Shopping gift card holder

I am always looking for unique cards to hold gift cards.
So when I saw this stamp (it has been in my stash forever) I knew
I had to make a gift card holder.

Front.  Hard to tell but lots of dimension used tons of pop dots here.
Inside just had to add the optimism quote... Love being optimistic when I shop

I have used:
Close to My Heart card stock as well as designer paper (sorry really old not sure of the name)
Stamp CTMH Fashionista D1504
Optimism Quote by Lisa of Decosse's Dynamite Doodles you can find it here

  32. Hey Carmen,

    Cute gift card and you are right--shopping and optimism should go hand in hand. People are always looking for the perfect item at the perfect price and if they don't go in with an optimistic attitude, they'll never get it. Cool stamp and background paper and thanks so much for using one of my quotes. I'll add it to my gallery on my personal blog to show all my readers.

    Thank you so much for joining us again this month on the Path of Positivity. I hope that I will continue to see more of your beautiful creations in the future.

    May you always find the perfect deals when shopping yourself.
