Birthday Gift card: Cocoa Style!

Hi there!

This morning, I'm sharing a card that doubles as a gift card holder that I designed for Sweet 'n Sassy's Birthday blog hop event!  I used Cookies Gift for my focal image and after coloring her, I cut her out to embellish the gift card pocket (an older die from Sizzix).  As you can see from the next photo - it fits a gift card perfectly.  I attached the card to a shipping tag (with temporary adhesive to make it easy to remove) and tied a silk ribbon bow to embellish it.

Here's a closer view of sweet Cookie - as you can see I used just a few copics to color her and them embellished her gift with some stickles and a button.

Card Details
Stamps: Cookie's Gift (Digital image by Sweet 'n Sassy); Sentiments from Bethany's Birthday Wish
Card stock: SU; PTI white; GinaK Designs
Other: Sizzix envelope die; Cuttlebug embossing folders; EK Success border punch; sewing machine; copics; stickles; button; Spellbinder petite oval die; corner rounder; silk ribbon; twine

Here's the inside view - the same image, I just flipped Cookie to face the other direction.  The sentiments on the outside and inside are all from Bethany's Birthday Wish clear stamp set.

Isn't Cookie adorable peeking out behind that gift?

Now, for the fun part - check out these great cards in the links below and be sure to create your card to join us in the hop!  All the details on the hop as well as the grab the link list code are found right HERE, so check that out too.
