Gift for You Card with Gift Bow Die

One of my favorite swaps from Founder's Circle was Sharon Armstrong's card, which was a simplified (and much easier!) version of the gift-shaped card that Shelli demonstrated at Convention and I re-created here. Here's my version of the Simple Gift Card. You could easily add a gift card with a glue dot to turn this into a gift card holder.

Pin It!
Here are the pieces I used for this card:
  • 5-1/2" x 8-1/2" Gumball Green (die cut with Gift Bow Die and assembled)
  • 5" x 8-1/2" Crumb Cake Cardstock (scored at 2-1/8" x 6-3/8")
  • 4" x 5" Whisper White cardstock
  • 1-1/2" x 5" Season of Style Designer Paper (I trimmed it down from the piece pictured above)
  • Tag
The Designer Paper is glued over the gate fold in the Crumb Cake cardstock to cover the seam. I did not adhere the bottom of the card closed, but you could if you wanted it to be more of a pocket. The box is adhered to the top of the Whisper White card with Sticky Strip. I laid the tag on the cardstock before I put the bow down so that the tag is secure under the bow.
