Happy Birthday

This was one of my cards we made last week at card class.  I seem to be on a roll with the bright colours at the moment.  I usually reach for monochrome but these colours are just such happy colours.  This is a really quick and easy card to make and came together fast especially as I usually agonise over each card for ages.

Stamps:   Fabulous Florets and Teeny Tiny Sentiments
Ink:   Pacific Point, Tangerine Tango and Lucky Limeade
Designer Series Paper:   Beyond the Garden
Cardstock:  Tangerine Tango, Daffodil Delight, Pacific Point and Whisper White

This little gift card holder is just perfect for those people who have everything and best pressie to buy them is a gift card so they can choose their own present.  Very quick to whip up a few of these and you get two gift cards out of one sheet of A4 cardstock.

Cut a sheet of A4 cardstock in half.
Score at 4.5 cm, 13 cm and 21.5 cm. 
Fold on score lines.
Punch a 1/2 circle on the right of the bottom square (so that you can pull the gift card out). 
Adhere with sticky strip on the bottom square on the left and top edges to create a pocket for the gift card.
