here!
