Gift Card Holder

Hello! Jodi here to day with a fun gift card holder.
My card is based around the Italian Flourish Doily Angel Wing.
I determined the size of the card by cutting the base the width of my angle wing, length = 11 inches long.
To shape the end of the card, I placed the scallop of the angel wing to the tip of the cardstock, cutting the die ...don't fold or score yet! TIP: It helps to tape the die in place preventing it from shifting and altering your cut. I like to use blue painters tape as the adhesive is more forgiving on your paper and your die. Also, once removed from the paper and die, just attach it to you machine and you can use it again for your next cut!
Once cut, I trimmed ¼ inch from each edge up to the diecut to achieve more of a rounded top. I proceeded to score the card at the edge of the cut, fold the rest of the card in half and score again.
Time to decorate. On the outside, I folded the Italian Flourish Doily in half decorating both front and back. I also added an Exotic Butterfly Mini.
On the inside layers of the Stackers Nesting Die Square-Scalloped and Silver Stacker Square-Classic hold my sentiment.
To create the pocket, I cut my piece 2 ½ x 3 ½. Using a Scallop Window Stacker, I cut a notch into the piece. Add adhesive only around the outer edges of three sides of the piece and attach to create the pocket.
