My friend wanted a card to look like a gift and hold a gift card for a co-worker gift exchange.
This is a fast easy card to make.
It's a base 8 1/2 x 5 1/2 folded, then remove 1 1/4 from the bottom of the card so it's now 7 1/4. Fold the card.
Whisper White inside is 5 1/4 x 4 with the Merry Christmas stamp.
Decorate the front with a layer of Whisper White 5 1/4 x 2 3/4 and the plaid is 5 x 2 1/2.
Make the belly band from 12 x 1 and run through the Big Shot with the subtle folder - just a little bit of texture. If you have only 11" paper, that's ok, you can cover the join with the circles and the tree. Wrap the belly band and stick together.
Add the circles - gold 2 1/4 and white 2 - and the stamp the tree in spruce and punch out. Add to the belly band. Add a gold star or sequin if you wish to the top of the tree.
Inside you can make a gift card holder -my real red is 4 1/4 x 2 and the plaid is 4 x 1 3/4 - glue these together, punch out a half circle with a 1, 3/4 or 1 1/8 - whatever you have! Add to the inside of the card tear n tape.
It's bright, pretty and looks like gift and a card!
