Gift Card Holder

Wow, where did the time go? I can't believe that it is already the middle of July! I sure hope that you are all enjoying the nice weather. We have been waiting patiently for the sun to show and long and behold, it finally came the first of July! Woohoo! I'm loving the heat!

This is a birthday gift card holder I made for my niece who just turned 10! Can you believe double digits - which means a whole new chapter in her life.

I used an old retired stamp set "Totally Cool". This is one set that I don't think I can give up! I absolutely love it for girly cards!

I stamped the girl 5x - once on my main card front, and 3x each on different DS scrap paper. I cut out the pants, the purse, the headband and the two shopping bags and paper pieced them onto my main image. I also stamped her face once again in Chocolate Chip, cut out the sunglasses and mounted them using foam mount. Coloured her top, the present and her shoes using my ink pad.

This is the inside of the card. As you can see, I made the gift card holder into a standard size card (4 1/4" x 5 1/2"). This way you can still write a message and insert your gift card without losing your gift card.

I am absolutely thrilled with the way it turned out!
