Halloween Gift Card

I was inspired by a wonderful Stampin' Up! Demonstrator Andrea Walford. It is a Halloween gift card set.

It didn't take me long to make it and I am thrilled to case her Christmas one. I will be making plenty of those these year!

I did this project on Saturday getting prepared for my class yesterday so today I am all projected out. Whew!!!

Here's the tutorial:

  1. Take a 6 x 9" piece of Cast-A-Spell DP and score it at 3 3/4" and 7 1/2".
  2. Rotate the DP 90 degrees and score it at 1". If the DP has a pattern then make sure that you pay attention to it's orientation before you start scoring.
  3. Fold along the crease lines with a bone folder. The 1" flap that you scored along the bottome of the DP will be divided into three rectangular-shaped sections by the intersecting score lines. Cut out the left and right rectangles.
  4. On the remaining bottom 1" rectangular-shaped flap, round the two corners with a 3/16" corner rounder punch.
  5. Lay your DP on the table in front of you so that the largest flap is towards the left, the small 1 1/2" wide flap is on the right and the 1" rectangular shaped flap with the rounded corners is at the bottom.
  6. Fold the large left flap inwards. Place some Snail Adhesive on the small right flap and fold that inwards. Place some Snail adhesive on the small 1" bottom flap and fold that upwards. You've now created your "envelope".
  7. Rotate the envelope so that the top opening is towards the left and the bottom is towards the right and run it through a paper crimper. You may need to run it through twice.
  8. Punch a half circle in the front of the envelope using a 1 1/4" circle punch. Set aside.
  9. Take a Top Note die cut out of Pumpkin Pie CS using the Big Shot and Stampin' Up!'s Top Note die. Fold the top note die in half along the long side. Punch a hole in each bottom corner with a 1/16" hand held circle punch.
  10. Stamp a greeting on the front (towards the bottome right edge) in Basic Black Classic Ink. Use a Stamp-a-ma-jig if necessary (which I LOVE because it makes your stamping so perfect!).
  11. Insert a silver brad into each hole that you punched in Step 9.
  12. Wrap a 16" piece of Basic Black Grosgrain ribbon around the folded Top Note die and tie the ribbon in a knot. Trim the ends.
  13. Take a 3 1/8" x 4 5/8" piece of Whisper White CS and Stamp the pumpkin from the Holiday Best (Hostess Level 1) stamp set, in Pumpkin Pie, and Garden Green Stampin' Write Markers.
  14. Mat the Whisper White CS piece onto a 3 1/4" x 4 3/4" piece of Pumpkin Pie CS using Snail adhesive.
  15. Punch out a tab from a piece of Cast-A-Spell DP using the Round Tab punch. Fold the tab in half and center and stick it to the top of the Pumpkin Pie CS tag using Snail Adhesive.
  16. Insert the tag into the DP envelope pouch and then slide it into the Top Note die "top". You're done!
