Rock Princess Birthday Gift Card Holder



Hello everyone! Here is a gift card holder Birthday card that I made. I used my Imagine for all the cuts and pattern papers. I saw this card on Gloria's bog while I was "casing it" for the Crafty Sprouts challenge and thought it would be fun to make.

I cut the girl from Rock Princess ar 3.5 inches and used Glossy Accents on her eyes, lips, hairbands, guitar, and boots. The music notes were cut from Life's A Party and I also used Glossy Accents on them as well. The music paper was printed from Imagine More and the pink paper was printed from Mr. Frosty. I tied a ribbon and stamped the sentiment and the sentiment on the inside which is from Whimsical Designs Everyday Sentiments.
For the inside of the card I made the gift card holder and glued it to the center of the card. To do this I cut a 4.5 X 11 inch piece of cardstock and scored it at 3 inches from each long end and then scored it at 5.5 inches in the middle. When you fold it you will got the shape of the letter W. I then trimmed the middle peak down with scissors and a punch to get the pocket for the gift card. I wanted a larger card than just the gift card holder itself so thats why I glued it to the center of the card. I then added the pink paper over the top of the panels to hide the gift card holder inside. This card is VERY thick! LOL!
I am going to enter this into the following challenges:
1. Crafty Sprouts- Case the DT- I cased Gloria's gift card holder card, you can enter up to 2 times
2. Scrappy Moms Terrific Tuesday- Rock Princess
3. Birthday Sundaes- Any Birthday card and include a birthday sentiment on the front
I hope you all liked my card and thanks for looking! Have a wonderful weekend!
