Gift Card Holder

I saw this made by Vicki and I knew I had to case it!
Cardstock: Very Vanilla, Cherry Cobbler, Always Artichoke, Designer Paper K & Company I was out of Deck the Halls
Punches: 1 1/4 circle 119861, Large Snowflake119852, Oval 119863, Large Oval 119855 
Ink: Cherry Cobbler, Button from my stash. Ribbon 5" long.
Stamp Set: Jolly Old Saint Nick 121321

Directions: 1 piece of 4 x 8 cardstock(cherry cobbler) folded in half. 1 piece of designer paper 3.3/4 x 3.3/4. 1 piece of contrasting cardstock(always artichoke) 3 x 4 1/4, 1 piece of constrasting designer paper 1 1/4 x 4. Two scrap pieces of each cardstock color used to make bow. 1 piece of Very Vanilla 2x2 to punch snowflake out of. 1 piece of Very Vanilla cardstock 1 x 3 for greeting and 1 piece of cardstock 1 1/4 x 3 1/4 to layer greeting. To assemble Fold 4 x 8 pice in half and punch the 1 1/4 in circle half way down leaving a half circle punched. Do the same to the designer paper, tape ribbon down to designer paper then tape it down to the front of your gift card. The half circle punch is so you can see the gift card. Fold the 3 x 4 1/4 in half and using red tacky tape attach bottom of the back side only 1/2 inch down from the top. This leaves room to remove the card. When you punch out the ovals for your bow, punch the smaller oval first then center the larger oval over the punched out area. You'll have to hold your punches in your hand looking at it from the back. Punch 3 of one color and 2 of the contrasting color. Tape down to the back side of your top. Punch out snowflake and tape down greeting first then snowflake. Using a glue dot I added a button from my stash. Using velcro dots to hold the top down put in each corner. Volia, what a great gift card holder. Thanks for stopping.Brenda
