Birthday Gift Card Holder with CTMH Dakota

Sharing a gift card holder I created a few weeks ago as one of the make & take projects for my recent Open House.   It was such a hit at the Open House that I used it again at my All-Day Crop at the end of September for my make & take project that day!

This project is super easy to make - - the gift card holder base is cut with the CTMH Artiste Cricut cartridge!   Simply fold together, and adhere in the middle & voila - your card is ready to decorate!   
-  I added stars (also cut in various sizes using the Artiste cartridge) which were ink distressed with black ink to help them stand out a little more.   
-  The paper collection is CTMH Dakota - great for masculine projects such as this one!   
-  I stamped the sentiment and the star on the inside of the card using the "Casual Expressions" stamp set.   The oval where I stamped the birthday sentiment is cut using the Artiste cartridge as well and also fits a great thank you sentiment from the same "Casual Expressions" stamp set, if you are in need of a thank you card (instead of a birthday card).    I also popped up the sentiment with some foam tape but stayed away from adding any dimensional embellishments as i wanted to keep this card easy to mail.  

Thanks for stopping in today!  To all my Canadian friends -- hope you had a very Happy Thanksgiving weekend!  I enjoyed some time with family and a whole lot of delicious food!
