Month of May Eastern Palace Series - Project #5 Basic Gift Card Holder

Today's Eastern Palace project is another gift card holder.  This one is super duper quick to make and I think you're going to love it. 
This little gift holder is the perfect size for stashing a gift card or a business card.

This is a simple belly band measuring 3/4" x 7".  A strip of the Eastern Gold Vinyl stickers encircles the band.  I used dies #8 and #9 for the center medallion and cut them from Fresh Fig card stock.  A coordinating sticker was used in the center of the medallion and then overlaid with a 1" Very Vanilla circle which was stamped with the sentiment "For You" from the Eastern Beauty stamp set.  Three small Basic Rhinestones were adhered below the word "you".  

This is what the full outside of the holder looks like when the belly band is removed and it's folded out. The Dapper Denim holder measures 4 1/4" x 9 3/4".  To assemble the base cut 1 piece of card stock to measure 4 1/4 x 6" and score this at 2" and 5".  Cut a second piece to measure 4 1/4" x 3 3/4" and score at 1"  Use a bone folder to burnish the fold lines. Join the sections of the holder at the 5" and 1" score lines.  I used 1/4" tear and tape placed at the bottom of the scored lines to join the two pieces.  Leave the top 3/4" open so you can insert the gift card.  I finished it off by rounding the bottom and top edges with the corner rounder on my Envelope Punch Board.   
Stamp Sets:  Eastern Beauty Photopolymer and Thoughtful Branches (R)
Ink:  Dapper Denim and Fresh Fig
Card Stock:  Dapper Denim and Fresh Fig and the Eastern Designer Series Specialty Paper
Accessories:  Big Shot, Paper Trimmer,  Bone Folder, Acrylic Blocks, Basic Pearls, Eastern Medallion Dies (#8 and #9, Stitched Shapes Ovals, Eastern Gold Vinyl Stickers, Tear and Tape, Dimensionals, Envelope Punch Board.

DSP Layers:
1.  Cut 4 pieces of DSP to 4 x 2 3/4".  2 will be used on the outside front of the holder and the reverse side of the remaining two will be on the inside.  For each side piece will be adhered to the center panel and the other will be adhered to the bottom panel (these are reverse of each other). Round only the bottom two corners on each side and adhere with the straight edge facing the center of the holder. 

2.  Cut 2 pieces of DSP to 4" x 1 3/4" and round the corners.  Adhere to the top inside and outside panels. 

3.  Cut 2 4" x 3/4" strips of DSP for the card holding panels and adhere.   Use the reverse design to what you used on the inside.  

4.  The ovals are cut with the Stitched Shapes dies and adhered with Tom Bow glue.  The stamps used are from the Eastern Beauty Photopolymer stamp set.  I added two Basic Rhinestones in the centers of the small stars.  I adhered a strip to the top and bottom of the inside panel from the Eastern Gold Vinyl Stickers set.
