Masculine Birthday Giftcard holder

Hi everyone, thanks for stopping by. I've been quite busy these days with a big project, going to school and planning a big trip to Mexico after Thanksgiving and returning just before Christmas... I'm cutting it close with the holidays... not much time for shopping, but it's the only time I can get away and the weather is awesome that time of year. Halloween is about two weeks away and I'm already gitty about Christmas holiday... I'm playing "The Holiday" movie (Cameron Diaz, Kate Winslet, Jude Law, Jack Black) as I'm typing away on my blog... lol The weather has changed in So. Cal. again, .... It was nice and toasty on Monday and today we have clouds and a bit chilly... 68 degrees and I'm chilly... I'm sure some folks are rolling their eyes at the thought of that number being thought as chilly... that's room temperature for

Anyway, today's creation was thanks to Allison Ohran's tutorial for this brilliant gift card holder. I made several for different occasions, because this was so easy to make. I started with SU! Chocolate chip cardstock for the base, then SU! Kiwi kiss dsp(retired) and embossed it with Cuttlebug Spots and dots folder. For the centerpiece I used SU!Crumb cake cardstock and layered it with SU! Very vanilla. The sentiment is SU! Birthday wish stamped in Kiwi kiss ink. And last I lifted the centerpiece with pop-up dots  and added the thin twine. To keep the mini card closed I used thin velcro pieces and the SU! Short and sweet set for this inside. I hope you like it.Toodles.
