Gift Card Holder

Good morning everyone.  Today I am playing along with the challenge over at Caardvarks - create a gift card holder.  I give lots of gift cards at Christmas - only because people are so difficult to shop for - I would rather give a gift card so that they can get something that they really want instead of giving them something that will just be put into a closet.  I personally love getting gift cards simply because I love shopping!!!

My gift card holder was created using my Cricut Expression along with the Trim The Tree cartridge.  I purchased this cartridge (early Christmas gift for me) during my Black Friday shopping.  The images are very "lacy" looking. 

The center image is from the "A Merry Little Christmas" set by JustRite, stamped with Memento Tuxedo Black, colored with Copics, and punched with a SU circle punch.

This is a look at the inside area which holds the gift card.  I pulled out my neglected sewing machine to stitch the holder section.  The stamped image is from 2 JustRite stamp sets - "Hearts Come Home" and "From Our House", stamped with Memento Tuxedo Black and Memento Cottage Ivy and colored with Copics.  The border is diecut with Spellbinders Labels 1.

This photo shows a closeup of the gift card pocket.
That's it for today.  Thanks for stopping in for a visit today.  Have a great day!!
