Make Your Own Birthday Greeting – with a Pocket for a Gift Card

My amazing friend, Mary Ellen Stites, introduced me to this card design last month – this super-simple way to turn a regular sized card into a gift card holder, with just one extra score line. See how it works?

I’ve created this card based on her basic design, this time featuring the Bonanza Buddies stamp set and fabulous Birthday Bonanza Designer Series Paper.

This card is one of 4 that are included in the printable LovenStamps Monthly Card Tutorials for February – free with any order placed in my online store during February.

And because of Leap Day, we have one more day in February to qualify for these tutorials! In the meantime, check out the special idea I created for using the printed cellophane bags that are part of the Birthday Bonanza Product Suite – I love the way the shiny piece looks on the front of the card.
