Vintage Gift Card Holder

Happy Friday Everyone! Today I have a Vintage Gift Card Holder to share with you, this was a lot of fun to create. I found just the perfect stamps to use at The Rubber Cafe, I chose G-765 Congratulations, G-718 Vine Border and C-336 Swirled Bells. I tied the gift card with a Olive Green Satin ribbon just to make it look elegant.
.I used Le Romantique pattern paper collection from Graphic 45 and Finesse Swirls Pearls from Want2Scrap.
I cut decorative pieces from the pattern paper, sanded the edges and stamped the Vine Border at the bottom, added a Kimmie Bracket Pearl from Want2Scrap at the top and repeated the step for the back side of the holder.
I inked all the edges with Donna Salazar's new line of ink from Clearsnaps/Colorbox this color is Truffle, love
 it. The ink stay really wet so it was easy to blend the entire gift card hold with just a little ink.
I stamped the Vine Border and Congratulations and slipped the gift card between the layers after I die cut the slit with a Spellbinders die.
Here's a close up to see that both sides of the gift card holder are identical.
I just love that Vine Border, I think I use it alot, I guess should see about getting another border to use but this one is my favorite.
I even stamped the back of my gift card golder using the yes you guessed it the Vine Border and the Swirled Bells. I hope you have enjoyed my little creation for this weeks challenge. Have a wonderful weekend and I will see you right back here next Friday. Crafty Smiles, Terre
