Christmas Gift Card Holder!

I was lucky enough to have the day off today!! Yippee!! As you can see from all my posts I spent my whole time crafting, and LOVED every second of it!!

This will probably be the last post for tonight, I am off to play a mean game of Dodge-ball with the neighborhood kids! Wish me luck!

I give out lots of gift cards at Christmas time, so I wanted to make some really fun holders for them.

This is the front:

 This is the back:

 This is the inside:

I had so much fun making this!
I used Wild Card Cartridge Page 46. The exact size to fit a gift card is to cut it at 4 1/4"
I measured and cut the extra pieces for the front and back. You can cut liners but I could not seem to match them up the way I wanted.
The gingerbread men are from Stretch your Imagination. I used Peachy Keen faces and the DecoArt Snow writer to decorate them. Added lots of bling!
