365 Cards: Black White and Red all Over!

Today's 365 Cards Shortcuts Week Challenge is to only use the colors Black, White and Red. I got to use one of Shortcuts pre-cut pre-scored Gift Card Holder Folder. These are SO fast to make and SO fun. I think it is a necessity to have these on hand for any gift card occasion. And really that is ANY occasion! Here is my holder's outside:

Lots of the three chosen colors (I did add in a little yellow for the centers... Gloria would be so proud ; )  And of course I couldn't call it good until I used a button!
Here is a top view. You can see I added in some black patterned paper for the inside flaps.
Here is a better look. You insert the gift card  into that middle flap. Of course I totally forgot to get out a gift card for the picture, but I think you get the idea right? Head on over to Shortcuts to check out these wonderful things. They come in 4 colors too! How can you not totally love that? You can't not... if that makes any sense ; )

So with that, what are you up to on this beautiful Tuesday?  I was thinking of  taking the kids to the beach but we went to the pool yesterday and we feel tuckered out. We will have to wait and see what the day brings. Hope your day is full of sunshine and flowers!

Stamps: Papertrey Ink Floral Frenzy (flower), Beautiful Blooms (stem) Birthday Basics (sentiment), Polka Dot Basics
Ink: Papertrey Ink Pure Poppy, SU! Summer Sun, Basic Black
Paper: Shortcuts Gift Card Holder Folder, Papertrey Ink Stampers White, Black & White Patterned Paper
