Poinsettia Gift Card Holder

Created this Clean & Simple CAS Poinsettia Gift Card Holder using Wrap It Up Cricut cartridge. I used real size and so the flower image that you can get if you use the <Shift> image would not size properly so I cut the Poinsettia Box twice and used the Gypsy to hide the box for 2nd cut to get just the flower. I hand cut the leaves with scissors. Used one leaf as sentiment tag. Added gold glitter.

Put a Cheesecake Factory gift card inside 
like the one shown in photograph: 

Cricut: Wrap It Up 6" x 6" real size Poinsettia Box, Gypsy
glitter: gold
ink: Memento Tuxedo Black
cardstock scraps - green, red
