Colorado Inspired Wedding Gift Card Holder

My brother-in-law go married in Colorado over the summer and the wedding decor was inspired by the beautiful mountains surrounding Denver.  We gave the new married couple a gift card and I wanted to design a gift card holder that would be in keeping with this natural theme.

Here is how I created it:
I used Stampin Up's "Top Note" bigz die to cut the gift card holder as well as the interior pocket.  To create the gift card holder I folded a 4.25" x 5.5" piece of card stock in half.  I place the folded edge just below the cut line on the Top Note die. I then cut another Top Note from the dies and cut it in half.  I ran some tombo adhesive around the 3 side of my interior pocket and glued it to the folded I just made holder.  

Next, I needed to create the embellishment on the front.  I embossed the outer pocket with the Stampin Up "Woodgrain" textured impressions embossing folder.  Cut a piece of burlap from the Apothacary Framelits dies, stamped and clear embossed a sentiment from the "Label Love" Stampin Up stampset.  I used stampin write markers on the "Tags Til Christmas" pine cone image for the rustic feel.

Now it is time to assemble, I used Stampin Up dimensional, glue dots to hold it all together.

I hope you enjoyed this gift card holder and may it inspire you to get crafty for a special occasion.
Happy crafting,
