Folded Leaf Pocket Gift Card

July 9, 2020

Hello everyone, it´s Sanna Lippert here again with a July card tutorial for! When I look at the Planner Essentials line, I think of ways of using them in cardmaking. I created a gift card with Planner Essential die cut dies for this particular card.

So for this card I combined dies from the Planner Pocket 3 die set as well as used the Budding Florals from the Art Journal line and the lovely Leaf Pocket die from the ModaScrap line. Here is how I did the card:

Step 1: Die cut the Leaf Pocket from a piece of patterned paper and fold the flaps towards the inside on the back. Apply Clear Double Sided Tape on the folded flaps.
Step 2: Next die cut a slip of kraft cardstock using the small “tab” piece of the Planner Pocket 3 set. This will be the gift card base.
Step 3: Now die cut 2 pieces of the “cover tabs” from the same patterned paper used for the leaf pocket. Fold along the folding line. Die cut a lined paper with the bigger rounded piece to create a space for your gift card text.

Step 4: Take a piece of kraft cardstock and place the die cut and folded leaf pocket on top and make folding marks alongside the pocket – add 1-2 mm space on both sides.
Step 5: Fold the base and cut in size. Now cut slightly smaller pieces of patterned paper to matt all the sides of the card base.
Step 6: Die cut the leaves using the Budding Florals leaf die. Next add small strips of Clear Double Sided Adhesive Sheet on a strip of kraft cardstock and die cut two Poppies. Apply Silk Microfine Glitter onto the tape areas.
Step 7: Adhere and assembly all pieces on place (see the video for more precise steps) and add a stamped sentiment using Build Your Own Sentiments 1 stamp set. Add twine and your card is done.

To give you a better idea of each and every step, I´ve again recorded a start-to-finish video for you to watch. Hope you like it!

See you again next month with another card project tutorial!

Happy crafting,
xxx, Sanna

Making Gift Cards from Scraps

June 20, 2014

Hi! It’s Kelly Booth here. If you’re like me you have lots of scraps lying around from previous projects.  Mine usually end up all over the place before they hit the trash. The new Character Die sets by Karen Burniston, coming out mid-July, are a perfect way to use scraps and make gift enclosure cards. Tip: If you can’t find envelopes sized to fit, use an envelope punch board or open an existing envelope and use it for a tracing template.


Here are photos of the new die sets:

To create the gift cards:

1. Die cut two solid bodies for each character out of a color cardstock you would like to use for your characters. I used white cardstock for Chilly and Poppy and green cardstock for Hoppy.

2. Lay one of the bodies on your score board and score about a 1/2 inch from the top, like this.


3. Put adhesive on the back above the creased line and adhere the second body part to this.
The back will bend and have the creased line and your front will remain flat. Here is a photo of what it should look like.


4. Decorate the fronts using the rest of the fun dies included in the Character and Props Die sets. I had some paper scraps that had Silk Microfine Glitter polished onto them and it was perfect for the Props die cuts. (Bow on Poppy, glasses on both Chilly and Poppy, and Hoppy’s lips and mouth!)
Chilly was created using some leftover scraps of Velvet Adhesive Sheets in  Black, White, Yellow and Red. To jazz him up, I cut some glasses from a scrap of paper with Silk Microfine Glitter polished onto it.


Hoppy was created using a piece of leftover cardstock inked with distress ink then water splashed. I used the lips from the Props set for fun.


For Poppy I used pink cardstock scraps and cut some glasses and a bow from the Props set out of Fuchsia Silk Microfine Glitter scraps and then added some glittery black pearls for her eyes and pink pearls for accents on her bow and glasses.


What do you think? They are so easy to create and a fun way to use up some of your scraps.

Thank you for stopping by the blog today. I hope you have a wonderful day!
