Ping Gift Card Holder

This Friend to Friend Stamp set from Dandelion Designs is featuring Ping.......I love PING!!!! Ping didn't need much coloring at all. Use RV02 to color inside the ears and nose. A dab of the RV02 is good for cheeks, too. The Bamboo leaves are a SCAL (Sure Cuts a Lot Program) cut file (see info below) and are popped up with dimensionals. The Bamboo trunks are "flat". The center Scallop is also popped with dimensionals. After adhering the Washi paper to the Pink CS, pop with dimensionals.

Look at how cute Ping is.....................

Slowly open the card:

to reveal:

Yup, I found the perfect gift card from Panda Express!!!! The colors worked out so great (surprise!).see this side view ......

And instead of discarding the center from the front card "punch out", I used it on the inside to stamp the message (included in the stamp set).

Here's a better view of the gift card in the holder:

So to make this card:

(1) 8-1/2" x 5-1/2" Red CS, score along the 8-1/2" side @4-1/4"

(1) 4" x 5-1/4" Pink CS
(1) 3-3/4" x 5" Washi Paper
(1) 2-3/4" 7 Scallop Circle, cut using SCAL available file in the library
(1) 2-1/2" 7 Scallop Circle, cut using SCAL available file in the library with 3/16" frame
Bamboo SCAL cut file from for outside and inside
Top Inside Card:
(1) 2-3/4" x 4" Pin CS

(1) 2-1/4" x 3-3/4" Washi Paper
use cut 7 Scallop Circle from front
Bottom Inside Card:

(1) 2-1/2" x 1-1/4" Pink CS
(1) 2-1/4" x 1" Washi Paper
Template for Gift Card Holder (provided by Dandelion when Flower stamp set is purchased)
Washi Paper : use template provided, cut smaller 1/8" all around

On the top inside card: adhere the top cut pieces and position the bamboo pieces along the left edge. After scoring the gift card holder, attach sticky tape to the extension (instructions are included on the template, too). Remove tape, fold over the top of card and the gift card holder can be "popped" up.
