Xmas Pop-Up Gift Card Holder w/ Rem Ornament

Created this Christmas Pop-Up Gift Card Holder after watching Simon Says Stamp video of 5 Ways to Give a Gift Card.

Used Martha Stewart score board.

For base I used Kraft cardstock that has fuzzy dots on it which is wonderful for Winter/Christmas.

Used Simon Says Stamp Stitched Square die for the part that holds the gift card & when opened the gift card pops up.

To front I added a removable Snowflake Ornament made using Cricut cartridge Artbooking. Made the ornament but could not get size to work by using actual size which I wanted to be 1 1/2" so I experimented. Added twine.

For front I stamped Scrappy Moms 'Daughter' and punched out using Stampin' Up punches.

Used BugABoo digi, Santa Presents, which I colored with Crayola pencil colors & on computer.

Used Tim Holtz Tag die for sentiment tag on inside. Stamped My Craft Spot Tiny Tags Christmas sentiment 'Ho Ho Ho'.
