Scor-pal and Paper Smooches

Hi there - Tya here with my take on the fun swap that we got to participate in with Paper Smooches. They absolutely have the cutest, most whimsical stamps out there that are totally right up my alley!
I got to use the new stamps set called Think Fast. It featured lots of darling food shapes. I decided to make a fun little gift card holder/card to give to your special someone when you need a  lunch date! I was inspired by a pin that I had on Pinterest, like this one  here, I just changed the measurements and made it a single pocket instead of a double. Here's how I made it:
Greeting Card with Gift Card Holder Pocket

Think Fast stamp set by Paper Smooches
6x6 paper pad from My Minds Eye Collectable papers
 6 x 11 Red cardstock 
Kraft cardstock 3 1/2 x 4 1/4 and 3 x 5 1/2
Scallop border punch

Step 1- On the 11 inch side of the red cardstock, make score marks at the Triangles on the Scor-pal. (these are the marks you would use to make a brochure fold)

Step 2- On the 6 inch side, score at 1 1/2 and 3 inches.

Step 3- Trim away the bottom and middle sections as shown. NOTE: its ok if you have score marks left on the sections showing. This is just meant to be a card base and you will eventually cover these with other papers.

Step 4-
Now you will choose 3 different pattern papers to cover the card base.

These measure 3 1/2 x 5 3/4 (stripe), 3 1/2 x 4 1/4  (green dot), 3 1/2 x 2 3/4 (yellow)

Add these layers to the card as shown:

Step 5- Add Scor tape as shown to make the front pocket:

Step 6- Decorate the card as shown:
Banner is 1 x 3 inches, Kraft cardstock on left side is 3 1/2 x 4 1/4, Kraft cardstock on right side is 
3 x 5 1/2, white cardstock is 2 1/2 x 4 1/4. Add  sentiment  and soda cup stamp. Add button and twine.

Kraft paper border strip 1 x 3 1/2 - used a scallop border punch. Red cardstock is 2 1/2 x 2 1/2, Red stripe paper is 2 x 2. Add sandwich stamp and buttons.

Thanks for joining me!
