Gift Card Fun

Hello everyone!  I am so excited to share with you a fabulous fun fold gift card holder.  I received this card as part of a Fun Fold card swap from fellow demonstrator Jennifer Walsh.  I fell in love with this fold when I received it because it looks like a regular card until you open it up!

This is the card that I received from Jennifer Walsh.  Her card features the Daisy Lane Stamp Set from the Annual Catalog and the Well Dressed Designer Series paper from the January to June Mini-Catalog.

Gift Card Fun Fold 4B


Here is the first card I made.  I used the Butterfly Gala stamp set and the Artistry Blooms Design Series Paper from the Annual Catalog.  (Both of these items will be retiring from the Annual Catalog May 3, 2021.)  Opening the card gives the recipient a surprise with a gift card tucked inside.

Here are two more cards featuring the Artistry Blooms Designer Series Paper.  The card on the left features the Floral Essence stamp set and the card on the right features the Ridiculously Awesome stamp set, both from the Annual Catalog.  (Both of these stamp sets and the designer series paper will be retiring on May 3, 2021.)
