Gift Card Holder for a Guy


My brother-in-law loves Amazon gift cards, so that's what we got for him for his birthday!  To dress it up a bit, I made a fun holder using the My Creative Time Embossed Gift Card Holder.  I used some double-sided My Mind's Eye Patterned paper, which gave me the cute guitar pattern for the outside, and the red pattern on the inside.


This sentiment from the My Creative Time Gift Card Sentiments stamp set pops on the red when heat embossed with white embossing powder.


For his name, I used a strip of the paper that is on the inside of the gift card holder and heat embossed letters from the Close to My Heart Vintage Type stamp set.


My tag was cut at 2 1/2" from the Cricut Art Philosophy cartridge and stamped with the coordinating Close to My Heart stamp, also from Vintage Type.  The "HB2U" stamp is from the Papertrey Ink Birthday Bash Sentiments stamp set.


Here's a little peek at the inside.
