This card is called the "JOY FOLD" card. Not exactly sure why it's called that, but I just loved the design and decided it would be a great card for me to try making. The measurements and the directions are as follows:

|A Gift Card Holder in A CARD|
A friend of mine who is a Stampin Up Demonstrator, Kathy, brought this card to a demonstrator meeting and I just had to make it. It is a greeting card and a gift card or money holder all in one. Here's how I made it:
Here are the measurements for this Card:
Card Base =11 x 4 1/4...Score at 2 1/2, 5 inches, (Rich Razzelberry)
DSP Liner for the card face = 2 3/4 x 4 (Share What You Love)
Small Card (attaches to top of DSP) = 3 1/4 x 4 in. (Rich Razzelberry)
Liner = 3 x 3 3/4 (Crumb Cake)
Inside Liner (Crumb Cake) 4 x 5 1/4
Inside Face (Whisper White) 3 3/4 x 5 (stamped surface)
Inside DSP for gift card holder = 4 x 2 1/4
I used the "Stitched All Around Stamp Set" for the outside greeting, placed on Whisper White with the Framelit from the Spot of Tea Framelit Collection.
I took a 3/4 inch punch and took a "half moon" out from the top of the card holder to allow room for fingers to retrieve the card. I added a "for you" greeting to place on the gift card holder done in Rich Razzleberry and White from the Spot of Tea Collection. The inside greeting of "Wishing You All the Best" comes from the Blended Seasons Stamp Set.
The card is done in a very generic style to allow you to use it for any occasion where you would be giving money or a gift card as a gift. I think it can be used for birthdays, weddings, showers, graduations, retirement and many others. I hope you take the time to make this card because it is easy and fun to make and I hope you will share your card with me when you're done.
Thanks for stopping by and taking a peek!!
