Gift Card Holder

This is one of the best idea's I have seen around on SCS and on some blogs.  I added a pocket for a gift card holder.  They also work well for holding money.  I love this!  General instructions that I followed are on this blog.

 I also added some measurements below.

This is the package closed.

Pull the top

Fabulous!  I made a little pocket for the gift card or money.
The bottom of the 'package' is 8-1/2x4-1/4.  Score and fold in half at 4-1/4.  Decorate.
The insert is 3-1/4x6.  Score this piece at 4-3/4.  Fold and secure with sticky strip on each side.
The top of the 'package' is 3x5-1/2.  Score at1-1/2 lengthewise.  The ribbon is only tied around the front part.  This piece is attached to the inserted part with dimensionals.

Something Christmas, Something New

The Creative Challenge for December that Shelli has given is to use our favorite technique.  Mine is an older one and is the Rock n Roll Technique.  I LOVE it.  It is my hands down favorite technique.  Since it is December I made a Christmas card.  I couldn't resist though and made a second card using some new stuff that I just got from my preorder for the Occassions Mini.  There is a lot of beautiful stuff in there.

Christ is Born is a perfect set to Rock n Roll with.  I inked in Crumb Cake, rocked n rolled in Cherry Cobbler and then again in Early Espresso.  Do you see the bow?  (I know, hard to miss)  See that Crumb Cake Seam Binding Ribbon?!  LOVE, love, love it!!!  It is new and in the Occassions Mini!  WOOOHOOO!!!

This card uses the new set Build a Blossom.  It is just fabulous!  AND there is a punch that punches out those petals.  I LOVE that.  I rocked n rolled the petals and the leaves.  The petals I inked in Baja Breeze and rocked n rolled in Not Quite Navy.  The leaves I inked in Pear Pizzazz and the rocked n rolled in Always Artichoke.  I absolutely LOVE these colors together.  And the designer paper!  Oh my!
