Gift Card Holders

Hi Everyone!

Today I have a gift card holder for you.  I was asked by a local boutique to come up with some ideas for gift cards and gift wrapping (for jewelry). So here is what I came up with for the GC holder. I left the inside blank (at their request) for their branded gift card. They want to adhere the card with special glue instead of slits to hold the card.  I thinks this was a great idea because you don't really need an envelope.  I can also punch a hole at the top of the card and they can hang/display them on the sales counter.  Super plain and nothing cutesy! It's not that kind of boutique. I had this idea in mind and then saw the Fantabulous Cricut Challenge. Create a card or other item and include a rectangle and a triangle on your project. Fits in perfectly! Hope you enjoy! Wish me luck, hope they like it! 

Cartridge - Tie the knot, TBBM
Paper - DCWV - Mi Casa Stack
Ribbon - Micheals

Holy Moly, that criss-cross card is on a cartridge? I need to bump "Tie the Knot" further up my wish list. This would make life SO much easier! Your gift card holder is beautiful! I love the papers and embossing; perfect for a boutique!
