My husband asked me to make a card for him for a coworker who is battling cancer. He wanted it to hold a gift card to a restaurant.
This is my go to card “formula” for a quick & easy gift card holder:
Card base: 4 1/4 x 11 scored at 2 and 5 1/2.
Inside layer for sentiment: 4 x 5 1/4
DSP Layers: 4 x 3 1/4 (front), 4 x 1 3/4 (gift pocket), and 4 x 2 (inside).
I used the 2017- 2019 In Color, Powder Pink, and the Fresh Florals Designer Series Paper Stack. The Sunshine Wishes Thinlits Dies had the perfect word die to go with the Support Ribbon Framelits. I used the Multipurpose Adhesive Sheets to adhere a piece of Whisper White Cardstock to foam then cut it out with the die and glued it to the front panel. (*You can get a similar effect by cutting the die several times and gluing them together.)
I love all the different designs in the Fresh Florals Designer Series Paper Pack. They all work together. I used 2 designs on the card and another one on the envelope.
You could easily adapt this card for any gift giving occasion by changing the DSP and the sentiment. Great for birthdays, holidays, graduations, etc.
You can purchase the products used to make today’s card from my online store. Click HERE to shop or click on the images below.
Have a wonderful day!

Love that Fresh Floral DSP; hope something like it is available in the next round of In Colors. The card is great; the pocket for a gift card is perfect~what a thoughtful gesture on your husband’s part. Will be CASE-ing this for a fundraising event for my local Cancer Crusaders if you don’t mind. Thank you as always for the never-ending inspiration.
Fresh and lovely fits the bill. This is a great one to CASE for the gift card holder and it is just a great formula and it showcases DSP well. Such a wonderful gesture on your husband’s part and for you to make her such a wonderful card. She will love it! Thanks for the inspiration.
Beautiful card…so delicate and fresh. Your husband is very kind and thoughtful….she will love it.
