Hello Stampers! What a crazy weather week we’ve all had! The poor East Coast…getting hit again with snow storms and the West Coast is being pounded with rain (hooray…rain is always needed here on the West Coast). While we’re all staying close to home is a great time to design some cards.
We made this card in my last class and I think the fold will be used over and over again. I got this great idea from Dawn Griffith. It looks difficult to make but it really isn’t.
I decided we needed to use some of the Sale A Bration items so I chose Celebrate You Thinlits and Beautiful Peacock. Keep in mind that Sale A Bration ends March 31st. It just so happens that the Celebrate You Thinlits will be carried over to the new Annual Catalog that will come out on June 1st.
This is the front…you can see there are endless ways to design this front piece.
I used the shadow affect with the black letters in back and Dazzling Diamonds Glimmer Paper in the front.
This is the surprise…two pockets – one for your sentiment and the other for a gift card. I love it! The best part is that this whole card is made from one sheet of 8 1/2″ x 11″.
Super gift card card…right!

Rather than try to explain how I did this card I’ll give you Dawn’s site since she does an awesome job explaining it. You will notice that my card is different in places…I didn’t use ribbon to close it, etc.
Do try this card out…it’s fun!
Happy Stamping until next Friday! Donna
