Pumpkin Gift-Card Holder in a Pocket!

Updated: Oct 19, 2022

Hello lovely friends, Nina here with an adorable Gift Card Holder in a card with a pocket. I know it is confusing :), I will explain it all, Let's begin.

I used the dies from the sets Envelop GCH Set and it's Halloween Add-on Pumpkin Gift Card Holder Set. These two sets will create the envelop where the gift card is placed.

I used papers from the cutest Happy Haunting Paper collection by Doodlebug and die cut the envelop from purple pattern paper and the pumpkin from orange pattern paper. I also die cut the mini pieces that create the pumpkin eyes, mouth, stem and spider.

I gave extra depth to the edges of the orange pumpkin piece and the purple envelop with a blending tool and distress inks. I used Wilted Violet Distress Ink for the envelop, Spiced Marmalade Distress Ink for the pumpkin and Mowed Lawn Distress Ink for the green stem.

I attached the pumpkin pieces with Nuvo Glue to my pumpkin then glued the whole pumpkin on the front of the card-holder. Now that the envelop is ready we can start working on our greeting card.

I wanted to place my envelop in a pocket on the inside of the greeting card. So, I die cut the pocket using the pocket die included in Ai Journal Template Die Set and starry black paper from Happy Haunting collection. I folded the flaps along the score lines the die created and placed thin double sided tape and attached to the background that I cut to the size of my card from a striped pattern paper from the same Happy Haunting collection.

I wanted to place some fun element to peek out of the pocket when the card envelop is out of the pocket. So I found this cute black cat in the Happy Haunting Ephemera Pack and embellished around her with Enamel Star Stickers.

To decorate the outside of the card I used the Double Stitched Round Corner Rectangle Dies to cut a purple panel and decorated on top pieces from Mini Icons Stickers Sheet and ephemera from the same collection. I then decorated it with Enamel Dots.

Thank you for stopping by!
