Motion Cards

Happy motion Monday,
Yes, as you can guess, I've been fascinated with cards that have moving parts lately. This weekend I posted about slider cards. You can find that post here. Today is about another type of slider card. It works as a gift card holder. I saw one of these about a year ago in Madison at a stamp show. So here's how they are assembled. You will need two pieces of card stock. The first is cut to 4.25 x 11" and scored at 2 inches 7 1/4 inches and 7 5/8 inches. The second piece is cut at 3.25 x 6.5 and is scored at 1 3/4 and 6 inches. 
Fold on the score lines.
With an envelope punch, punch in 1 inch from each edge of the top. 
This creates a flap to fold on the inside of the bottom folded pocket.
 wanted to use and Impression Obsession background stamp on the inside pocket. I used a white chalk ink. The outside is embosses with white sparkle embossing.

Decorate your paper as desired. Attach score taped to the outside edges that fold up to make pockets and the narrow strip on the small piece for the gift card holder. 
Slide the gift card holder inside the pocket created by taping the sides. Line it up with the fold in the top flap and remove the cover from the score tape. Close the cover to secure. Now when you open the flap the pocket should slide up. 
I decorated the front with diecuts and glitter tape. You could do these in any theme for any holiday. Thanks for joining me today I look forward to your comments.
