#SU! Beachy Birthday Slide-Out Pocket Fun Fold Card

 When it's just 6 degrees outside, I tend to want to think of warmer climates and for me that always include the beach. The Paradise Palms Bundle is the perfect set for that beachy feel.

When I think of the beach, besides sand and ocean waves I also tend to think of white-washed wood. The opposite sides of every piece of Heart & Home Designer Series Papers has a gray wood-grain design. Perfect choice for a beachy card!

So many of the birthday cards I send these days get sent with a gift card. Therefore I'm always looking for a great way to package the two together. This gift card pull card was just the thing. 

Instead of using ribbon which adds a bit of bulk to the front and makes it a bit more difficult to mail, I added an adhesive-backed die cut which makes this card very mailable.

Hope you'll check out my video tutorial below:

Basic Gray cardstock: 4-1/4" x 11" and scored along the 11" side at 3-1/2" & 9"; 3/4" x 5-3/4" apply Adhesive Sheet to the back and run through the Stampin' Cut & Emboss Machine with die-cut

Basic White cardstock: 3-1/2" x 7" and scored along the 7" side at 1/2" and 5" (this is for the inside pull); 2-5/8" x 3-3/8" for the beach scene image

Pool Party cardstock: 2-3/4" x 3-1/2" 
Heart & Home DSP: 4" x 5". Cut so you have 2 pieces: 1- 1-3/4" x 4; 1- 3-1/4" x 4" 
(You could substitute a pieces of ribbon or trim, 14" instead)
