Happy Bird day Gift Card Holder Card

Thought outside the box or should I say card when making this as a gift card holder & it is easy to make. Using 2 pieces of scrapbook paper with top layer having part of an oval punch cut out & using foam adhesive it makes for a pocket to tuck a gift card into. Just remember to measure size of gift card and use foam adhesive so the gift card does not fall to the very bottom of the pocket.

First time using the Tim Holtz Splat die which I've had for awhile. I liked the way it looked to use the TH Splat die & the negative piece from it as well. What do you think of when you see the bird stamp & the bird splat?
