This is a very simple and quick gift card holder to make. Here are the instructions:

1. Cut your card stock 4 1/4″ X 11″ and score at 4 1/4″ and at 8 1/2″.
2. On the 2 1/2″ end punch out a 1/2 of a 1 3/8″ Circle.
3. Add sticky strip to the sides of this 2 1/2″ end and stick down to create your gift card pocket.
4. Attach a strip of DSP cut 1″ X 4 1/4″ to decorate the pocket.
5. On the top 1/2 inside attach a piece of Whisper White card stock 4″ X 4″ to write on.
6. Cut a piece of DSP 3 3/4″ X 4 1/4″ and run a piece of Gumball Green ribbon across the front and attaching the ends down on the backside. Attach this piece to the front of your gift card holder; centering it.
7. Run a piece of Cherry Cobbler card stock thru the Big Shot on the Delicate Doilies Sizzlits #126999 $21.95. Attach the Biggest doily to the front of your gift card holder as shown.
8. Cut out a Early Espresso Circle using the Big Shot and the Circles Framelits and attach to the center of the doily using dimensionals.
9. Stamp the deer from Best of Christmas #134384 $14.95 stamp set onto Whisper White card stock using Crumb Cake ink and cut out your deer using the Circles Framelits #130911 $26.95 and the Big Shot.
10. Attach your deer to the Early Espresso circle.
