Animal Outing Gift Card Holder

I have another sweet little project from the Animal Outing suite of products.  Like my post HERE, I used this fun and unique collection for a non-traditional themed baby card.  This time, however, I used them to create a gift card holder for a baby shower gift.

Even though the Mini Treat Bag thinlits are retired, they are still my go-to to create gift card holders.  I think they make the perfect presentation for any occasion.

The tag was punched with the Scalloped Tag Punch once in Calypso Coral card stock and again in Whisper White.  I cut the Whisper White card stock at 1 1/2″ and centered it in the punch to create the layering.  Two small strips of DSP are added to each side of the Whisper White tag before gluing it to the Calypso Coral tag.

The kangaroo is stamped and cropped from the Animal Outing bundle and colored with Stampin’ Blends.  The small heart is from a die in the Mini Treat Bag thinlits.

The inside card with the gift card pocket is Calypso Coral card stock measuring 3 1/2″ X 6 1/2″ and is scored on the longer side at 2″.  I glued a small tag found in the Wood Crate framelits to the middle of this layer to use a little pull.  Another pattern from the Animal Expedition Designer Series Paper collection is cut at 3 3/8″ x 4 3/8″ and glued to the upper portion of the pocket.  After folding the 2″ side up, I used a small strip of Tear and Tape to secure the sides to create a pocket. The sentiment is from the Special Celebrations stamp set.

Here you can see how the gift card fits in the pocket.

I’m giving this as a gift for a baby shower, but this would make a fun gift for a child by just changing the sentiments.

Thanks for stopping in today!

Take care,
