Try Something New with a Gift Card Holder

The Challenge Your Stash group on SCS has one premise - Use What You Have (no buying allowed for the monthly challenge). Each month one of the members chooses a theme and we create based on that theme. Then on the 28th, we reveal what we've made.

This is the 28th!

Vickie is our hostess this month and she asked us to make a gift card holder. AND... since this is Tuesday and I normally do a "Try Something New" post on Tuesdays, I searched for a type of gift card holder that I've never made before.

Of course, from the front, it looks pretty much like a normal card...

But when you open the card, the gift card sort of pops up! 
How fun is that!?!?!?

I'm sorry you can't really read the sentiment on the card. It says...
Life is about the small stuff, Merry Merry Christmas

There really isn't any good way to get a picture of this kind of card. UGH! It really is a fun technique; it just doesn't photograph well.

But it really is kind of cute and fun! I like this kind of gift card holder and just might make one again some time.

Thanks for stopping by my blog today!

Sensational! Love the gift card fold and the holiday fun this has with the perfect paper! I have this same stamp and was looking at it a few days ago - time to get inky! Fabulous take on the challenge!
