Gift Card Holder

How can you take something boring like this:Photobucket
And come up with this?Photobucket
Well, I learned from the TP Queen herself, Terrie. I am always amazed at her creations. I thought I would try my hand. Terrie, you are right: It's easy and I must add Stinking Cute!! I used distress ink on the edges and pretty much all over! Love that stuff!!! The gorg. tinsel came from my silly sister. Here is one of Terries creations; click here.

The card just tucks into the end like so:Photobucket

I entered in the following challenges:
Card maker: Make a card with red, green, white. Use a punch and a stamp.
Catch the Bug: Anything but a card. You can only win the big pot if you use a Bugaboo stamp but since I am on my new computer... and haven't transfered everything from my old one...this is the best I can do.
Crafty Makers: Spotlight on Containers and Fancy Envelopes
A Spoon Full of Sugar: Anything goes
