Here is the inside of the card! My favorite way to do a quick and easy pocket for gift card holders? The 3" x 3" Whisper White Envelopes from the Holiday Catalog! I tuck the flap inside the envelope (or you could cut it off if you prefer) and attach the pocket inside the card with Tear & Tape Adhesive so that it is strong enough to hold the gift card and stays put. The greeting on the envelope is from the Merry Little Labels stamp set and reads "Special Delivery From the North Pole" which perfectly matches our cute little elf on the front!
Old Olive 5 1/2" x 8 1/2" (see scoring directions below).
Real Red 2 3/4" x 4" (front piece for elf layer - attach to the card with Tear & Tape), 2 1/8" x 3 1/8" (layer for inside greeting), 2 @ 1 1/8" x 5 1/8" (layer for inside designer paper pieces).
Thick Whisper White 2 1/2" x 3 1/2" for Elf stamp. (if you are using Stampin' Blends alcohol markers thick card stock is best).
Whisper White 2" x 3" for inside message
Christmas Around The World Paper: Four pieces 1" x 5" (I used 2 of the red and white stripe and 2 of the peppermint candy pattern).
3" x 3" Whisper White Envelope for gift card pocket - attach with Tear & Tape to inside of card
Fun fold directions:
Start with a piece of card stock 5 1/2" x 8 1/2" (I used Old Olive for this card, but this photo was for a different project so it is a different color).
With the 8 1/2" side at the top of the scoring tool, score at 3/4", 2 1/4", 6 1/4", and 7 3/4".
Use the bone folder to crease and fold on the score lines. The two end folds (3/4" wide) are folded the opposite way (accordion fold) of the other folds (see the photo below).
I placed my piece of Tear & Tape on the left Old Olive folded panel to attach the Real Red piece so that it did not show and so that I did not accidentally glue my card closed! I used the Stampin' Blends alcohol markers to color my elf - I love these markers!! Such a smooth finish with no marker lines - and if I accidentally color outside the lines I can use the Stampin' Blends Color Lifter to erase my mistake!!
