Want to see a bright and cheerful tropical escape gift card holder?  It’s perfect for this summery weather we’re having right now.  But also ideal for bon voyage gifts to tropical isles.  

And with cardstock packs and our 6”x6” designer series paper combos, they’re a super way to give your paper crafting projects some fresh colours and designs at a great price.

Let’s take a peek.

Designer Paper Tropical Escape Gift Card Holder Idea


I just love this Tropical Escape paper. The piece I’ve chosen has bold leaves with a bright green background, a darker fern and sweet pink berries. (Well, I’m not really sure those are berries but that’s what I’m going with. What do you think they are?)

Another super simple idea you might like also features the tropical leaf but with a much softer palette.

You can see there’s plenty of less dramatic designs too for a more subtle message, even black and white ones.  Nice and neat.  Already cut to 6”x6” and you get 48 sheets with 4 each of 12 double-sided designs.  They work out to only 31 cents a sheet!

Granny Apple Green is my current go-to colour.  So fresh and happy.  And paired with the Shaded Spruce and Blushing Bride?  Fab-YOU-lous! 

One of the great things about our designer papers is the cardstock pack accompanying them.  Have you noticed these in the catalogue?  Stampin’ Up! created packs of 24 sheets of coordinating cardstock for each DSP.  This is a gosh-darn great way to build your cardstock colours without having to buy a full package all the same colour.  (Well unless you want to 😊.) 

Just think.  More colours. Less cost to you.  Sign me up!

Tropical Escape Gift Card Holder

This card looks a bit deceiving.  Sort of normal on the outside, but there’s a cool folded front along that diagonal that opens up.

And inside, the bottom diagonal fold is glued along the edges so a gift card fits in there just like a snuggly little bug in a rug!

I knew I wanted a small greeting and thought this one from the A Big Thank You set fit really well with the tropical garden paper.  To mimic the paper style, I stamped the flourish first on a piece of scrap paper then on my Whisper White.  Next, I stamped the greeting in Granny Apple Green right over top.

Then I pulled out my 1 1/2” circle punch which was the perfect fit and matted it onto a 1 3/8” scallop circle punch.  These punches are staples in my crafting closet. I use them almost every day!  The larger Shaded Spruce circle is actually from the Stitched Shapes framelits but you can’t see the stitching line.  Since I wanted a narrow matting, I chose this size rather than the next size up of circle punch for a more delicate look.

A single clear rhinestone to accent the flourish and some silver metallic edged ribbon in behind and voila!  Done!

My list of supplies might look a tad long, but I’ve included the full sized packages of the cardstock in case you’d like a few more sheets.   Remember with every $60 order you place with me right now you’ll get a free coupon with Stampin’ Up! for $6.  And I’m also offering a free stamp pad in any colour you choose with an $85 online order in August when you use hostess code XNVWWRZU.

Thanks so much for choosing to shop with me.
