Holiday Joy Gift Card Money Holder

Directions:

  • The tri-fold card was made from a 5 ½” x 9 ¾” piece of Kraft Cardstock. I scored the cardstock on the 3 ¼” and 6 ½” mark.
  • Adhere the green plaid layer to the gold cardstock layer. Adhere onto the front of the tri-fold card.
  • Assemble and adhere the die-cut pieces of the coffee cup onto the front of the card. The red plaid pieces and vellum coffee lid have been made into stickers using a Xyron Creative Station.  The “coffee sleeve” was embossed using the sweater embossing folder.
  • Remove the backing off the gridded transfer paper. Apply the transfer paper over the word “Holiday”.  Gently rub over the transfer paper to make sure the word has transferred.  Apply onto the top of the card.
  • Add clear adhesive enamel dots to the lid of the coffee cup.
  • The transfer paper is reusable. Use the transfer paper to apply the small snowflake onto the cup.
  • On the inside of the card… Open the trifold card. Adhere the thin red plaid adhesive strip to the top of the cream cardstock layer.  (Leave a 1/8” margin on the top) Trim the excess paper strip.  Using the transfer paper, transfer the word “Enjoy” under the red strip.
  • On the third-panel measure and mark 1 ½” on the outside edge of the panel. On the inside fold of the third panel, measure and mark 2 ½”.  Draw a line from the 2 ½” mark to the 1 ½” mark.  Cut along the line and the inside fold to create a diagonal pocket flap.  Adhere the thin green strip to the top of the diagonal panel and trim excess.
  • Punch a small hole in the center of the green panel and attach the small cream tag with twine. Apply the small red plaid heart to the center of the tag.
  • Add adhesive to the bottom and side of the flap. Adhere flap to the center panel.

A Coffee Themed Card for Mom

Directions:

  • Die-cut the pieces from the Coffee Die Set out of scrapbook paper using the Crossover II Die-Cutting Machine.
  • Assemble the die-cut pieces on a layered card front.
  • For the base of the gift card holder, I cut a piece of cardstock 5 1/4″ x 9 3/4″.  Score lengthwise every 3 1/4″.
  • Adhere a 3″ x 5″ piece of green polka dot paper onto the middle panel.
  • On the third panel, cut down the side approx. 2 1/2″.  Cutaway the remaining section of the panel on a diagonal to create a flap.
  • Adhere the bottom and the short side of the flap to the middle panel to create a pocket.
  • Decorate the pocket with a flower that was “fussy cut” from the floral paper.  Add a small strip to edge the pocket.

Die-Cutting letters using the Crossover II.

Directions Continued:

  • For the letters on the front of the card, I used gold foiled paper.  To make the letters stickers, I ran the gold foiled paper through the Xyron Creative Station*.  As you run the paper through the machine it adds a complete layer of adhesive to the back of the paper.
  • Die-Cut the letters to spell “MOM” using the Alphabet Die Set and the
  • Die-cut the gold foiled paper (with adhesive added to the back) using the alphabet die and the Crossover II Die-Cutting System*.
  • Remove the backing off the back of the letters and stick them onto the front of the card.
  • Tie gold thread around the front of the card and tie it with a knot.

LETTER ALIGNING TIP…If you’re a perfectionist like I am and want to align the letters as straight as possible. Use Gridded Transfer Paper* to help you line up the letters. Place the front of the foiled letters on the adhesive side of the transfer paper, remove the backing off of the foiled paper and transfer the letters onto the front of the card.
