Gift Card Holder

Happy Friday! GOOD Friday that is!

Today I want to show you another gift that will be in my daughter's Easter basket on Sunday morning. I love having an older "child" because she will appreciate this gift even if it's not toys or candy! It's holding a gift card to a college girl's heaven.... Starbucks!

It is made from a sheet of card stock cut to 4 1/4" x 11" and scored at 4 1/4" and 8 3/4". After I folded it, I embossed the flap using the Petals a Plenty embossing folder and the Big Shot. I sponged over the top of the embossed area with ink to really make the flowers stand out. I took another piece of card stock and stamped the little bird and then colored it in. I punched a slot for the gift card using the Word Window punch.

Since there is no slot or other way of keeping the holder closed, I made a band out of coordinating designer series paper that slides down over the top and then made a flower using designer series paper and the scallop circle punch.

My lighting was not the best when I was taking these photos and the card looks way more awesome in person.

Thank you for stopping by and, in case this weekend gets away from me, Happy Easter to you all!
