Card Club Project #1

The 3-D project for our May Stamp Club is this cute little gift card holder.  Just in time for May graduations.  It was a quick project!  We used a 7" X 7" square, which was scored at 1 3/4" on all 4 sides. We cut away the small square from each corner and rounded the corners of each flap.  You may need to trim the sides on each flap slightly, if your holder does not lay flat when closed.  The Word Play sentiment, which will be retiring at the end of the month, was stamped in Versamark or Illuminate and Silver Embossing Powder was added and heat set. A black brad holds the cute little tassel in place.  It was made from a 1 1/2" X 2 1/4" piece of Summer Starfruit and 5" strand of Baker's Twine.  Don't forget you can dye your White Baker's Twine to match any project by using a sponge dauber and a coordinating ink pad or marker.  Such a great way to save a little money!  A
3 1/2" X 3 1/2" piece of Whisper White cardstock was stamped with the Congratulations sentiment.  You can use Glue Dots to attach a gift card.
