Fall Gift Card Holder Card - November Make and Take 4

Today I have for you the fourth November Make and Take project. I didn't get a chance to play with the sketch from yesterday. I hope to do that tonight so you can see the sketch and my card tomorrow. This card is the more masculine card. Take a look:

Stamps: Autumn Splendor, Teeny Tiny Wishes
Cardstock: Cajun Craze, Whisper White, Watercolor Paper
Ink: Daffodil Delight, Cajun Craze, Pumpkin Pie, Black Stazon
Accessories: Swirls Texturez Plate, Aqua Painter, Stampin' Sponge, 1/8" Pumpkin Pie Taffeta Ribbon, Chocolate Chip Marker

The card base is Cajun Craze cardstock cut at 4 1/4" x 8 1/2" and scored at 4 1/4". The next layer is Whisper White cardstock cut at 4 1/8" x 4 1/8" that was run through the Big Shot on the swirls Texturez plate. The greeting from Teeny Tiny Wishes was stamped in Cajun Craze ink in the bottom right hand corner of the Whisper White cardstock and it was adhered to the card front.

The next layer is Cajun Craze cardstock cut at 3 3/4" x 5 1/2" and scored at 2 3/4". The cardstock was folded on the score line and the back was adhered to the card front close to the top of the card. Since I already had them I added a 2 5/8" x 3 5/8" envelope on the inside of the flap. You could also add a small strip at the bottom of the inside with 1/4" red tape and it would still work to hold the gift card.

The Watercolor Paper was cut at 2 1/2" x 3 1/2". The leaf from Autumn Splendor was stamped in Black Stazon. The leaf was colored in by using the ink pad and Aqua Painters with Daffodil Delight, Pumpkin Pie, and Cajun Craze. The edges were sponged with Pumpkin Pie and Cajun Craze ink and the panel was adhered to the card front. A piece of 1/8" Pumpkin Pie Taffeta ribbon was tied around the entire card front. The ribbon was left loose so that while its over the leaf flap it holds the flap closed hiding the gift card inside. You just slide the ribbon down the card and you can open the flap. Here you can see the inside of the flap:

This is so much fun having a regular card and a gift card holder all in one. Come back tomorrow to see what I have to share with you! Have fun stamping!
