Gift Card Holder ~ MCT 85th Edition Release and Blog Hop

Hi, Gaylynn here.  It is the MCT 85th Edition release, sale and blog hop.
You may have arrived from Emily's blog.

Sentiment:  Sending a little Christmas magic your way.

For this card, I combined a holiday greeting card with a gift card holder.  This is a fun way to present a gift and greeting in one.  I included a sentiment tab and a Santa.  The Santa was stamped onto kraft color paper and then colored pencils were used to color him in.
The gift card holder is adhered to the card front.  But the holder opens to display the actual gift card.
