Wreath Gift Card Holder

Happy Saturday!! I needed a gift card holder for the gift card we will be giving my Aunt Jay and Uncle Bill for Christmas. This is what I came up with:

{outside}
{inside}

I was inspired by this beautiful holly wreath ornament from Bronner's Christmas Wonderland:
I used a 1-inch scalloped circle punch (with a 1/2-inch circle punched out of the center of each one) for the little wreaths on the front. Some red glitter glue dots became the holly berries. The wreath image on the inside was from the $1 bin at A.C. Moore. The sentiments are both from Mark's Finest Papers.

I incorporated these challenges into my project: Thanks for stopping by!

Card Recipe:
Stamps: Mark's Finest Papers Bells on Bobtail (sentiments), Studio G
Paper: The Paper Company CS
Ink: Palette jardin moss, Marvy LePlume II black marker
Accessories: EK 1" scallop circle punch, SU 1/2" circle punch, MS modern garland edge punch, SU 2-3/8" scallop circle punch, scoring tool, Studio G red Sparkle Writer, Prismcolor pencils, red photo turn, brad
Techniques: punch art

Emily, your gift card holder is super. I love all those pretty wreaths dancing across your card. If your aunt and uncle don't want it, just fill it with 'green stuff' and send it my way. LOL Just kidding. I'm sure they will love it.

Way to snag a $1 bargain! And I love, love, love this card. The simplicity of it, the rich Christmas colors, and the way you've secured the card...it's terrific.
