Bombs Away Birthday

Today’s project is a quick and easy gift card holder using the Bombs Away Birthday Photopolymer Stamp Set (133411).

Bombs Away Birthday Gift Card Holder

Would you believe that the trim I used for this project is from the Witches’ Brew Designer Series Paper pack in the Holiday Catalog? Well it is – I’ve made several non-holiday specific items using the patterns in this package.

How’d I make this gift card holder? Well it was easy – I took a piece of Real Red Card Stock that measured 6″ x 7 3/4″ and scored it at 3 1/4″ and 6 1/2″ and then folded it to make my basic holder. I added a strip of my Witches’ Brew Designer Series Paper that measured 6″ x 3/4″ to the top flap. Stamped the sentiment in VersaMark and used Black Embossing Powder on the bottom flap. (Make sure you fold it first so that you know which flap is which – LOL.)

For the Belly Band I stamped my “Happy Birthday bomb” in Real Red on Very Vanilla card stock and cut it out using the Deco Labels Collection Framelits. I also ran a piece of Basic Black card stock through the Big Shot at the same time using the next largest Deco Labels Collection Framelits die.

I cut a piece of the same Witches’ Brew DSP 1″ x 7″ I used for the trim and adhered one end to the Basic Black Deco Label on top side. Closed my gift card holder and just wrapped it around, lightly scoring it with my fingers as I went, until I got back to the Deco Label again. (Don’t make this too tight since you want to be able to slide it on and off the holder.) I adhered the second end and then placed my “Happy Birthday bomb” image on top to hide where the Designer Series Paper met.

Then all you need to do is add your gift card – How easy is that right?
