In this video, I’m going to show you how to add a quick and easy gift card pocket inside your handmade cards!

Gift Card Pocket Tips:

  • Score a 4-1/4″ x 11″ piece of card stock at 2-1/4” and 5-1/2” and fold on the score lines to create your card base.
  • Punch a half circle on the end of the card front BEFORE taping the ends down inside to form the gift card pocket.
  • Use Tear & Tape adhesive to tape the sides of your pocket to the inside of your card base.
  • Watch where you add the tape to your front card piece so you don’t glue your card shut!!! Ask me how I know. 🙈
  • Decorate the front of your card as desired.


Super easy right? I hope you’ll give this a try the next time you’re giving someone a gift card.

Happy Stamping!
