Mum's Day Gift Card Holder

Mum's day is coming up in May....have you shopped for her yet? Me either. Sorry Mom. But I did make this gift card holder from a Bazzill library pocket. So I have a head start anyway!

These holders are SO easy to make. All I did was use a pre-made pink Bazzill library pocket, and added crackled faux-wood paper from the Crafty Secrets "Radiant" paper pad. I added ribbon and a darker pink cardstock, and then used the seed packet image from the "Seasonal" booklet from Crafty Secrets. "Mom" is stamped with the "Artsy Alphabet" from Clearartstamps.

I also added some pink sparkle glitter to the edge of the image, to make it shimmer (the photo isn't great, but it's there!)

The gift card holder inside is just a piece of yellow cardstock. I used the Stampin Up slit punch to punch slits for the gift card part. May Arts ribbon is from Starlitstudio's store.

Just make sure to mount the seed packet image higher up on the front of the pocket, so that it hides the ugly gift card inside!

Oh and one more thing! The white flowers are colored in with a Sakura gelly roll clear glitter pen.
