Fold and hold

Whew, it’s been an extremely busy and exciting last couple of months, but I survived (though barely, at times!). One of my last goals for the end of the school year was to make thank you cards for my children’s teachers. I wanted to incorporate a gift card holder into the cards, so I searched the web and found a bunch of innovative examples of gift card holders. I selected this tutorial by Gina Rallo (The Art of Inking).

Here is my version of her card (yup, there goes that Stampin’ Up scalloped circle punch again!):

Closeup of the belly band (I used two scalloped circles to sandwich and hide the ribbon ends):
