Fun Fold Gift Card Holder

I often find myself giving gift cards for birthdays, weddings and graduations.  I’ve had to get beyond the idea that it seems a bit impersonal, and realize often times it’s the most practical.  I love to be able to add my own personal touch by making a special card to hold the gift.  Today, I’m sharing a quick and easy card with a gift card pocket, yet it’s super cute and looks much more complicated than it really is!


I love the Timeless Tulips Stamp set.  It’s quick and simple, yet so very pretty! I stamped this tulip on one of the prints from the Playing With Patterns Designer Series Paper. It was the perfect variation of color for the flower.


The little hidden pocket on the inside is the perfect place to hold a gift card.



I’ve done a brief video sharing how to cut and fold the card.

Playing With New Products! Flowers For Every Season – Memories & More Card Pack

Sometimes you just need something quick and simple, Using Memories & More Cards are a great option.  I love working with The Flowers For Every Season Card Pack.  There’s such a variety of color and flowers, you can use for any occasion as well as any season!  Here are a few ideas.  The colors used in this card pack are Stampin’ Up!’s new 2020-2022 in colors.

I made up a quick little box that holds the cards.  Such a fun gift for a friend!

Just add a sentiment of your choice and a few embellishments to finish off your card.  This “thinking of You” card uses a sentiment from the Rooted In Nature Stamp set.

I stepped this card up just a bit by fussy cutting a few flowers and adding some die cut sprigs to this memories & more card.

Adding just a few die cut sprigs from the Forever Flourishing dies and a small bow is just what this card needed to finish it off.

Adding a small black layer behind both the memories and more card as well as the whisper white sentiment gives this just a little added pop.

I wanted this card to say something different than what was printed on the memories and more card.  Using one of the frame label stickers included in the pack, I was able to stamp what I wanted, make a layer to go behind it and cover the sentiment perfectly.

Ornate Garden Suite – Class To Go

These past few months of Sheltering at Home has given us all a bit of time to reflect, reprioritize and learn to get things done differently.  Posting here on my Blog has never been a strength of mine.  To be honest, to sit and write about myself and things that I’ve been working on has never been within my comfort zone.  Technology in general just intimidates me!  But with a bit more time on my hands, and the need to stay in touch with my stamping friends I’ve been pulled from the comfort of my craft room and have decided to take this opportunity to learn a few new things…. so with that, as well as making a commitment to myself to connect more on my blog, I’ve also written my very first tutorial and I’m offering a Class To Go along with it.

I’m excited to share my Ornate Garden Suite Class To Go –

Make 4 beautiful cards, plus a card holder/folder using the Ornate Garden Suite new from Stampin’ Up!  You will love making these projects with this class to go.  The tutorial includes easy to follow step by step instructions.  There are 4 purchasing options for you to choose from.
