Faux Leather Birthday Gift Card Holder

This is for today's LIMITED SUPPLY CHALLENGE. We were to to create a birthday gift or money card, include a butterfly somewhere on the project and use choc chip or close to cocoa. Well Tuesday's COLOR CHALLENGE - Real Kraft Chocolates helped take care of that rule, teehee. I stamped the butterfly from Flight of the Butterfly in real red then the dotted outline in choc chip and covered the dots with stickles. OK someone please tell me how in the world to make a 6X9 sheet of cs run thru a 4 1/4 X 5 1/2 Cuttlebug folder emboss the entire sheet??? gggrrr. I finally gave up and used a Fiskars folder and still am not happy with the results but I have been working on this for 3 hrs now and ready to leave it as it is.

The inside was lined with some real red pattern paper. The front was decorated with the butterfly and I finally used some monograph clear dollar stamps I picked up at Michaels in the dollar bin. Stamped in red on white then matted on kraft and then choc chip. The inside gift card holder is just a white piece of cs with the gift card attached. Happy Birthday sentiment stamped in real red
