Game On Gift Card Holder

Game On has become my go-to for masculine cards.  Today’s card is a birthday gift card holder.

Materials & Measurements

Card Base:

  • Cherry Cobbler card stock:   5 1/2″ x 4 1/4″
  • Plaid Tidings DSP:                  5 1/4″ x 4″

Center Panel:

  • Cherry Cobbler card stock:   9 3/4″ x 4 1/4″ , scored at 3 1/4″ & 6 1/2″
  • Gray Granite card stock:       4″ x 3″, embossed

Inside Center Panel:

  • Pocket – Cherry Cobbler card stock:   4″ x 2″, DSP:  3 3/4″ x 1 3/4″
  • Sentiment Panel – Whisper White card stock: 4″ x 3″, DSP: 4″ x 1/4″


  • Glue the plaid DSP panel to the Cherry Cobbler panel.  
  • To create the center panel, fold into three sections and glue to the center of the card base.

  • One the front section, emboss the Gray Granite card stock with the Wrapped in Texture embossing folder and glue to the center.
  • Stamp the playing card image in Cherry Cobbler ink and hand cut.  Add a Cherry Cobbler and Basic Black mat.  Glue to the embossed panel.
  • The sentiment is stamped in black ink and heat embossed in clear embossing powder.

  • When you open the center panel, the chess pieces are stamped in Gray Granite ink and hand cut.  I matted this with Basic Black card stock and glued to one of the inside panels along with 2 strips of DSP.

  • Open it again to reveal the inside sentiment and gift card pocket.
