Here's an idea for a Male Greeting Card with Gift Card Holder.  The outside is a Shirt with Bow Tie and Buttons and the inside a slide out Card with a Gift Card Holder.

The patterned paper is from the Kaleidoscope Designer Series Paper. 

Basic Black Card stock
2 @ 4" x 5"
1 @ 3 3/4" x 3/8"
Extra card stock for the Bow Builder Punch, 3 @ 1/2" Circle Punch and 'for you' from the Mini Treat Bag Thinlits Dies

Whisper White DSP
2 @ 3 3/4" x 4 3/4"

@ 8 1/2" x 5 1/2"
1 @ 3 1/2" x 2"
1 @ 3 3/4" x 3/8"

To make the Shirt, score the DSP on the long edge at 2 1/8" each end. Run a strip of adhesive along the bottom inside between the 2 fold lines.  Fold in the sides to create the shirt. Fold each shirt collar back (gently) and adhere with a glue dot.

Make a Bow from the Bow Build Punch and attach to the Shirt under the collar with strong adhesive.  Using the extra Basic Black card stock, punch 2 circles close to each other with the 1/16" circle handheld punch to create the button holes, then punch out with the 1/2" circle punch.  Repeat for the remaining 2 buttons and attach to the shirt with Dimensionals.

For the Card front & back, attach Whisper White card stock to the Basic Black card stock.  When attaching the DSP to the front of the card, don't adhere the top as the gift card needs to slot inside.  Attach the black strip with adhesive and the 'for you' greeting with tombow. Attach the DSP strip to the back of the card and write your greeting.  The Card will nicely fit inside the shirt.

This Project is quite easy to complete and would great in many of the Stampin' Up! DSP's.

Happy stamping,
