At this weeks Coffee and Cards we made a Gift Voucher Card using a fancy fold. It is an incredibly simple card to make, but looks fabulous when put together. It will hold a gift card or voucher under the flap.
We used a selection of Designer Series Papers with coordinating card stock. The base of the card is half a sheet of A4 Basic White cut at 28cm x 10.5cm, scored at 14cm and 21cm and the folds burnished with a bone folder.
A piece of coordinating card stock ( green in our case) is cut at 13 cm x 9.5cm and another Basic White piece is cut at 25cm x9.5cm and then scored at 12.5cm, folded in half and burnished. Finally, a piece of DSP is cut measuring 12cm x 8.5cm.
Assemble by sticking the smaller Basic White piece onto the green card stock, with the fold at the top. Onto this white piece neatly stick the piece of DSP, leaving an even boarder. Next stick the entire piece onto the top half of your original Basic White card base with the lower half being the one with the score line across it. This is the top half of the card made.
The lower half of the card uses a piece of coordinating DSP 9.5cm x 6.5cm adhered onto the bottom quarter of the card. ( See photo above) . A button is created by sticking a 4cm circle of DSP onto a matching 5cm circle of card stock. Adhere this to the very bottom of the card in the centre using a row of mini dimensionals along the lower edge of the back of the card stock. This allows the top part of the card to tuck in behind the button to support the card when it is stood.
The inside of the card is completed by creating a pocket for a gift card and stamping a suitable sentiment of your choice. The pocket measures 12cm x 8.5cm, and I punched a half circle from the top using the 2″ circle punch. You could simply draw around the right sized item and cut with scissors. Do remember when you glue this pocket down to apply glue to ONLY 3 sides and not too much either. The top must be left open to slip in the gift card or Amazon voucher.Product List
I hope you enjoy making your own Gift Voucher card. It is a great way to use up those smaller pieces of DSP that you frequently get left with.
