SC151 and the how to on the giftcard holders

this is my card for the SC151 I used pretty in pink basic black and WW I also used bashful blue and celery the stamp set is to much of a good thing and all the flowers leaves and butterfly are popped up I hope you like!!!!
so many people have asked for the how to on the gift cards that I have been making and that makes me happy I love it when I make something that others also want to make!! So here we go. the base of the card is a very simple 4"x6" and it is scored at 3"
the gift card insert is 4" x 2 1/2" I scored 1/8" on both sides and one the bottom. make sure you cut the remaining squares left over in both corner's out you don't need them. before you fold all of your scored sides in find your center at 2" make a tiny mark and with your 1 1/4" circle punch cut out the notch it makes it so much easier to get the gift card out. then fold the sides first then the bottom it makes a much cleaner look. sticky strips work the best to hold your insert in the card but just use what you have!!!!!!
go ahead and mat and stamp the card how ever you want then it is time to do the belly band.
you will need a 1 1/2" x 7" strip of CS you can layer if you want the score lines need to be at 1/16" under 2" on both sides then you glue the center to the back of your card chose what ever decorative closure you would like to use I used my SU scalloped punch and two circle punches. glue the top half of the closure to the top part of the belly band and then on the under side were the closer and the band over lap add your Velcro closure then do the same on the bottom part of the band!!! then this card is done!!!!! I hope you cane under stand my directions this is the first time I have done this for y'all!!!!

On this card there is no belly band and it is cut just a little different but when finished they are the same size!!!!the base for this one is 3" x 10" and scored at 3 1/2" and 2 /12" from ether end use what ever circle cutting system you my have to round the top and decorate how you see fit!!!! the inside is just a tiny different as well!! the insert in this card is 3" x 5/8" scored at 1/8" on both sides and the bottom!!! the rest is the same as the card on top!!!

I would really like to see the gift card holders if you chose to use mine so leave me the link where I can view them in the comment section!!!
