That's How Thursday & Unity Hop!!

It's Hip Hop Thursday!  If you need to start the hop from the beginning, just click right here, and you will be on your way!! 

Today, I am sharing one of the two cards I showed you on my blog today!! Using a shipping tag as part of my card decoration, I thought why not take that tag, adhere it, and make it a place to secure a GIFT CARD!! 

So, here's the gift card holder card and isn't the
 {ippity} HAPPY BIRTHDAY sentiment  just the sweetest font style!!

Here are some quick steps to making your own GIFT CARD HOLDER card:

1. Cut the card base 4.75" x 4.75". Using white chalk ink, ink all sides of your card base. 
2. Cut the light blue paper to 4.5" x 4.5".  Cut the light pink paper to 3.5" x 3.5". Machine stitching is optional.  Adhere your border punch to the light pink paper.
3. Adhere the light blue paper to the card base.  
4. Using a shipping tag, cut down so it fits behind the light pink designer paper.  Take your adhesive runner and glue the sides and bottom portion of your shipping tag to the back of the light pink designer paper. Adhere the pink paper/shipping tag piece to the blue paper.  Here's when you will slide that gift card in between the shipping tag and pink paper!!!
5. Stamp your ippity sentiment onto the Spellbinder die cut. Adhere ribbon and tie bow, button, and pearl.  Add a little button and bling to the shipping tag bow tie as well!  That's it..ready to gift away!! 

And now for the HIPPITY HOP comment WINNER!!!
