A Cardinal Christmas Gift Card Holder Update below

This is for today's TECHNIQUE LOVERS CHALLENGE - Pop Up Gift Card Holder. I love making these things. I took this type of project to my last stamp retreat for the shoe box swap and it was a hit. I used vanilla for my base and Dashing DP and riding hood red for the layers. My image was stamped in black brillliance then colored with Copics and SU markers. I applied some stickles on the berries and leaves. See my blog for a picture of the inside. I prefer to have my gift card fitting in sideways so I used the word window punch and a circle punch to make my slot for the card to fit. Ribbon around to keee it closed. My sentiment is stamped in Riding Hood Red then punched with the large oval and matt of old olive punched with wide oval then trimmed to fit and popped up. It is so weird bc my youngest daughter just told me last night all she wanted for Christmas was a gift card so she could buy some clothes. Betcha can't guess who will get this gift card holder :0

Just had to come home and make another one they are just so simple to do. Here is another one for today's TECHNIQUE LOVERS CHALLENGE - Pop Up Gift Card Holder. This time I used a set being released Friday at TREEHOUSE STAMP COMPANY 1st Birthday Celebration. The idea for this set came to me one night just as I was trying to go to sleep. I got up and drew it out sent it to Ashley and now it is on rubbah for everyone to use. That is just so kewl to me. The idea for this card holder came from Shannon and Deb who have already inked their stamp and used it. Hope you like it. There are several different headers within this set. DH is always asking me "what do you want this year" and when I start naming things he looks at me like I am speaking a foreign language. LOL. I will give him this to put a gift card in then I will go buy more stampin' supplies. Teehee.
