gift card holder take three

I was able to get one final gift card holder designed and finally settled on a quote for the inside. Can you tell I love this stamp set. Now to try to find time to make a few more using the three designs before we leave for the in-laws Sat morning. I still have to finish doing a load of laundry, finish throwing a few clothes in the suitcase and entertain the little man, me thinks me shouldn't have procrastinated

I used the sketch from Inspirational Card Sketches
I also tried my best to follow the challenge at Tuesday Morning sketches. The challenge was to use 1 tag, 1 hidden message and lots of glitter. I'm not a huge fan of the mess glitter leaves so for me this is lots of glitter. The is glitter on the word Santa on the outside of the card and glitter on Santa's hat and his cuffs. For the tag I folded a peice of paper in half, lined the folded edge slightly above the bottom cut line of the Sizzix tag. I then scored the back side of the tag and cut off the scallop part on the front tag. I folded the scallop down to create the closure

The paper is retired paper from The Angel Company
The Santa saying and the underwear is from Whimsie Doodles

The Santa on the tag is from The Angel Company

The saying inside the tag is printed off my computer.
