Christmas Pop-Up Gift Card Holder

Here's one of my great finds which I'm sharing with my fellow crafty peeps! We all have those hard to buy for family members/friends and I found this really cute gift card holder and thought I'd share my take on it with you! 

Okay, I struggle with primary colors!  I rely heavily on my "browns" when I create cards and to be honest I purchased the CTMH Believe papers as a "challenge" for my personal growth!   I have this great CTMH Share the Magic stamp set.  I've never used it - again out of my comfort range!  Whimsikle, fun stamp set - and I'm such a traditional old fashioned kinda gal!   Between the stamp set and the Believe paper pack I was overwhelmed!   Completely had a designers block!  Could not see past the "red" - I'm also not a red kinda girl.  Tones of red - yes, plain red - no!  I started on Friday afternoon, put it down made a whole other card, tried again on Saturday and finished finally late Sunday night. 

Here's the final product:

I actually had to break this card down into segments.   Starting with the Santa on Saturday morning - Using Copic Markers I made up many of these Santa's.  On the "highlights" I added CTMH Glitz Sparkle Gel, just to accentuate it that much more. 

Here's the great part about this card and it's functionality!  When it opens up. . . your gift card magically lifts up and it's nicely displayed  in a little sleeve!  There's no way your happy recipient will miss the presention of your gift card!  :)
