Stampin' Up Many Manly Occasions Paper Pumpkin Kit - Gift Card Holder

O.K.  I know...I'm going in reverse again!  Instead of getting right to the cards that you can make with the Stampin' Up Paper Pumpkin Kit called Many Manly Occasions (Monthly Paper Pumpkin Kit for May of 2016), I went right for making a couple of 3D projects.

So, today's share will be a 3D Gift Card Holder project that I designed using a card, a piece of the orange corrugated cardstock and the stamp set from the kit.  I made the flowers using SU's Flower Patch Stamp Set and the coordinating Flower Fair Framelits.  The rest of the items on the Gift Card Holder are from my personal SU stash. 

Let's take a look:

I trimmed the top part of the lattice design from the card at 3-1/4".  Using a thin strip of Tear & Tape, I adhered each long side together.  (I stuck my snips inside the holder as I taped it so it gave more room for the corrugated paper and gift card to fit inside - it gave some height to the opening).

I stamped the sentiment from the Many Manly Occasions Paper Pumpkin kit in Night of Navy Ink on SU Whisper White Cardstock.  (The kit includes Photo Polymer Stamps so I was able to 'curve' the sentiment on my block and then stamp it curved.)

Using SU's new Duet Banner Punch (available to order tomorrow), I punched out the sentiment, went around the entire outside with my SU Pumpkin Pie Stampin' Write Marker and adhered it to the very top of my Gift Card Holder with Stampin' Dimensionals.

I stamped a bunch of flowers from SU's Flower Patch Stamp Set using SU's Pumpkin Pie, Night of Navy and Pear Pizzazz Inks.  I die cut all the image's using SU's Flower Fair Framelits, used my Petal Roller Tool to curl and give dimensions to the flower petals and leaves and adhered them to the slats in the lattice design using Mono Multi-Purpose Glue.

The Enamel Dots are retiring from SU's Occasions Catalog.  They may still be available to order today.

I trimmed out the Orange Corrugated Cardstock at 2-3/4" x 3-7/8" and rounded all four corners with my SU Corner Rounder Punch.

I trimmed out  a piece of Night of Navy Cardstock at 1" x 11" and flagged each end with SU's Triple Banner Punch.  I wrapped the piece unevenly and on an angle around the Orange Corrugated paper and the Gift Card to use it as a Pull.  (So you can grab the two flagged ends to pull the Gift Card out of the holder.)

I added a flower and a leaf to the end of the Night of Navy Cardstock piece.

I really like how this 3D project turned out!

That's all I have for today.  Please come back tomorrow when I will share another 3D project using SU's Many Manly Occasions Paper Pumpkin Kit.

Have a great day!

The below picture was intentionally left at this size as I am entering my project in the Paper Pumpkin Challenge at when the challenge opens up in June.

I recently discovered that people are using my cards and/or projects, duplicating them and entering them into challenges and using them for their own card classes.  My cards and projects are my own creations and are not to be used in challenges, blog hops, card classes or sold at craft shows; etc., for profit.  I don't mind if you duplicate my creativity to pass on to family members or friends as gifts or Occasions cards; but,  PLEASE be considerate of others creativity!  Thank you!
