Gift Card Holders

I found this fantastic new challenge site called Festive Friday. The challenges are all Christmas related. Although I missed the first one, I'm getting in under the wire for the second one. We were given a photo for inspiration. 

I decided to make some gift card holders to tie into Sandi's Bank on Christmas. Sandi is giving us a monthly prompt so that we have everything in place by the time Christmas rolls around. This month we are to make six gift card holders.

Here are my first two holders. I used the colors from Festive Friday and went with their rustic country theme.  I used a two-sided Christmas paper and matching stickers from my stash of Webster's Pages.  The leaves are from the Tim Holtz die.  Burlap also from my stash, cut into a strip of trim.  The holders are kept together with a Velcro type fastener.
