All That Scraps Gift Card Challenge

Hello! We have a fun challenge this week at the All That Scraps challenge blog - gift card holders! I decided to try to make my gift card holder in the shape of a present that you could lift the lid off of, but I still wanted it to fit in an envelope like a card.

My finished holder measures 6.25 x 4.5, which is the standard size of card that I make. The base (the Vanilla piece you can see in the second picture) measures 6.25 x 4.5. The "box" of the present is 6.25 x 3.4 and the lid is 6.25 x 1.5. The lid is attached to a piece of cardstock so it is a little sturdier and it is held on to the "box" with a brad in the corner so it can swivel to lift off. Before I attached the "box" to the base piece I set the giftcard where I wanted it to be, and then put glue around it so that once the "box" piece of DP was attached the gift card had a place to slip in.

The Details:
Stamps: Penelope and Juniper - Sweet Novmeber, Any R Holiday Greetings - both from All That Scraps
Paper: Cosmo Cricket, Very Vanilla (SU), White for image (Copic XPress)
Ink: Memento Tuxedo Black, Antique Linen, Vintage Photo and Walnut Stain Distress Inks
Skin: E000, E00,E11,R00,R20
Hair: YR14,E08,E19
Boots and Clothes: E47,E49,110,YG95,YG97
Juniper: R24,R29,R39 all w/E08 and E09 over them, Y17
Misc: Ribbon (Offray), Sakura Glaze Pen, Liquid Applique
