Fun Fold Friday: Top Note Gift Card Holder

Hi Everyone!

So technically this is not a fun or fancy fold; but it is a little bit more than just a regular card. This cute little card opens up at the top note die cut to reveal a gift card. Please overlook the fact that I have an old Christmas gift card, it was the only one I could find so that I could show you the inside!
I had seen this idea on Pinterest; but had a hard time finding actual instructions for making the gift card holder part. I finally found this video from Dawn's Stamping Thoughts and thought it was the best at explaining how it is done.

 I used Aqua Mist and New Leaf for my main colors becuase they cooridinate the best with the strip of patterned paper tha I found in
my scraps. The layered paper flower in the center is from an old set of sizzix dies I have called, "Lots of Tags" I added a small silver sequin to the center as well.
I heat embossed the sentiment which is from Altenew on the bottom with versamark and white embossing powder.

Have a fabulous weekend and I will see you all again on Monday.
