Crabby Gift Card Holder

While I had the Crab & Co images and the background paper I used for the card I created for Beate's Sketch challenge this week, I thought I would make a 8 x 8 folded gift holder that Cambria posted about on her blog this week. This is a pretty similar fold to one that I use to create a passport fold which has 4 pockets - 2 inside and 2 outside. Cambria used a piece of 8 x 8 Paper to create her gift holders as did I for the one here - these would suit a gift card you are giving to some perfectly. I think these would also be great to present an ATC in, however you would need to change the size of the paper for them to fit. Possibly a 9 x 9 would work but I haven't tried it as yet so I suggest if you want to try this to do mock up one first using scrap paper.

Well I am just about out of crab images now so that will be all Crab related cards until I get around to actually purchasing this set.


Recipe:
Stamps:
Crab & Co - Stampin' Up; Sand - Darcies; Clouds - Mostly Animals

Paper:
White, Orange, B'G Paper - One Heart....One Mind

Other: Black Ink; White Gel Pen; Tria Markers; Oval Punch; Scallop Scissors
