Father's Day Gift Card Holder

Here's the card I made my dad for Father's Day yesterday. I had one last card base from my Manly Moments Paper Pumpkin Kit, and decided to use it to make my dad's Father's Day Card. His golf bag fell apart on him, so he asked for a gift card to a local sporting goods store. So, I decided to turn this card base into a gift card holder.

I used one of my favorite stamp sets, Waterfront. I really like the nature scenes you can make with this stamp set! It makes whatever you make a watercolor masterpiece. The "Happy Father's Day" was stamped with the stamp set that came in the Manly Moments Paper Pumpkin Kit.

  • Manly Moments Card Base:  Tri-Fold base
  • Mossy Meadow:  3" x 4-1/4" (largest mat)
  • Crumb Cake:  2-5/8" x 3-7/8" (narrow mat) & 3-1/2" x 3/4" (banner)
  • Very Vanilla:  2-1/2" x 3-3/4" (main image)
  • Copper Trim:  (2) 4"

  1. Put Tear & Tape Adhesive onto the back of the plaid section, along the two short edges. With the white side facing up, fold the plaid section up along the score line. Remove the paper-backing from the Tear & Tape Adhesive, and attach the plaid section to the card base. This will form the pouch for the gift card. If you want to write something inside, you can write it on the top half of the card base. Fold the wood section down to close the card.
  2. Stamp the long, "z"-like stamp from the Waterfront Stamp Set across the bottom of the Very Vanilla piece using the Old Olive Classic Stampin' Pad. Without re-inking, stamp it a couple more times to fill in the area to make the ground. Stamp the tree trio stamp two times across the ground using the Mossy Meadow Classic Stampin' Pad. 
  3. Stamp the long, narrow stamp above the ground using the Pool Party Classic Stampin' Pad. Stamp it above the first, without re-inking. Repeat this step two more times to finish the lake. Stamp the mountain stamp onto the center of the piece, and above the lake, using the Crumb Cake Classic Stampin' Pad. Stamp it again on each side of the first mountain image without re-inking. Stamp the "Happy" Stamp from the stamp set in the Manly Moments Paper Pumpkin Kit onto the top of the piece using the Mossy Meadow ink pad. Attach the piece to the center of the Crumb Cake narrow mat piece. Wrap one of the Copper Trim pieces around the bottom of the image, attaching the trim ends to the back of the Crumb Cake piece using scotch tape.
  4. Attach it to the center of the Mossy Meadow piece. Attach the top three-fourths of the piece to the wood-like panel of the card base. Tie the other Copper Trim piece onto the left side of the attached trim piece using a single knot. Trim the Copper Trim ends at an angle.
  5. Stamp the "Father's Day" stamp from the Manly Moments kit onto the center of the smallest Crumb Cake piece using the Mossy Meadow ink pad. Using Paper Snips, cut a triangle out of each end of the piece to form the banner. Score a vertical line next to each point of the cut-out triangles. Score another vertical line about a 1/8" in from both of the first score lines. Fold the two inner score lines down, and then fold the two outer ones up. Put Stampin' Dimensionals onto the back of the banner (the center section), and attach it across the image layer, just below "Happy".

Use SNAIL Adhesive when attaching, unless stated otherwise.
