Forever Fern Pop Up Gift Card Holder

Today’s thank you card is a pop up gift card holder for a friend who came to my rescue this summer when a major home project took a disastrous turn! The So Sentimental stamp set had the perfect sentiment!Stampin' Up! So Sentimental and Forever Greenery pop up gift card holder
I have made this pop up gift card holder before; however, I used cardstock instead of designer series paper. I chose to use the Forever Fern Designer Series Paper because it matched the restaurant gift card. I just love it when everything coordinates!

Stampin' Up! Forever Greenery pop up gift card holder

I stamped the inside with the greenery stamp from the Forever Fern stamp set using Garden Green ink. Then I added color to the leaves using Old Olive Stampin’ Blends. I still have plenty of room to add my personal message.

Stampin' Up! Forever Fern Stamp Set and Forever Greenery pop up gift card holder

Here’s the details to make this card:

Measurements

  • Card Base (Forever Greenery Designer Series Paper): 5 1/2 x 11 scored at 4 1/4, 5 1/2, 6 3/4
  • Belly Band (Soft Sea Foam cardstock): 1 3/4 x 10

Wrap the belly band around the card and gently crease and secure with Stampin’ Seal. *It should be able to slide on and off. Emboss the belly band with the Greenery Embossing Folder for some added texture.  Adhere the sentiment layer, Garden Green Stitched So Sweetly die cut, and the Gold Laser-Cut piece together. Adhere to belly band with Stampin’ Dimensionals. Add Gilded Gems. The belly band slides off to open the card.

Chalkboard Easel Card Tutorial

Yesterday I posted several card ideas for teachers, school employees, or your favorite student. Back to school this year is certainly different during the current pandemic. With so many changes facing teachers, students, and parents, it’s nice to let them know you’re thinking of them.  Everyone loves to feel appreciated and these easel cards are quick & easy to make to brighten someone’s day!

Stampin' Up! In Good Taste thank you and inspirational chalkboard easel card card ideas for teachers or students - Jeanie Stark StampinUp

Here’s the details to create a chalkboard easel card:

Measurements

  • Card Base (Thick Very Vanilla): 4 1/4 x 11 scored at 5 1/2
  • Basic Black: 3 3/4 x 3 3/4
  • In Good Taste Designer Series Paper: 2 strips 3/4 x 4 1/4, 2 strips 3/4 x 5 1/2

Directions

  1. Fold and burnish the card base.
  2. Line up the open end of the card base at the 3/4″ mark (along the right side of the trimmer) and cut up to the 1″ mark.  Flip the card and do the same on the other side of the card.
  3. Turn the card sideways so the cut marks line up at the 1″ mark (along the right side of the trimmer). Start at 3/4″ and cut to the 3 1/2″ mark (to remove piece between the cut lines).
  4. Stamp sentiment on black cardstock with Versamark Ink and emboss with white embossing powder using the Heat Tool.
  5. Use a sponge or tissue to dab White Craft Ink around the sentiment. Swirl in a circular motion as if you were erasing a chalkboard.
  6. Adhere black piece to card base.
  7. Adhere DSP strips along the top and bottom first, then adhere DSP along the sides overlapping the top and bottom piece.
  8. Embellish chalkboard as desired.

Here’s a little more details for each one…

Stamp sets: Harvest Hellos, Celebrate Sunflowers. Die cut letters using Playful Alphabet Dies. Create medal with Layering Circles Dies, Stitched Stars Dies, and Misty Moonlight 1/4″ Ribbon.

Stamp Sets: Nothing Better Than, Daisy Lane, Forever Fern. Embellish with Stitched Stars Dies.

Stamp Sets: Free As A Bird, Ornate Thanks, Good Morning Magnolia. Die Cut greenery from Sunflowers Dies. Punch vase from Artistry Blooms Designer Series Paper using Vases Builder Punch. Create banner using Banners Pick A Punch. Flower punched from Confetti Flowers Border Punch.

Stamp Sets: Massive Thanks, Good Morning Magnolia. Create Banner using Banners Pick A Punch and Stitched Stars Dies.

It’s The Sentiment That Counts for the Pals Blog Hop

blog Hop badge Sept. 2020

Hello, welcome to the Stampin’ Pretty Pals’ Blog Hop! This month our Design Team created projects where “It’s the Sentiment that Counts.” We hope you enjoy and will be inspired by them! Don’t forget to leave comments! We love hearing from you. At the end of my post, you will find the full line-up to help you “hop” along from Pal to Pal.

During these challenging times it seems more important than ever to reach out to others to let them know you’re thinking of them. Many of my former coworkers, students, and teacher friends could use a little encouragement as they head back to school either virtually or in person. Even though today’s technology has made chalkboards a thing of the past, I wanted to create some fun chalkboard easel cards for teachers or students.Stampin' Up! In Good Taste thank you and inspirational chalkboard easel card card ideas for teachers or students - Jeanie Stark StampinUp
I used In Good Taste Designer Series Paper for these Chalkboard Easel Cards. You could also use the wood grain pattern found in the 6 x 6 Designer Series Paper Color Collections or make your own wood grain look with cardstock and the Pinewood Planks 3D Embossing Folder for some added texture.

Everyone loves to feel appreciated! I combined sentiments from several different stamp sets for my cards today. *You can see a complete list of products used below. Here’s a close up of each one.Stampin' Up! Harvest Hellos and Playful Alphabet Dies thank you card idea for a teacher -Jeanie Stark StampinUpStampin' Up! Daisy Lane, Nothing Better Than, and Forever Fern stamp sets were used to create this inspiration chalkboard easel card idea for back to school - Jeanie Stark StampinUpStampin' Up! Free As A Bird, Ornate Thanks, and Good Morning Magnolia stamp sets were used to create this teacher appreciation card idea - Jeanie Stark StampinUpStampin' Up! Massive Thanks chalkboard easel teacher thank you card idea- Jeanie Stark StampinUp
You could use a variety of sentiments for this card!  It would be great for a graduation, teacher birthday or retirement, congratulations, welcome new teacher, etc.! I bet you can think of someone to make/send these cards to.

*Tip: Chalkboard Technique – To get the chalkboard look I heat embossed the sentiment using Versamark and white embossing powder.  Then I used a sponge to dab some Whisper White Craft Ink on the black around the sentiment. Swirl in a circular motion as if you were erasing a chalkboard.

FYI…I have one of these chalk board easels that I used in my classroom.

Check back tomorrow for the complete tutorial and more ideas!

More inspiration awaits! Use the Blog Hop Line-up below to visit the rest of this month’s Design Team. My fellow Pals are excited to show you what they’ve created! Mark your calendars for our next blog hop on October 14th when our theme is “Tag, You’re It!” Participants will showcase tags or 3D items that will be great for gifts for any occasion. Don’t miss the fun! Until then, please stay safe and have fun in your craft room.
