Mother's Day and Graduation are right around the corner along with teachers gifts, baby showers, and weddings. Here is the perfect card idea that is also a gift card holder. Just tuck a gift card in the pocket and it's ready to give. Plus, with patterned paper, they are super quick and easy to make! Be sure to read all the way through to the end, because I might just have some new catalog sneak peeks too... So, on y go! Let's get stamping.
Shower Gift Card Holder Idea
This first example would be perfect for a baby shower, wedding shower, or even a birthday. It uses the Sand & Sea patterned paper from the Stampin' Up! January-June Mini Catalog. The front piece is stamped with the Field of Flowers stamp set which is scheduled to be discontinued May 3.
Graduation Card Idea
This fun graduation card uses the retiring Playing with Patterns patterned paper and So Much Happy stamp set. It is stamped in Coastal Cabana and Night of Navy. Instead of using a strip of patterned paper on the right side of the interior. I stamped the smaller balloons along the edge.
Mother's Day Card Design
This card uses the exact same cutting dimensions as the previous card, but the front panel has been flipped the other direction. This card uses the Welcoming Window stamp set which is in the January-June Mini Catalog and is carrying over to the 2021-2022 Annual Catalog. I've paired the stamps with the Fine Art Floral patterned paper from the Mini Catalog.

I have some easy card ideas for you today using the Butterfly Brilliance Collection from Stampin' Up! I love this new stamp and the coordinating dies. Sadly, the gorgeous Butterfly Bijou patterned paper has already sold out. But, if you already have some of this beautiful paper sitting on your craft table, here are some great ideas for creating cards with it. If you're not so lucky to have a pack of the Butterfly Bijou paper, you could make these cards with other patterned paper and the Butterfly Brilliance stamp set. So, on y go! Let's get stamping.
I used a blending brush to add a little Mango Melody ink to the outside of the So Saffron butterfly. This gave the butterfly a yellow and orange look to it. I only glued the center of the Basic Black detailed butterfly so that the wings would pop up and give the butterfly dimension.
