Gift Card Holders day 1

Over the next few days I'll post some ideas for gift card holders.

This first one is super easy.  You can easily convert any card into a gift card holder by using the Small Open Ended envelopes (#107286, p. 171, $7.50 for 20) and cut them in half. I punched a half circle from the open end and then glued it to the inside of the card. 

This next one uses the same idea.  The stamp set is Welcome Christmas and the colors are Cherry Cobbler, Crumb Cake and Early Espresso.  That food combination sounds as good as the color combination looks.  Do you think that was the intent when they chose the new color names?  Notice the shadowed square behind the main image? It's not a traditional shadow stamp.  I inked up a clear block and stamped that directly on the paper. That's right, just the block with no actual rubber on it. Too cool!

Here's the same layout with Ornate Blossom instead of  Welcome Christmas.  The first one uses Cajun Craze and More Mustard. 

The final card is the same as the one above, but with Baja Breeze, Perfect Plum and Crumb Cake as the shadow. 
Can you guess how I got the shape on the sides of the sentiment? Post your answer in the comments and I'll post the answer in a couple of days.
