Vintage Gift Card Holder

Last week was my Mother in Laws birthdya and I needed to make her a gift card holder. I went to my trusty Scallop Envelope Die {again} and these awesome colors from Color Throwdown.

I love these little kids from Greeting Card Kids. My three year old came in while I was making this and said "Mommy! Your making me!" I had to laugh. It was so sweet. I do tend to color these kids to look like my own.

Mom, did I color her like you taught me?? LOL!


I used the lovely Victorian Lace trim a well as the pearl accents to make this have a vintage feel. These pearls are so fun. And, there are a ton of them in the package. I have used them on everythign lately and I still have a ton left! They are a little trickly to handle because they are so tiny, but if you use your craft knife as the spatula, its a cinch!



How cute is that Vintage Brad? I love these! So unique!



Inside I used Flight of the Butterfly. I used the Marina Mist DSP on the envelope.



And how sweet is that lace under the edge? Love it! I used Sticky Strip to get it to stick.

Don't forget about the Ribbon Shares! They are filling up fast! I only have a couple spots left! And, if you get all three, I will throw in two extra yards for FREE! Click HERE if you are interested!
