Gift Card Holder for Nine Four*

Saturday, November 20, 2010

I'm not sure if I'm late to the party, but I have just discovered that an iTunes gift card is no longer the size of a "normal" gift card.  I bought one today at Walmart and instead of it being the customary 2 1/8" x 3 3/8" it was a whopping 3 3/8" x 5 1/4".  So all of my usual gift card holder templates are suddenly rendered irrelevant.

So off to the drawing board I go.  I wanted to use the sketch from Stamping 411, which was a nice, clean, and simple one.  Using that layaout, I created a holder that is 6 1/4" x 4 3/8".  It sort of looks like an envelope and is actually a little bigger than it needs to be, but I'm pretty happy with the result.  The gift card fits very comfortably inside.

For my gift card holder, I went into the vault and used some of my Holiday Lounge designer paper with some Taken With Teal cardstock (which I saved so that I could use it with the dp).

Since I used ribbon on this, it also qualifies for the Pals Paper Arts challenge. 
Thanks for stopping by and I hope you have time to stamp today!
