For a sweet girl
This is a gift card holder I made for a young lady recently. She is the daughter of a friend and she helped me out by watching my two little ones at our Fantasy Football League draft a few weeks ago. (Yes, I like football, watch it, keep up with it, and I have an FFL team. We are three wives of other FFL team owners and we are called the Merry Widows - as in football widows and the lingerie.) She didn't have to do it but was such a big help during the draft, holding my little Clare and playing with her. Her parents said I didn't need to give her money for it, but I wanted to do something special just for her. I have never tried this particular method of gift card holder before and it was a bit tricky; I saw things that I would change for next time. But, it was a satisfactory card in the end. Here is a peek at the sliding part where the gift card was attached.
I am going to be adding some cards to the World Card Making Day website, under "SHARE", soon. I hope you will join in the fun by sharing some of your handmade cards, too!
