Hi Stamping Friends!
So yesterday, I tried to tell you that the He's The Man LIVE Class Kit earning period was extended until June 10, but it appears that some of my blog updates were not saved, so that info never posted. <sigh> I am pleased to discover that I can once again add new photos to my posts, which I haven't been able to do for several days.
I have a couple more cards from my He's The Man LIVE Class to share with you today—a cool fun-fold gift card holder!
Be sure to join me next Tuesday, June 14 for my Sweet Songbirds LIVE Class.

He's The Man "Classic" Gift Card Holders
When you're not sure what to buy the man in your life, sometimes a gift card is just what is needed. Here's a fun card design that is perfect for gift card giving! I love how it turned out with the He's The Man elements and it would be just as fun with other stamps and papers.
Background Basics—The gift card holder base is two parts: one Early Espresso 4-1/4" x 5-1/2" piece, and one Early Espresso measuring 8-1/2" x 2-1/4" and scored at the 4-1/4" mark. I adhered a 4" x 3" piece of the classic car pattern from the He's The Man Designer Series paper to the top of the quarter-sheet piece. Next, I adhered the folded piece onto the bottom of the quarter sheet. The inside part of the folded piece becomes the gift card pocket, so it's only adhered around the sides and bottom with Tear & Tape, leaving plenty of room for a card. You can see a better photo of what I mean below. I added a 4" x 2" piece of He's The Man DSP to the front of that panel to finish the card front decoration.
Focal Point Foundation—I started by die-cutting a Basic White Stitched Rectangle and layering it onto a 2-1/2" x 3-7/8" piece of Early Espresso. I mounted that onto a 2-5/8" x 4" piece of Cajun Craze, then tied some Linen Thread around it twice, tying it into a double knot. I used more Tear & Tape to secure the foundation onto the front panel of the card…careful to only put that adhesive on the bottom. This front panel will hide the gift card!
Sweet Sentiment—I stamped the He's All That sentiment in Early Espresso ink onto a Sahara Sand All That die-cut. It's popped up onto the card front with Dimensionals. Next, I stamped the circle element in Cajun Craze onto Basic White, hand-cut it out and popped it up, as well. It's finished with a few Rustic Metallic Adhesive Backed Dots.
Inside The Card—I stamped a few button images in Cajun Craze along the bottom of a 4" x 2" piece of Basic White and adhered it to the inside for a writing space. You can see how the gift card tucks into the pocket and the card front becomes a peek-a-boo style panel. Too Cool!
Two Cool—I created a second "no stamping" card that utilizes the die-cuts from the He's The Man DSP pack. The card base is the same, I simply flipped the DSP to the back sides for a little different look.
Sensational Sentiment—The focal point foundation has the same measurements, I just flip-flopped the colors. I added the card and "classic" die-cuts with Dimensionals and tied the Line Thread between them. I also added a couple of small die-cut stars from the sheet and a couple of Rustic Metallic Dots. So quick & easy!
On The Inside—I used a small die-cut banner to decorate the inside, too.
