This fun card can be adapted for any occasion, and it can even be a gift card holder!




Supplies:

8 ½ x 11 Pop Tones cardstock (I used Blue Raspberry as the card, Whipped Cream for the stamped pieces, and Grape Jelly for the slide-out section).

Stamps and Inks (I used Close to My Heart’s Black and Sunset inks and Party Animal Acrylix stamp set)

9 ½ x 7 ½” patterned paper (I used CTMH’s Hooligans paper)

Adhesive- I used Tombow, pop dots and liquid glue

Ribbon – about 5”

1 ¼” circle punch (I used Close to My Heart’s)

Stapler

Other embellishments as desired – (I used a chipboard number, flock, adhesive glitter dots)





Step 1:

Score the cardstock you’ve chosen for your card on the 3 ½” and 7 ½” marks on the 11” side. Using bone folder, crease folds well.


Step 2:

Mark the center of one side of the middle panel of the card. Position a 1 ¼” circle punch centered on the mark. Punch a semi-circle from the middle panel.


Step 3. Folding one side in at a time, use the center panel as a guide to punch semi-circles on the other two panels. ** NOTE** Please do one panel at a time. If you try to punch all three sides at once, you could damage your punch!



Step 4: Adhere the edges and one end of the card together. Use the bone folder to ensure all edges line up neatly.



Step 5: Adhere patterned paper to the card base. I wrapped the paper around the card first and used my bone folder to make crisp score lines.



Step 6: Cut a 3 ½” x 7 ½” piece of complementary cardstock for your pull-out part of the card.



Step 7: Stamp images on a 3” x 5” piece of neutral cardstock as desired. I used 2 way glue to add flock to the monster images (which makes them fuzzy!) I also stamped the image and used a pop dot to give it dimension.



Step 8: Adhere stamped images to a 3 ¼”x 5 ¼” mat, then adhere to card front. Embellish as desired. Attach the ribbon, folded in half, by stapling the ribbon to the back of your pull out section. You can use glue dots to hold a gift card onto the pull-out section, if desired.





Hope you enjoyed this fun project! Both Whipped Cream and Blue Raspberry PopTones Cardstock is on sale now at CutCardstock!



Happy Stamping!
