Christmas Stampin' Gift Card Holder

Happy Monday Everyone!
I hope your week is starting out great. This week our hostess Sankari has challenged us to make something other than a Christmas card. She wants us to create a card that is not your typical A2 card (A2 cards usually measure 4 1/4" x 5 1/2") Create anything but an A2 card! It can be a circle card, a square card, a heart card, a star card, a Christmas tree shaped card - any shape at all.
I created a gift card holder for my project this week. I used adorable Imaginisce Christmas paper and this adorable image from The Greeting Farm from the Hope and Grace set. Isn't she cute?? I put some Stickles in her hair and on her head band to give a little more festive look. I added some cute, sparkly snowflakes but they are not showing up in the picture very well. Trust me, IRL they are so cute and sparkly!! I used a rub-on sentiment on the inside and some tiny blue gems for accent.

I cut her out with my nesties and I just cut a very simple shape for the holder. I cut an 8 1/2 x 11 sheet of cardstock in half making it 8 1/2 x 5.5. I used my Scor-Pal to score it at 2" and 6". folded up the 2" portion and used double sided adhesive to adhere the edges. Your gift card will fit perfectly in the little pouch. Fold the top portion over and you have a gift card holder. I decorated it and here it is!! I hope you like it.

Be sure to visit the Christmas Stampin' All Year Long blog to see what the other challenge divas have created. I also have them listed on my sidebar. Better get started on those cards!! We'd love for you to play along, just leave a comment and a link to your creation on the Christmas Stampin' All Year Long blog or if you upload to SCS or PCP, use the keyword CSAYL. Thank you for stopping by my blog today. Be sure to leave me a comment so I can return the favor! Don't forget to come by tomorrow to see what I have to show you.

Cathy - great card! Love the idea of making a gift card holder. I think it's funny that we used the same DP for our projects - guess we both know good paper when we see it! Great job with the challenge!
