Gift Card Holder *slash* card

Hi everybody, I am on a roll!! Here is another challenge entry.

This time the challenge is over at More than Favors with Paula!  The Wacky Wednesday challenge this week is to create a project that can hold a gift card.

I made this gift card holder like a pocket card.  The cool thing is that instead of just a tag on the inside, there is a card that opens up to reveal the space for a gift card or cash to be slipped in.
Yep, no Cricut used here! :(

Here is the front of the card.  I used Heidi Grace paper and a pink card stock card base.

The pocket part of the card measures 4 1/2" x 11", fold at 5 1/2" and then fold down the flap at 1 1/2".
Patterned paper to decorate the front includes on piece 4" x 4" and one 1 1/4" x 4". I rounded the top corners with my corner chomper. When I sealed the sides of the pocket, usually I'd just use ATG tape, this time I used some foam tape so that it could accommodate the thickness of the gift card without being a tight fit.

The "tag" is a card that measures 5" x 3 1/2" (also with rounded corners) so the patterned paper for this piece measures 4 3/4" x 3 1/4".

The pocket measures 2" x 3 1/4" and is attached with ATG tape on the sides and bottom. You can kind of see that I attached the ribbon tag pull with a backwards brad.  I hid the wings of the brad with my bow on the front of the tag.

I added a little crocheted flower a good friend gave me, added some Queen & Co. pearls to set off the flowers center pearl.  The "Happy, Happy Birthday" and the "Enjoy" is from Scrappy Moms, Simple Sentiments set.

Thanks so much for visiting me here at  I'd love to hear what you think.  Feel free to become a follower or sign up for my email updates (provided through FeedBurner).  I'd love to share my crafting journey with you! - Cheryl
