Pixie Dust Studio Challenge

I don't know about you but I love, love, love receiving gift cards! A few may feel they are so impersonal however in completely removes that uncomfortable moment of  "What is this and how could they have possibly believed I needed it?"  or "Oh crap, they're looking at me, just smile & perhaps they won't notice your disappointment!" Perhaps I am just shallow, ok I am! My love of gifts cards will come handy this week, The Pixie Dust Studio Challenge is to Create A Gift Card Holder.

I used Kathy's adorable Santa's Surprise and recycled a pillow box that once contained ribbon. Running the container through my Cuttlebug using the snowflake embossing folder, added some interest.  I then added a clear snowflake that I have had  for quite some time & a few dewdrops. Do you recognize the tree? Yep it's from the Christmas Cheer cartridge.
So how will you package your gift cards this year? I cant wait to see! Beth aka BR-T
