One more gift card holder...

 Here is a gift card holder that I made for my grandparents. Between my sister and I (and our husbands) we gave our grandparents 6 gift cards to area restaurants, grocery stores and wal-mart. This is what I made to present it!

Stamps: Snowfall, Snowfall Additions
Paper/Ink/Ribbon: PTI Spring Rain, Vintage Cream
Pearls: Paper Studio,Snowflake Punch: Marvy; Glitter: Martha Stewart

I started with PTI's Vintage Cream cardstock and trimmed it to 3" wide. I used 3 sheets (I think) and scored at 2.5 inches. There were 6 "hills" total. I stamped the top and bottom of each with the small snowflakes from the PTI Snowfall and Snowfall Additions stamp sets in PTI Spring Rain ink.

For the cover I used PTI Spring Rain CS(Though the color in the picture is way off for some reason. It is the same CS and INK that I used in the other gift card holders below). The medium snowflake from the Snowfall set with the cordinating Marvy Snowflake punch, Vintage Cream ink and Martha Stewart glitter made the snowflake. PTI Spring Rain and Vintage Cream ribbon and Paper Studio pearls were also used. The gift card holder is held closed by a Basic Grey magnet hidden under the flap, and I used the Stampin Up slit punch to hold the gift cards in place.

I really need to write out my descriptions/ steps BEFORE I give something away! I do not have the dimensions for the outside of the holder, but I made the inside part first and measured the depth.

My craft room will be done this weekend! The island is painted and ready for my Dad to come over and screw it together (It is in 5 pieces.. and it is HUGE!) and the shelves are in my room waiting for me to paint them tonight! They would have been painted last night, but Eric and I went out to dinner and a movie, and did not get home until almost 10. I can not wait to be able to put things away so that I can start scrapping again! There will be plenty of room for a friend (or 3) to come over and create with me!
