Gift Card Holder . . 1st BD

 This is a Gift Card Holder, rather than a traditional card it is a ""and the winner is"" type card!. You do the front or a face of a card and mount into an envelope type frame. This card was made with three of the Cottage Cutz dies, Surprise Phrase, Eyelet Circle and Birthday Peeker Bear. I made a pouch type slop for the gift card and sat the bear peeker over the edge. The bear head was mounted on foam dots to make it level with the thickness of the gift card. The corners of the card face were punched with a bubble corner punch and than the front of the card was mounted on a brighter card stock. The color than showed through, I cut assorted color dots and added like confetti in the corners.
 I made the bear pink with rose ink highlights.  All the colors in her hat were used in the rest of the card.

 I used the verse SURPRISE centered on a eyelet circle. . on the outside of the flaps. Almost like a buckle. The envelope frame was made with swiss dot card stock for texture. Because the inside of the card is thick and the envelope frame is heavy card stock. . the envelope frame does not want to stay closed.
As you can see. . I did not glue any of the flaps. I also made the envelope frame smaller than a traditional envelope so you can than put this into a envelope to mail or give. This way when the person who receives the card pulls it out of the mailing style envelope. . . . the flaps will automatically open because of the bulk of the paper and. . ""It POPs Open""  This is a good office style card because everyone who contributed to the gift card can write a comment on the flaps of the envelope frame. Lotz of places to write!

Thanks Barry
