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:

Stamp Sets: So Sentimental (Bundle), Forever Fern  Papers:  Forever Greenery Designer Series Paper, Forever Gold Laser-Cut Specialty Paper, Garden Green, Soft Sea Foam, Pear Pizzazz, Whisper White cardstock  Inks: Garden Green, Old Olive Blends  Accessories:  Stitched So Sweetly Dies, Classic Label Punch, Greenery Embossing Folders, Gilded Gems, Tear & Tape, Stampin’ Seal, Stampin’ Dimensionals

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
  • Garden Green: 2 1/2 x 4 cut with Stitched So Sweetly Dies
  • Whisper White: 2 1/2 x 3 stamped and cut with Stitched So Sweetly Dies, 3 3/4 x 5 (inside)
  • Pear Pizzazz: 4 x 5 1/4 (inside layer)

*For assembly directions you can view the photo tutorial from my previous post HERE.

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.

A Taste of the Retiring In Colors

I am going to be sad to see the 2018-2020 bold In Colors retire! Lovely Lipstick and Blueberry Bushel are two of my favorite colors! Here’s a look at how well these colors coordinate with some of my favorite candy…peanut M&M’s. Yummilicious!

Stampin' Up! 2018-2020 In Color clear tiny treat boxes gift idea - Jeanie Stark StampinUp

These little lids for the tiny treat boxes are super quick & easy to make. Here’s the measurements:

  • Cardstock: (2) 3 1/16 x 3 1/16 scored at 1/2 on all 4 sides
  • DSP: (8) 3/8 x 2, (2) 2 x 2

Fold and burnish the cardstock along the score lines then cut and notch the end pieces (as  shown below). Adhere the DSP along the sides and middle. Then use liquid glue or Tear & Tape on the tabs to fold and secure the lid.

I stamped the sentiment from the So Sentimental Stamp Set and cut it out with the coordinating Stitched So Sweetly Dies. I adhered it inside the lid for a little surprise when they open it!

Stampin' Up! 2018-2020 In Color clear tiny treat boxes gift idea using So Sentimental Bundle - Jeanie Stark StampinUp

I added an In Color decorative button on the top of each and wrapped them all up with the coordinating grosgrain ribbons! I cut the smallest die from the Stitched So Sweetly Dies to make the buttons and bow stand out.

So here’s the deal…these colors will most likely sell out BEFORE the end of May when they retire.  Get your cardstock,  ink refills, Stampin’ Blends, ribbons, and whatever else you need now while they’re still available! Place a “Retiring In Color” order with me and I’ll send you a clear tiny treat box (along with your thank you card) so you can make your own “Taste of the In Colors”. They’re Yummilicious!!!

Counting My Blessings with Forever Blossoms

My husband, daughter, and I decided to take a drive to Washington, DC over the weekend to get out and about for a bit. (It’s only an hour drive from where we live.) Spring in our nation’s capital is my favorite time of year, especially when the cherry blossoms are in bloom! This weekend was peak season and it was a gorgeous sight to behold!

The beauty of nature is a gift to be appreciated! Usually we would get out and walk along the paths but this year (due to “social distancing”) we stayed in our car. I was inspired to create some cards for my friends!

Stampin Up Forever Blossoms and So Sentimental friend card idea - Jeanie Stark StampinUp

The Forever Blossoms stamp set and Cherry Blossoms Dies were the perfect choice to create this beautiful inspiring scene! I chose to use the sentiment and dies from the So Sentimental Bundle to cut the opening and stamp the inside of my card.

I added a touch of color to the blossoms with Stampin’ Blends.

I hope you can take a break from the crazy, get some fresh air, and enjoy the beauty of nature! Take time to count your blessings and share some handmade kindness!

Stay well, keep safe!
