Tri-Fold Gift Card Holder

I made this card from a Father's Day Card shown in the Spring 2013 CardMaker magazine. If you have trouble following the written directions and would like to see a good tutorial, Schell Fabian has one on You Tube - Stampin Up! - Pop Up Gift Card Holders. It is slightly different in the way it is put together, but you basically get the same result.

Gift Card Holder Directions:
1. Cut a 4 ¼ x 11-inch piece from cardstock.
2. With piece horizontal on scoring board, start at left edge and score at 3, 4 ¼, 5 ½ and 8 ½ inch marks.
3. Cut cardstock into two pieces at the 4 ¼ inch score line. The smaller piece will measure 4 ¼ x 4 ¼ inches (I actually cut this down by 1/8 inch to make it fold up better in the end), and the larger piece will measure 4 ¼ x 6 ¾ inches; each piece will have a 1 ¼ inch flap.
4. Fold along all score lines.
5. To form gift card pocket, adhere the 1 ¼ inch flaps together with a narrow strip of sticky tape on short edges and along scored line only.
6. Round outer corners of card on all 4 sides with corner rounder.
7. On inside flap for gift card, use an oval punch or small round punch and punch a small slit to make it easier to insert and remove the gift card.
8. To finish inside and outside of card, cut 6 pieces of patterned paper ¼ inch smaller than each panel and adhere to panels. If using a directional pattern, make sure the pattern is going in the right direction when the card is folded shut. Round the corners of the 4 pieces that attach on each side of the rounded sides of the card.
9. Cut a 1 x 7 ¼ inch piece of cardstock for bellyband. Score at 2 ¼ and 5 ¼ inches. Fold on score lines and wrap around closed card. Overlap ends and adhere together to form the band.
10. Using foam adhesive, adhere a punched out sentiment to overlapped portion of the bellyband, and slide band over folded gift card holder.
