Coupon Card

images (c) Stampin' Up!, 1990-2007

So we've all given cards that include gift cards, but have you ever made a card that WAS the gift card? Well, that's exactly what this card is!

Night of Navy and Rose Red make up the color scheme. Aged copper hardware and navy grosgrain ribbon accent the piece.

The gift is proudly displayed in the front, doubling as the design art, but here's the best part - the coupon is a tear-off! Just using the perforating blade from SU!s Cutter Kit along the left edge of the coupon makes it easy to tear off after reading the inside of card. By lifting the coupon at the ribbon and using the perforated edge as the "fold," you reveal the inside message that completes the sentiment. Basically, the layered Navy/Rose Red piece is the stationary base, and the only moving piece is the coupon.

Comment with any questions. I'll be happy to clarify. lol

By keeping this design simple, you don't overwhelm the men in your life, and you make it easy to re-create anytime. Enjoy!
