Flower Shop pop 'n' cuts gift card holder (with instructions)

Today I've turned a Pop 'n' Cuts card base into a pretty gift card holder with just 3 score lines & some girlie decoration in a pretty colour combo of strawberry slush, pink pirouette, pool party, white & crumb cake. Here's a closer look.
The front was simply decorated with a pretty flower & Chalk Talk framelits tag, embossed with the Alphabet Press embossing folder & The chevron panel was stamped with a chevron pattern  (Oh, Hello) & thank you sentiment (Express Yourself), then cut with another Chalk Talk framelit. I tied some ruffled ribbon around the shaped end to add pretty to the front & inside.
On the inside, I've created a folded panel to hold a gift card holder & added a simple panel to write a message. A few more flowers & strip of DSP finish it off.

Gift Card Holder - Basic Instructions
1. Cut the base with the pop 'n' cuts card base die.
2. Starting from the curved end of the base, score at...
    Metric - 9.5cm, 20cm & 26cm
    Inches - 3-3/4in, 7-3/4in, 10in
3. Fold the first score to form the front, then fold in the other 2 scores to form the gift card pocket.
4. Decorate as you like :-)

Don't have the pop 'n' cuts base die yet?
Try cutting a simple version with plain card. Score as above.
    *  Metric - cut card 10.5cm x 28cm from A4 sheet
    *  Inches - cut card 4-1/4inches x 10-3/4 inches

Well, that's all from me for today. Thanks for visiting & if you have any q's just leave a comment. Back soon with something new.
Inky wishes, Di
