The fun thing about this shadow box, is you can put anything in it to personalize it:
The second template is a cute surprise purse. Now the beauty of Adela’s templates is they are not only adorable, but sizeable. The unmodified size, fits a gift card, but if you size it down to 50% you get a barbie purse … WAH!
This would be fun to give the the little Valentine girl in your home!

So, I admit it, we do a fair number of gift cards for some neices/teachers that we’re not totally sure what to buy. It took me a while to get over the idea that gift certificates weren’t all that personal of a gift … they totally are … do they like books? coffee? wine? (well not for the nieces, my brother would rightfully raise an eyebrow). What if you take the time to make the gift card look special? I think that can be the fun part.
Here’s a rather simple gift card holder (free cut) to look like a pressie:
The larger eyelet acts as a hinge on one side to open up to the gift certificate.
It was free cut, two peices of CS & then covered with Patterned paper. I made a little “U” shape on the inside of the CS, with Terrifically Tacky Tape, & the Gift Card slides right in that pocket.

Nothing fancy, just my “Pocket Card” for the challenge:
Just big enough for a gift card.
Used: Actopus to Zelephant K & Company Designer Mat Pad, Mellow Moss CS, Ric Rac from Multi craft Imports, Martha Stewart Edge Punch, 1″ Circle Punch SU.
This was a template from a Year in Cards June 2009, tutorial by Garden Girl, Kristina Werner over at Two Peas. I absolutely have to give it a go, because Kristina’s templates are wonderful for gift cards-perfect for this time of year.
Here’s my take on her tutorial:
