Graduation Gift Card Holder

Graduation Gift Card Holder

Spring is here, and summer is following quickly! (Especially here in Arizona where the temps are expected to hit the mid-90s. this week) Get prepared for spring graduations and spring and summer weddings.

Be sure to have some gift card holders on hand when you get those invites in the mail!

Paper crafting lends itself to a variety of gift card designs. I’ve shared several different varieties in past blog posts. Check them out here and here.

Today, I offer yet a another design. I grabbed this idea from two of my team members who made cards for our recent team gathering. The card below features a sentiment from the Slim Sayings stamp set and the Hey Sports Fan 12 x 12 Designer Series Paper, both found in Stampin’ Up!’s January-June 2022 Mini Catalog.

Graduation Gift Card Holder Cutting Directions

  • Start by cutting a piece of 8 1/2 x 11 card stock in half the long way. You have a piece that measures 11 x 4 1/4.
  • Score this piece at 1 1/4 inches and 5 1/2 inches.
  • Fold the card in half and then fold the small piece “inside” the card to form a place to hold the gift card.
  • Decorate accordingly.

Watch the video at the end of this post to see how this one comes together.

I recently returned from Stampin’ Up!’s incentive trip to Maui! What a treat! The weather was beautiful, and the company spoiled the earners and their guests. I truly thank all of my friends, customers, team, and supportive husband for this awesome opportunity.

The event focuses mainly on relaxing, recharging, and connecting with other demonstrators. We didn’t have any planned stamping events, but we did exchange swap cards. To participate, I made 26 of one card. (See my card here.)

Then, we receive 25 different cards back! It’s so fun to see the variety of ideas presented by other demonstrators. (Review the video of the cards I received here. Hint: the card showcase takes place near the end of the video.)

I really liked a card I received from Selene Kempton; it doubles as a gift card holder. I changed up the Designer Series Paper and the sentiment to make it my own.

My version uses the following products from Stampin’ Up!’s 2021-2022 Annual Catalog:

  • Expressions in Ink 12 x 12 Designer Series Paper
  • Sentiment from Peaceful Moments
  • Fine Art Gold Ribbon
  • Gold Foil Paper

Dimensions to cut the card stock, working from the top down:

  • 4 1/4 x 2 3/4 — your choice of Designer Series Paper
  • 4 1/2 x 3 — colored coordinating card stock
  • 7 1/2 x 4 3/4, scored at 1 inch and 4 1/4 inches — white “base”
  • 5 1/4 x 3 3/4 — colored coordinating card stock mat
  • 1 x 4 3/4 — Designer Series Paper for the inside trim piece
