Grab Bag Challenge

This challenge was to take a card that we received that inspired us.  So....I went through my cards, swaps and Christmas cards from last year.  What inspired me the most when I went through all my cards was this one.  It was given to me in a swap last year from a very good friend of mine and a Stampin' Up! demonstrator, Laurie Z.  Thanks Laurie!

Everyone can use Gift Card holders during this time of year.  And what better way to do it in a CARD!  I Love how Laurie put the holder on the front of the card, instead of inside. 

 Here is my version of the Gift Card Holder.

I made my holder out of Real Red and Whisper White Cardstock.  Are you asking yourself what Designer Series Paper is that???  I KNOW...isn't it great!  It is called "Candy Cane Christmas" and you can find it in the Holiday Mini Catalog.  But not for long!  I used the NEW "Northern Frost Decorative Strip" to cut out the Snowflake and then put a little bling on it with a Real Red Glimmer Brad.  These are also found in the Holiday Mini Catalog.  For the "Merry Christmas" and the Snowflakes on the inside, they are from the stamp set called "Snow Swirled".  You can find this set in the Idea Book & Catalog
