A couple challenge cards

Jen challenged us to make a gift card holder this week and I know you've seen something like this just last week from me....but I used a different nestie shape and different image ;)
The nesties shapes were cut using Tangerine and Frosty Days dp. The front and back are held together with the round tab punch and some sticky strip. A little bit of silver elastic cord will allow me to hang this on the tree :)

I love this little snowman from the Winter Bear set available either in rubber or a digi download at All That Scraps.

Inside of the gift card holder with a little pocket(design paper) to hold the gift card. That layer is popped up on dimensionals.
Yesterday on SCS the colour challenge Emily gave was scared me at first...anything with Taken With Teal...freaks me out...haha!
So I kept it to a minimum here....
I used this cute H & M Stamp set called Percy Builds Frosty.
Colour Challenge: Riding Hood Red, Taken with Teal, Baja Breeze
Stamps: Percy Builds Frosty; Cardstock: Riding Hood Red, Baja Breeze, Taken With Teal, WC paper; Inks: Versafine Black, Baja, Riding Hood Red, Taken with Teal, Pumpkin, Choc chip; Accessories: Aqua Painter, Baja and Riding Hood Red Ribbon, Circle punch, scalloped edge punch, 2 way glue pen and glitter, snowflake embossing folder, long curvy rectangle nesties, dimensionals

It does remind me of your other gift card holder...my first thought was - haven't I already seen this? But it's a cute and clever idea. The second card with the teal and the dark fuschia - I actually like those colors together.

What a fabulous idea for a gift card holder. The tab at the top is so clever. And the penguin, well he's cute just because he's a penguin but I love the double ribbon. Thanks for sharing!
