Xmas gift card holder

A few weeks ago I was shown how to make this gift card holder by Lynne. I have only just got around to a Christmas version and have used a store card to show you what it will look like. You can put paper money or a small gift inside of your choice. I embossed the front panel in a cuttlebug folder and glued it to the front of the pocket. I wrapped ribbon around it near the base and added some sparkly gem stones. I punched out some snowflakes and added them to the holder with silver brads. The Christmas tree is from Craftwork cards. I wrapped some sparkly coloured thick thread around the tree, cut two notches to hold the thread at the base and glued the ends to the back. I gently rounded the edges of my tree before glueing to my pocket with silicone glue to give it a more dimentional look.

There are plenty of challenges to enter this into and the list is below.

Hi Shirley,
Hey, said I'd post a comment!!
Love your Xmas version of the gift card holder.
I have that embossing folder and wouldn't have thought to use it for Xmas, but it really works.
I'm going to try to make a few of these for my friend's Xmas sale.
