Beautiful in the Making 3: Mother’s Day Gift Card Holder

Hi everyone!

Can you believe how fast this year is flying by? Mother’s Day is coming up on May 11th, so we thought we’d put together the perfect little handmade gift card holder for Mom!

This project is really great to send gift cards for any occasion from birthdays to graduations!

· Yellow card base and pink card stock from the Anna Griffin Perfect Palette Card Making Kit:
· Anna Griffin Lace Trimmings Collection large flourish die and Camilla Lace embossing border folder:
· White or ivory card stock
· Lace border punch from the Anna Griffin Interchangeable Border Punch Collection:
· Anna Griffin Cottage Roses 3D Stickers
· Floral paper from the Anna Griffin French Floral Papers Collection
· Anna Griffin Nearest & Dearest Sentiment Sticker Collection “For My Mother” sentiment
· Cream ribbon
· Cream button
· Tab punch

1.   Trim a 4 3/4” x 6 3/4” panel of floral patterned paper (we used text weight paper from our French Floral Papers Collection). Adhere to yellow Perfect Palette card base.

2.   Die cut large flourish element from white or cream card stock.

3.   Adhere die cut to card by wrapping ends of flourish around to backside and inside or card base, leaving center portion without adhesive so a tag can be inserted.

4.   Affix “for my mother” sticker to center of flourish.  Accent with flower sticker.

5.   Trim a 4” x 5 1/2” piece of pink Perfect Palette card stock.  Create tag shape by trimming upper corners.

6.   Punch bottom edge of tag. Emboss just above punched edge with Camilla Lace embossing border folder. Use a tab punch to punch tabs to hold gift card, or secure gift card with a bit of removable adhesive.

7.   Add ribbon tab and button to tag top.

8.   Insert gift card and slide entire tag behind die cut flourish.

I hope you enjoy making this project!

We’re going to take a couple of weeks off from our Beautiful in the Making project series to show you all of the amazing new products coming up on HSN on May 14th.

See you next week for the first preview (there may be some giveaways too!)
