  • This card unties and unfolds revealing a perfect spot to tuck a gift certificate.  Need a custom Stampin' Up! gift certificate?  Let me design something special.  Click for details.
  • Cut card stock to 12" x 4.5".  I like to use Stampin' Up! textured card stock for a luxurious touch.
  • Score at 4" and 9.5". See below for finished result.
  • I used a Crop-A-Dile to pop in the holes for the ribbon.
  • The interior "stripes" are simply strips of scrap paper (Tangerine Tango, Real Red, Basic Gray and Certainly Celery).
