Gift card holder using G45 papers and Quietfire Design sentiment

Hello Crafty Friends!

I learned a few years ago to keep gift card holders in my card stash- especially at Christmas time.  This year I decided to make gift cards similar to the gift card template I used in March.  The base for the card shown today is 4" and the flap was 2".
Using the edited 4x12 template above, I formed the card base.  An image was cut from Graphic 45 paper and double matted on gold and red card stock. The sentiment "Compliments of the Season" is from the same collection.
Gold marker was applied to the edges of the image, sentiment and card base.
The flap tucks under the image.  The image was applied using foam tape.
Profile of the card.
The left side has a pocket for a gift card...
...and the right side has Quietfire Designs' lovely Christmas sentiment.
When the card was completed I added Stickles to the holly, tree and frame.

The card is festive, of course I love the Graphic 45 papers and three gift card bases can be made from one 12x12 Graphic 45 sheet.  

Supplies used:
- Quietfire Design stamp "Christmas is a piece of home"
- Patterned papers: Graphic 45 (Christmas Past, Twas the Night Before Christmas)
- Card stock (red, gold)
- Sakura gold pen, foam tape, Stickles, Jet black Archival ink

Thanks for stopping by!  Have a great weekend!
