Jessica's Gift Card Holder

My niece Jessica is a wonderful artist ... after graduation next spring, she hopes to attend college to study art. So, of course, I got her a Michael's gift card for Christmas and made this gift card holder for her. I used the elf from Hello Kitty Greetings, cut at 8 inches. I added white velvet flocking and Martha Stewart tinsel glitter to the fur trim and red velvet flocking on her hat and shoes. I used Stickles on the bow in her hair and, just for fun, hot-glued jingle bells to the tips of her shoes. On the back, I cut patterned paper using the blackout feature and adhered it to the main image. Then, using Tag, Bags, Boxes and More, I cut a little envelope for the gift card. I really like this one ... it was such fun to make!
