Hi there! A couple weeks back I shared some cards on the Pebbles Blog showing fun ways to incorporate gift cards into your card making. For both my cards I decided to mix things up and use both of Jen Hadfield's Homemade and Cottage Living collections. I love how well the two lines compliment each other!
My first card features a background using alternating stripes of gold glitter tape and 7/8" wide strips of patterned paper from the Cottage Living 6x6 paper pad. I then die cut the large pennant and "thank you" sentiment using the free Brannboll font and my Silhouette die-cutting machine.
For the inside, I embellished the Homemade Mini Kraft Pocket Tags with a mix of the Cottage Living rub-ons & the Homemade Phrase Tags. These little pockets are just the perfect size to hold a gift card which I thought was pretty awesome.
For my next card I turned heart die-cuts into balloons with the help of some paper string (stolen from those same Homemade Phrase Tags). For my scalloped border I used a die from the Homemade set and hid the seam behind the kraft tag.
The inside of my card features a fun fold designed to tuck a gift card into. Make sure to head over to the Pebbles Blog where I share some tips on how I created this little pocket in my card base using my Martha Stewart score board and some basic supplies you probably already have on hand.
I finished my card with some extra hearts to carry out my theme and to ensure that it is just as pretty on the inside as it is on the outside. ;)
I hope I have inspired you to incorporate interactive gift card elements in your next card making project. Thanks so much for stopping by. :)
