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!

  1. I love all the bright colors and each of these cards is fabulous! And really, your “mistake” certainly gives the card character!

  2. Cute and fun cards! But how did you ensure that the scallops on one side of the card would line up with the scallops on the other when the card is closed? I’m kind of mystified, but I can see that it would really make a difference if you used any kind of shaped die at all to create one of these cards.

  3. Thanks for sharing some cute cards from the card kit and sharing your goof! Glad we aren’t the only ones that make them :) I’m glad when bloggers leave their goofs in, shows that we are all human. I love your cards and how you stretched your supplies and the card kit! I always want to get the most out of my card kits by making cards and using them on my scrapbook pages!! I hope SSS will eventually start showing how to use the card kits on scrapbook pages as well, that would be totally awesome!! Thanks for sharing!!

  4. Loved your cards and I paid close attention. Both our daughters ask for me to make their gift card holders for their kid’s teachers.. In all I make around 18 holders at Christmas time and again at the end of school. Howdy Doody! I am ordering that slots cut and the 3 sided Scallop die. You just made my day! :)

  5. Great idea for gift cards! Thanks for the explanation about the die cut on the diagonal…I haven’t used mine yet so I appreciate this alert.

  6. Hi, I love the looks of these, so bright and cheerful. They are awesome, and I just love gift card holders, I think just about everyone gives gift cards at Christmas time. I agree with one of the other girls I like when the designers leave their mistakes in their videos and show us how to correct them because god knows we make a ton of them, or at least I do. Thanks for that.

  7. Sweet gift card holders! It’s neat to realize that even with your error, it’s still totally usable and unique. :)

  8. I love your cheerful cards! Thanks for the new fold. I love learning new folds to add variety to my creations! TFS
