Birthday Card and Sliding Gift Card Holder

Good morning friends

It's Flip-It Friday here on my blog, and today's share is the birthday card I made for our son-in-law.

I used the 5 x 7 Circle Flip-Its for the card base, and the patterned paper has glossy and foiled bits on it. Perfect for a birthday celebration!

For this one we actually signed our names with a white gel pen on the blue centre strip, rather than writing on the back or adding a label to write on.

I'm pretty excited about this Gift Card Holder too. I had mentioned before having a wish list from Sizzix designer Lynda Kanase and this BigZ die was on that list. I finally purchased it last week!

On the front I added that fun Happy Birthday die from Karen Burniston's newest release. It fit perfectly! I also added a panel of the same embossed orange patterned paper that was on the birthday card.

You tuck a gift card in the slot, and it slides out/forward as the Gift Card Holder opens. So cool! I wasn't sending him a gift card though, and since it was going through the mail I didn't want to send cash either. The US dollar bill is just for the photos. We don't have one dollar bills in Canada, we have the gold coin called a 'Loonie'. For this card I wrote a cheque and folded it to fit in the slot - worked like a charm!

 I added scallops from Karen Burniston's Cake Pop-Up - the scalloped 'icing' dies are very handy!

I really am tickled with the way this gift card holder works and I know I will get a lot of use out of it. I like it when everything coordinates, too - so this bright birthday set makes me happy.
