Gift Card Holders

I hope all of you had a wonderful Christmas!  Mine was so busy, I can't believe it's all over!
I meant to post these last minute gift card holder ideas before Christmas and completely forgot!  So, here they are anyways; you could take the basic idea and alter it for any occasion:
This first one is made using Sizzix's In The Bag die with the movers and shapers magnetic die, Mini Reindeer and 25 set.  I cut out the 25 with the bag die and adhered patterned paper behind the openings.  The deer was cut out with paper and chipboard.  The papers here are from Kaisercraft's Turtle Dove collection.
My next package is cut out with the Tim Holtz Pillow Box die (with Tim Holtz paper) and the insert is with his movers and shapers Wish die.  I covered the word, wish, with Ranger's Crackle Accents. The poinsettia's are cut out with Tim Holtz's movers and shapers mini Poinsettia die and red kraft Coredinations paper, topped off with Rock Candy Dry Glitter.  The leaves are from Sizzix's Birds and Branches Decorative strip, also cut out with Green Kraft Coredinations paper.

This little box is actually the Suitcase XL die from Sizzix.  I cut it out with mat board called Little Sizzles, from Sizzix and then embossed with the Diamond and Circles textured impressions folder.  After painting a layer of turquoise, silver, and brown paint, wiping off the excess in between each layer; I cut out the trees with my movers and shapers mini Pine Tree die, overlapping the middle one.
With one of the cut out trees, I stained it in a few places and adhered to the front.
My final gift card holder is made from the Movers and Shapers Pocket Envelope and Kaisercraft Turtle Dove paper.  I added the bird and leaves ( Kraft Core Core'dinations paper) cut out from my Sizzix Birds and Branches Decorative strip die.  I inked, then applied Rock Candy Dry Glitter to the leaves and bird.  Just add a ribbon to the branches and you are done!

I get a lot of use out of these Mover and Shapers dies, there are so many different looks you can get just by adding a different mini magnetic die to cut out the center.

Have a great New Year!
