Pretty Packages Class - part four!

Number Four!

Number Four is really a card but it is a package, too! It's gift card holder. And it's a modification of one that the multi-talented, always jovial, extremely sweet JulieHRR did a while back (see her blog eye candy!). I bought this Holiday Shopper gal a long time ago and just finally inked her up. Some how she makes me smile! It's just fun to see all of those packages! Right, packages... pretty packages, in fact. So, this is a gift card holder. Open it up and there is a gift card inside. Funny story... this class was in Salado, Texas (an hour away from Austin). Salado is a SMALL, quaint town with lots of antique stores and such but no big stores or chain restaurants (and NO Starbucks!). It's a very charming place. Anyway, I, of course, forgot an actual gift card at home that day to show in the card. So, every time I go to Salado, I swing by the Sonic there and get a Vanilla Diet Coke (YUM!) Well, this day I bought a $5 gift card, too so that I could demonstrate this card. So, um, bonus (!) now I have a gift card to Sonic! ;) ... mmmm....

All cardstock and images: A Muse
Accessories: black twine, hole punch, red tissue paper, liquid applique, heat gun
