12 Days of Christmas - Day 1 - Gift Card holder

I have been demonstrating these in my clubs and decided to share this as my first 12 days of Christmas project. Gift cards are great to give during the Christmas Season; however, you can give them for birthdays, anniversary, etc. You can decorate them for whatever the occasion may be.

This is the inside. You can also make these as your Christmas Card and add a family photo instead of a gift card. As you can see I have added a photo of my girls inside this one.

This is the second design that we made in club. I put Dazzling Diamonds on the Dove and on the Roof of the House using the Two Way glue pen. It doesn't show up well in the photo but it really adds alot to the project.

Here is how we made these:
Using the first design to go by....Cut a piece of cardstock at 4 3/4 x 3 3/4. This will be the "base" of your holder. Cut a piece of Designer Series paper at 3 1/2 x 11. Score this at 4 1/2 and 9 using the SU! cutter with scoring blade attached. Fold up and attach the smallest half with brads. This is the actual part that will hold your gift card or photo. Adhere this to the "base" of your card. Cut a piece of coordinating cardstock at 4 1/4 x 3 1/4. Also cut a piece of Whisper White cardstock at 4 x 3. Then decorate. On the one with the House on it you stamp the front of the Whipser White cardstock with the house from the To You and Yours stamp set in chocolate chip ink. Then stamp "From our house to yours" over the house again in chocolate chip ink. Adhere the Baja Breeze and Whisper White cardstock together. Tie a ribbon around it. Adhere it to the front of the Designer Series paper. Viola! Your done.

Here is the supplies you will need to make these:
To You and Yours Stamp set
Chocolate Chip Classic Ink Pad or Baja Breeze Classic Ink (depending if you are making the house or the Dove)
Ski Slope Designer Series Paper (this was used on both of the designs made in club)
