Pop up gift card holder + giveaway

First the giveaway.. not mine.. over at the Creative Cutter Room!! Head over and see how to enter for your chance to win 2 cricut carts & 2 embossing folders!!

Now onto my project. I made my very first gift card holder.. I've made them before but they were more like pockets that could hold a gift card or money etc. anyway... lol.

I found a tutorial for this pop up gift card holder HERE! It's actually a lot more simple than you'd think. I did have a few problems with it. I couldn't get it to close and I had to add a little strip to help pop the gift card up. No biggie thow.. I actually didn't even add the strip, my husband did... he's an engineer LOL!!!

Recollections card stock (red & green)
DCWV Christmas collect (holly patterned paper)
Recollections stamps (Merry Christmas on front of card)
ATG gun
Green bakers twine
Terrifically tacky tape (for the pop up part so it was more strong)
red ink (inking the edges of the papers)
green ink (the sentiment & inking around sentiment)
red zig marker ("enjoy" on the inside)
I am entering this gift card holder/card into the following challenge:

Yesterday we took the girls to get their pics with Santa.. I'll do their update posts sometime this weekend.. maybe even today. :)

Thanks for stoppin' by and have a great day!
