Card base: Pacific Point Cardstock – 4 ¼” x 11” scored at 2 1/2” & 5 ½” on the LONG side

Birthday Memories Designer Series Paper – 4” x 6” piece; cut at 4” x 2 ¾”, 4” x 2 ¼”, & 4” x 1” (NOTE: when cutting

this paper be careful of directionality so that your images will appear in the correct position).

Whisper White Cardstock – 4” x 5 ¼” (for inside panel) & a 2 ½” x 2 7/8” piece (for the front panel)

Pacific Point Cardstock – 2 5/8” x 3”

Real Red Cardstock – 2 ¾” x 3 1/8”

  • Fold the Pacific Point card base in half and then fold the 2 ½” score line to the inside. This will become the pocket for the gift card. Be sure to burnish it well with the Bone Folder so it closes properly.
  • Adhere the 4” x 2 ¾” piece of Designer Series Paper to the front, the 4” x 2 ¼” piece to the inside flap for the gift card (flip the piece over to show the polka dots), and then the 4” x 1” piece to the Whisper White Cardstock (4” x 5 ¼”) piece for the inside. Stamp the ‘it’s your day’ saying from Big on Birthdays to the left on the panel in Real Red Ink.
  • On the inside panel that will become the gift card enclosure, punch a semi-circle with the 1” Circle Punch to allow your finger to reach in and retrieve the gift card. On the outer edges of the enclosure, use Tear & Tape and adhere the flap closed. Place your gift card inside.
  • Adhere the 4” x 5 ¼” Whisper White panel to inside of the card.
  • On the 2 ½” x 2 7/8” of Whisper White Cardstock, stamp the saying for the front in Real Red Ink. Adhere to the Pacific Point mat and then to the Real Red mat. On the backside of this piece apply adhesive ONLY on the left-hand side. Apply to the front to create the flap.
  • Place Rhinestones on the front flap over the dots on the ‘i’s’.
