i{heart}papers Challenge 3

Thursdays challenge for the i{heart}papers Birthday Bash was to make a card that is a gift card holder!  Here is what I came up with:

I've been mulling over an idea for a gift card holder for a while now, mostly to find a way to use up the leftovers from when made these cards.  I had an 11x4 strip of paper left over for every pop-up card I made, and I experimented with a few folds to finally get this design right. 

I used this weeks Sketch Challenge over at Kenny K's for the layout, and used one of the new digis as well.  I felt pretty guilty about having cut into fresh sheets of 12x12 paper, so I decided to use more of it on this card!  Maybe I'm not such a rebel after all! ;)  The matting paper and snowflakes are all from the same paper I used to mat yesterdays card, this is just the other side of the paper.  I cut the silver circles using my Nesties to layer under the snowflakes, because they seemed to get lost in the busy pattern of the paper. 

I used my Prismas and OMS to color her in, and there are a few tiny touches of a silver pen on her belt, earring, the ribbon on the mistletoe, and parts of the gift bags.  I think I might go back and add some flocking to her coat and boots, and maybe make some sparkle flocking for her hat!

Thanks for looking!
