Stampin' Up Tasty Treats, Cool Treats, Frozen Treats Class - Trifold Gift Card Holder IV

It was 63 degrees here on Saturday and we broke lots of records in Michigan going back to the 1930's.  Yesterday was 58 and today is supposed to be 57.  Crazy, crazy Michigan weather!  I'm taking it with a BIG smile!!!

My share for today is the Trifold Gift Card Holder in a Cool Treats Card Class that Stampin' Up designed for their Stampin' Up Demonstrators to share with our Customers.  I liked this class for several reasons (besides 3 awesome cards and a gift card holder): different size of cards that I haven't made yet, the use of Washi Tape, a lot of stamping and making my own envelopes.

The Stampin' Up products that I used are Tasty Treats Specialty Designer Series Paper, Cool Treats Stamp Set and Frozen Treats Framelits Dies. 

Let's take a look at my Trifold Gift Card Holder:

I LOVE that Stampin' Up used the Sunburst pattern from the Tasty Treats Designer Series Specialty Paper for the top of the ice cream cone.  So cute!!!

The Gift Card Holder Base is Crumb Cake Cardstock cut at 3-1/2" x 7-1/2" and scored and folded at 2-1/2" and 5".

The Front Panel is the Crumb Cake Diamond pattern from the Tasty Treats DSSPaper cut at 2-1/4" x 3-1/4"and adhered to the first Gift Card Holder panel on an angle with Mono Multi Purpose Glue.

The Second Front Panel is Whisper White Cardstock cut at 2" x 3" 

Using SU's Cool Treats Stamp set, I stamped the word 'SWEET' in Pool Party Ink 5 times.  I started by stamping the Center 'SWEET' first and then the two Above and then the two the two Below

I adhered a strip of SU's Cool Treats Designer Washi Tape, tied about 12" piece of Old Olive Baker's Twine around the panel and into a bow and then adhered the Panel with Stampin' Dimensionals.

Using SU's Frozen Treats Framelits Dies, I die cut my Ice Cream Cone pieces from Chocolate Chip, Crumb Cake, Real Red and Soft Suede Cardstocks and the Ice Cream from the Sunburst pattern in the Tasty Treats DSSPaper.

Using SU's Cool Treats Stamp Set, I stamped the Base of the Ice Cream Cone in Crumb Cake Ink and then assembled my Ice Cream Cone as shown in the picture above.  I adhered the Base of the Ice Cream Cone with Mono Multi Purpose Glue and the Top of the Ice Cream Cone with Stampin' Dimensionals.

Using SU's Cool Treats Stamp Set, I stamped the Sentiment twice in Pool Party Ink onto Whisper White Cardstock and trimmed the words out with my Snips.  I adhered them to the Ice Cream Cone with Mono Multi Purpose Glue.

I adhered 3 of the Yellow Plastic Spheres from SU's Sprinkles Embellishments with Mono Multi Purpose Glue.

For the inside of my Trifold Gift Card Holder, I stamped my Sentiment in Crumb Cake Ink on the Center Panel and adhered another strip of Tasty Treats Designer Washi Tape to the Right side of the Right Panel.

I trimmed out a piece of the Pool Party Grid Pattern to measure 5-1/2" x 5-1/2" for a 3-1/2" x 5" Card size to make my Envelope.  I lined the Left Edge of the paper up to the 3-1/8" Mark on the Envelope Punch Board and punched and scored the paper.  I then lined up the score lines with the notch on the Envelope Punch Board and punched and scored three more times rotating my paper after each punch and score.  

I then assembled my Envelope with SU's Tear & Tape Adhesive Tape.

What a Fun, Fun Gift Card Holder and I loved creating something different!

That's all I have for today.  Thanks for stopping by my blog!

I recently discovered that people are using my cards and/or projects, duplicating them and entering them into challenges, using them for their own card classes and (using them on their blogs as their own creations) - Please give credit where credit is due.  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!
