Sizzix Triple Play Blog Hop Week #5~Gift Card Holder

We are in Week #5 of the Sizzix blog hop and it was a fun "die." We worked with a Sizzix die designed by Karen Burniston, called "Gift Card Holder." It may look a little intimidating, but, it isn't. Here is a link to see how to put it together!

Here are the items I used:
Sizzix Die #656740 Gift Card Holder "for you" 3D pop up, designed by Karen Burniston

Linen Card Stock, Die Cuts with a View

1/4" double stick tape, strong

9" x 12" piece of fabric

Craft Bond Glue Stick, Elmers

Black "The Fabric Brush Marker," Marvy

"Gold" spray paint, Krylon

"Pale gold Leafing Pen," Krylon

Glue Dots, mini 3/16"

Checkerboard ribbon flowers

6-1/2" x 11-1/2" card stock

9" x 12" sheet, Steam-a-Seam, The Warm Company

Print out from computer, "Thank You" (use favorite font)

iron, scissors, rotary cutting tools

Cut out a "frame" and spray with gold spray paint. Paint remaining die cut with fabric paint marker. Use pale gold pen to highlight "for you." Adhere double stick tape where mentioned in How To Video.

Iron steam-a-seam onto wrong side of fabric. Iron to inside of card. Trim where needed with rotary cutters. Fold card in half. Position and iron a 2" wide and a 1/2" wide strip onto the cover, where desired. Print "Thank You" and glue to front of card with glue stick.

Adhere ribbon flowers onto front of pop up with a few 3/16" glue dots. Adhere pop up into card. Enjoy!

Have Fun...I did! Click on the Sizzix blinky in the sidebar and finish the hop!
