Studio Monday with Nina-Marie: Pebbles Hooray Inspiration

Studio Monday with Nina-Marie

Hello crafters, its Nina-Marie here with you today and I have some inspiration for you on creating trifold gift card holders. Both of these projects feature the adorable Pebbles Hooray collection, which I really love working with.

These trifold gift card holders are so easy to make with the help of the Simon exclusive 3 Sided Scallop die. With a bit of creative die cutting, you can turn your dies into very clever things! By simply scoring my 4 1/4″ x 11″ piece of white cardstock at 3 1/2″ from either end and then cutting those two outer ends with the scallop die, you get a super-quick and fun card design!

Another thing to remember when making cards is that none of us are perfect! I had a “duh” moment when creating one of these cards; I absentmindedly forgot that the catty-corner Lawn Fawn Simple Gift Card Slots die was not supposed to be aligned straight across the card, but rather the corners of the die lining up with the corners of the paper (I demonstrate both my mistake and the correct method in the video). However, I was determined to make my mistake work and in the end I actually kind of like how the gift card is a bit “cattywampus”!

The cute script sentiments you see on the front of each card are from the Echo Park Birthday Party die set; the font is beautiful and really matched up nicely with the Pebbles Happy Hooray ephemera and 6×6 papers.

Be sure to check out the video below to see the trifold card design come together! I hope this inspires you with ideas for using the Happy Hooray collection from Pebbles, as well as create a few trifold cards of your own! Thanks so much for visiting with me today… I will not be posting next week as we have something else planned for next Monday, so instead you will see me back again the following week (10/30) with a new video for you! Until then, happy creating!
