The first card today is a gift card holder by Pat Militello.  

This is a match book style gift card holder.  Bottom flap is held together with 2 gold mini brads.  The flowers were stamped on Whisper White, then punched with the 3/4" Circle Punch and popped up.  

The card base is cut 4-1/4" x 10-1/2".  Score at 4-1/4" and 9-1/4", then fold up the smallest flap.  Put in 2 brads about 1/2 down  on the flap as shown to hold the big flap in when closed.  

To make the gift card holder inside, cut a piece of double sided DSP at 3-3/4" x 3".  Score along 3" side at 2-1/2" , then crease to make a 1/2" pocket.  Use a little Sticky Strip or Tombo glue to hold the pocket closed at either end.  
Supplies used:

Bright Blossoms stamp set 125497, Bring on the Cake stamp set  121958
Whisper White and Summer Starfruit card stock, Summer Smooches DSP 125409

Here are a couple more samples:

This card was designed by Andrea Drollinger.  I love how she used Real Red & a Rhinestone to accent the flowers.

 This card was a make and take we made for our demonstrator meeting.  It was designed by JoAnn Graham to give us a sneak peek at the Bright Blossoms stamp set, Summer Smooches DSP and the new Diagonal Score Plate to make a matching envelope.
