Gift card holders

I generally don't like to give gift cards for Christmas, but I have come to the realization that sometimes, this is the best gift for a person.

For instance, my Aunt Marilyn, who lives is North Carolina
 and is 88 yrs old.
For years I struggled with what to give her for Christmas. 
Then one year I hit on something that she really loved.  So, for the last 4-5 yrs I have given her gift cards to restaurants.

She loves this gift from us every year.  $10 at Burger King can last for a long time when you just get a burger and a senior coffee!  She loves to get out of the house for a bit of a walk each day and then stop for a quick little lunch.

I like to dress up her gift cards a bit with some kind of cute little holder.  Today I'm showing you what I made for her this year.

"Ice Penguin" (#7902) from QKR Stampede.
 Snowbaby stamp from Department 56, 1995 Rubber Stamp Heaven
Snowflakes are punched with punch from Creative Memories.
 "Poinsettia" (#83407) from Biblical Impressions
 "Joy" (#15703) from QKR Stampede.
 Snowman is from Studio G Clear Stamps
Tree is from Bo Bunny,  Merry Christmas Clearly Stamps set.
 These two are stamps from my stash and have no name on them.
Inkadinkadoo Holiday Assortment.

Thanks for stopping by today.  I'd love to hear what you think of my little gift card holder, so leave me a comment and let me know.

Until next time, Happy Crafting!
