Greeting Card Gift Set

Hey there! It’s Judy V here with you today sharing a greeting card gift set project created with card stocks from CutCardStock.


For this project I have used:

Basis WHITE 80lb Card-stock

DCS Discount Card Stock: Black Card Stock

Chalkboard Prints 6×6 Card Stock pad – Assortment – 36 sheets

Die sets, stamping ink, gel pen, liquid adhesive, double sided tape adhesive, score board and bone folder

Card Bases

My set includes 6 cards with bases cut from card stock.

Die Cuts

My die cutting was done next.

I inked the flowers and leaves on the white unicorn die cuts. Using a silver glitter gel pen I outlined the unicorn head.

The white unicorn die cuts were adhered to the black to give an outline effect.

Assembling the Cards

6 banners were hand cut from a patterned card stock for the cards. I also cut a 7th later for the front of the folio that holds the card set.

Add the banners, circle die cuts, unicorn pieces and sentiments.

A white panel can be added to the inside of the card for messages.

Card Set Holder

I decided to make a holder for the card set and went with a folio style. 

Start with a 9 x 12 inch piece of card stock. I used Basis White card stock, but am showing a colored card stock in my photos.

Score at 1/2, 1, 5 1/2, 6 1/2, 11 & 11 1/2 inches

Turn to short side and score at 6 1/4 & 6 3/4 inches

Cut along the 1 & 11 inch score lines on the long side down to the 6 3/4 inch score lines and remove. 

In the center cut along the 5 1/2 & 6 1/2 inch score lines from the 6 1/4 inch down to the bottom.

Fold along the 2 score lines in the center, lower and outer edges. Adhere as seen in the photo below.

Two 1/2 inch deep pockets are formed to hold cards and envelopes.

The finished folio measure 4 1/2 x 6 1/4 x 1 inch. 

A piece of ribbon about 18 inches long was adhered to the front and back cover.

I added a piece of the patterned card stock measuring 4 x 5 1/4 inches for the front. A banner and die cut circle were added with flowers fussy cut and inked from another piece of patterned card stock.

Add your cards and envelopes
