Handmade Gift Card Holders

So, I bought a Sizzix gift card holder die. 

The first project I made, a Mother's Day card.  It is pearl pink paper with purple 'Happy Mother's Day' and cherry blossom stamps. It is accented with an EK success cherry blossom sticker. 

My second project: a Congratulations Graduate gift card holder
It has an embossed cursive congratulations stamp with a cap and tassel die cut. I embossed the fold tab with polka dots.

I also used this die to create a handmade Father's Day gift card holder. I accented the front with a wooden stamp design. I added a die cut tool box and a small metal hammer and wrench.

LGBT Cards

I figured a great way to expand my product line was to aim for a different audience. I saw these male and female 'bathroom door' icons and thought they would be really cute for a quick way to represent couples of all kinds. This design could become male + male, female + female, or female + male pretty easily.

These designs are three dimensional from the card. 

they are available in my store for $2.50:
