Merry + Bright Tri-Fold Gift Card Holder

I give out quite a few gift cards during the holidays and I thought it would be fun to jazz up the presentation a bit by creating a tri-fold gift card holder. It may not be as fun as tearing open a wrapped gift, but opening a card like this is sure to bring a smile to the recipient’s face.

I started out with 10″ x 5 1/2″ piece of kraft cardstock and scored folding lines at 3 3/8″ and 6 3/4″. On the outside two flaps, I cut diagonal lines, so that when the card is shut, all three panels of the card are visible. I covered the middle panel with a piece of pool cardstock and the right side panel with green cardstock.

As you can see when the card is opened, there is a perfect spot for a gift card! A couple of mini glue dots will do the trick to keep the gift card in place.

I have to admit I may have had way too much fun creating the adorable snow jar using the Winter Scene clear stamp set. The images work so well together and fit perfectly to create a winter scene. I heat embossed all images onto vellum and then die-cut the jar using the coordinating DI083 Jar Frame Cut.

And for a little background interest I stamped the CG681 Candy Stripe Bold Prints with VersaMark ink. I think the diagonal lines of the stamp coordinate perfectly with the diagonal lines created by the tri-fold.

So, if you’re giving gift cards this holiday season, I encourage you to make the presentation special. They will feel like the card itself is part of the gift!
