Theme Thursday at My Cricut Craft Room

Today's theme is Garden or Flowers. Since I needed a gift card holder, I decided to use the pretty Poinsettia from the new Paper Trimmings cartridge. I designed this gift card holder using my Gypsy. It was so easy. I just took two rectangles from George and a border from Elegant Edges, welded the pieces together and then took a letter C from a cartridge for the notch at the top. I also found a straight cut shape to make the slash marks to hold the card in place. The flower on the front of the holder was cut at 2 inches. I also made two of the top layer and then I embossed it with my Swiss Dots folder and pop dotted it to the flower base. I added a personal note inside the card holder too before mailing it.
