My oldest niece will turn 12 on Monday, sniff….
I made her a card with a gift card holder attached. She wanted a Victoria’s Secret gift card, sigh.
I haven’t used my Cricut in a while and just refurbished my cutting mats, so I was ready for action! My go to cartridge for birthday girls is Forever Young. I found some of the cutest Forever Young Cricut cards on Pinterest!
I liked the trifold card idea and found some pre-scored and cut cards made from Club Scrap cardstock that I bought years ago when I was an FFC Crafter.
I liked how the panels on the Pinterest card were decorated, so I measured the panels and cut my cardstock to fit with a 1/8 inch border.
I’m kinda hooked on my Keep Calm clearance stamp I just bought and HAD to use it on this card. I altered it a little bit…
Then I decided to add a gift card pocket on the opposite side of the panel. I cut the birthday present layers on the Forever Young cartridge and made a pocket on the back of it to slide the gift card into.
I flattened the folded edges with my bone folder, put a thin strip of glue on them and glued to my card panel.
Keep Calm and go shopping Ellie Belle!
