Gift Card Holders, Part Two.....

 Here's the second of four gift card holders we made.  I used the Greetings of the Season stamp set again - boy, am I glad they carried that one over!!!  Below is the inside of the card.
Here's a few recommendations if you want to make this gift card holder.  The card itself is a piece of 4 1/4" x 11" piece of cardstock folded in half.  I then ran it through the Big Shot using the Top Note Die but dropped it down a little so the fold wouldn't be cut completely off.  If you don't like the little openings, you could drop it down even further.  The front of the card is another piece of cardstock cut out with the Top Note Die but I stamped the branches and placed the Cherry Cobbler punched border paper and the patterned paper before I ran it through so they would be cut along with the cardstock.  I used the Pinking Hearts Border Punch which is retired but you could use the Dotted Scallop Ribbon Border Punch instead.

For the inside, I ran a small piece of the patterned paper through the Top Note separately after adding the Cherry Cobbler punched border strip.  I then used Multipurpose Glue along the outside edges and attached it to the card leaving a pocket.

Finally, I stamped the "Merry Christmas", the branch and poinsettia inside (using a post-it note mask) and stamped another poinsettia and cut that one out.

Here's what you will need to duplicate this card:
Stamps:     Greetings of the Season, Watercolor Winter & Bring on the Cake ("a gift for you") 
Inks:          Garden Green & Cherry Cobbler
Paper:       Very Vanilla, Cherry Cobbler & Be of Good Cheer Designer Series Paper
Other:       Top Note Die, a border punch, Pearls
