Gift card

My dd's birthday is today. She is 24. I have no idea how that happened. And really I am only 25 so it is just impossible. lol. So one of her presents is an i-tune gift card so I made a holder.

I used wrapped Tilda for the front. She is colored with copics on cyrogen paper. It is so nice to work on. I just love it. I got it from stampinscrapin here. I will definitely be getting more. As Kaitey loves black and pink I chose those colors even though the dp is really a dark dark brown from the bittersweet collection by basic grey. The gift card was an unusual size so I created my own pocket. The paper was 7 3/4 x 6 1/2" scored at 2" and 2 1/4" on each side and then 1" at the bottom with the corners cut out and a rounded corner punch. Here is the back so you have a better idea of what I did.

 The stamps on the back are from the angel company. 
Here is a picture with the gift card.

I used a circle punch in the center but only part way down so there was a space to pull out the gift card. Besides this being a birthday present I did it for the gift card challenge on the stamping scrapping challenge blog here.
Hope you enjoy.
