365 Cards Score-It Challenge: Gift Card Holder

Hey all! Happy Easter Sunday! I hope you are enjoying the day. Today is the first challenge of our Score-It Week over at 365 Cards. Wahoo!! I hope you are as excited as we are to get started. Today Pam has kicked things off with the first challenge: a Gift Card Holder. Check out 365 Cards and her personal blog for a nice tutorial on her project. I decided I wanted to participate with each challenge this week so I made up my own Gift Card Holder:

You can see that its a pocket with an insert. (I used this tutorial HERE). It is such an easy way to make a fun card, and you will love making your own!
I decided I wanted to make my insert into a tag. I added the same scallop trim from the front flap, but only glued down the very bottoms of the scallops. This way the trim can hold in my gift card! And you know what is so funny, I found this GC in my purse (cause I knew I needed one for the photo) and this baby still has money on it!! Can you believe it? It is SO old, I need to get using it! Needless to say, I got very excited to go shopping!
I used DP from Sassafras Lass Hog Heaven line. That little 'for you' tag has some faux stitching on it from the Gel-A-Tins Sewing Kit stamps set, then I drew in little stitches on top of it.

Thats it for today! Hope you like the projects you see at 365 Cards. We have been working hard to create wonderful things for you to get inspired.  Be sure to create your own cards this week because every challenge you participate in gives you another chance at winning your own Score-It Mini!!  We will see you tomorrow with another challenge!
Adeu, my sweet friends.
