Hello all - Tya here with a quick and easy little gift card holder that would be perfect for that special lady in your life (grandmas, mom's, aunts, friends etc.)



TRI-FOLD GIFT CARD HOLDER
Supplies used:
SEI Diane paper
SEI Think of Me stickers
5 1/2 x 10 1/2  orange cardstock
(3) 3 1/4 x 3 1/4 pattern paper (1 floral, 1 purple, 1 blue)
1x 10 1/2 pattern paper for belly band
Pearls 
 6x6 inch piece of paper for the envelope

Step 1-
On  10 1/2 inch side of the orange cardstock, score the paper at 3 1/2 and 7.



 Step 2-
 On 5 1/2 inch side of orange cardstock, score the paper at 3 1/2



 Step 3-
Lay the paper on its 10 1/2 inch side. Cut the outer bottom sections off the paper as shown.


 Step 4-
Line the outer panels up on the 6 inch mark of the Scor-pal and do a diagonal score as shown.

 Do this on both panels. MAKE SURE THAT YOU DO YOUR SCORE MARKS IN THE SAME DIRECTION ON BOTH PANELS.(See below). Otherwise your card will not fold up properly.
 Step 5-
Fold on all the scored marks as shown:
  Step 6-
You have (3) 3 1/4 x 3 1/4  pieces of pattern paper. You are going to take 2 of these squares and diagonal score them so that you have 2 halves of the same papers. You will use these to decorate the diagonal scored outer panels of the card.

Add the other whole piece of 3 1/4 x 3 1/4 pattern paper square to the middle section of the card. Add some score tape to the outer edges of the middle panel to make the pocket. Add the stickers and the tag.

 Step7-
To make the belly band, take the 1 x 10 1/2 inch paper and score it at 3 1/2 and 7.

 Step 8-
Add the belly band around the card. Place the sentiment sticker on some cardstock and trim. Add the sentiment to the belly band. Embellish the sentiment.



Step 9-
If you'd like to make an envelope for this card with your Scor-Envi tool, take a 6 x 6 piece of paper, lay diagonally on the Scor-pal and you will score at 4 and at 8 to make the envelope. It is a 4 inch sizes enevelope.
