Well with my card classes cancelled for the time being, and lot’s of time spent at home, what’s a girl to do? Crafting of course.
Ok, well I would be crafting anyways but now I have more time, so decided to try something new. I made up this gift card box (or book) which holds five cards and envelopes to match up with the paper. How cute is that?
I am pretty pleased with how it turned out and it would make a great gift for someone who cannot get out and about. Add some stamps and they are all set. I left the inside of the cards blank so they can be tailored to suit any occasion.

This is such a cute and different way to wish someone well. To create this card, I used the Needle Point Nook designer series paper (DSP)for the blue robes and Twinkle Twinkle DSP for the Green robe. I think they have that Pajama look about them don’t you?
Each card was cut at 8 1/2 x 5 1/2 and folded inwards at 2 1/8 to meet in the middle. The sleeves are measured down by 2″ and cut inwards at 3/4″. I trimmed the sleeves to make them angled a bit.
It’s a little tricky but leaving the sleeve facing outward, I folded the remainder of the card inwards and creased using the bone folder. This gives you an inside fold. To form the collar, I used a ruler to line up the bottom of the sleeves then folded center outward then creased gently as I did not want it to fall flat
I added whisper white card stock to the inside, cut at 2 1/2″ by 5 1/4″ This should be glued underneath the folds. I stamped “Missing you” from the Home to Roost stamp set and made sure it lines up between the collar than stamped “Hope you feel better really soon” from the ??? stamp set inside the robe. For whatever reason I cannot find this stamp again. I know it will show up when I least expect it to.
The slippers puppy faces were stamped with Bella and Friends in Grey Granite. I then fussy cut out the puppy head and coloured them with my blender pens I really like how the green shows up the puppy face but am lacking the proper colour to make the blue slippers stand out. I think I might add some blue fluff balls on top instead…fuzzy slippers make for a great alternative and will just add to the cuteness of the card.
The final step is to add the ribbon. I did glue the ribbon to the back on the card so when it’s opened it doesn’t fall off. It also helps to keep it in place when you are trying to tie a bow in front. The blue ribbon was part of the sale-a-bration ribbon combo and the green was left over from the paper pumpkin kit (Jan 2019 I think)
