Christmas Gift Card Holder

This was one of the projects we did at last nights Stamp Camp, its a gift card holder and card all in one. I liked the idea of this because so often when you give a gift card you need a card to go with it anyway. I saw the design for this card on splitcoast stampers from a member named faithyc and really liked it, so I thought that I could figure out the measurements to make it for camp.
The card base is 5 1/2"x 4 1/4" normal card size and the smaller card on the front is 8"x3" then folded in half. I used the word window punch to create the slot for the gift card and had to punch it three times to get a slot that would be long enough for a gift card to fit, I also used the slit punch along the front of the base card to hold the gift card closed. Then I added some liquid applique with dazzling diamonds on the snowmen hat and earmuffs.
Supplies: It's Snow Time (sad that its retiring), Canvas BG, Happy Holidays from the Snowfall set, Ribbon, Word window punch, slit punch, piercer w/mat, Dashing designer paper, Liquid Applique and Dazzling Diamonds, Aqua brush. Colors: Real Red, Old Olive, Whisper White, Bashful Blue for snowmen.
Thanks Faith :)
