Holiday Double Slider Surprise Gift Card Holder - CTD523

Hello there and happy Wednesday!  Today starts the last Color Throwdown Challenge for this year and we have some perfect colors for the holiday season.
For my card, I used the Lawn Fawn stamp set Thanks a Latte along with the Thanks a Latte dies to create a slider card. I made two of these slider cards to hold Starbucks gift cards for a couple of my son’s teachers at his school. This was the first time I’ve used the new Double Slider Surprise die to create a slider card and at first I thought it would be difficult to put together but after watching the video here, it was a snap.
To create my slider card, I stamped a bunch of the images from the Thanks a Latte set and colored them with Copic markers then die cut them out. Next I used the Double Slider Surprise dies and die cut all of the main pieces from white card stock. I used some older North Pole Doodlebug paper along with some kraft card stock for the actual slider and some green woodgrain Knock on Wood paper for on my card base which I die cut using the Outside In Stitched Rectangle Stackables dies. I’m actually running low on Christmas paper so I guess it’s time to buy some more. I used foam tape to adhere the slider card portion to my card base so its easier to get your fingers in there to pull the slider tabs. That and it gives my son an area to write a message to his teacher inside the card. 
Above and below are a few close up shots and it’s difficult to see but I added some Wink of Stella glitter pen in the center of each snowflake for a little sparkle and I popped up the whipped cream, marshmallow and snowflake one the top main panel with foam tape. Also you’ll notice below I stamped the enjoy sentiment from the Tiny Tag Sayings set onto a little banner. What I did was to die cut a whole banner using the banner die from the Double Slider Surprise dies and then die cut it a second time to the size I wanted but only running it through my die cut machine half way.
