Gift card holder using the envelope punch board

I just attended a meeting with some of my Stampin' Up! demonstrators today and we did a shoebox swap. It's when you prepare a card for everyone one to make and you spend some time making everyone's cards and go home with a whole selection of cards.  It was a day of stamping fun!!

Here is my card.  It's a gift card holder I CASE'd (=Copy And Shared) from Wendy Cranford.
Start with a 4-1/4" X 11 that has been scored at 2-1/2".
 Fold over on the score line, and place adhesive on both edges to form a pocket for the gift card.
 On the opposite end of the card, use the envelope punch board and punch at 1"
 Flip the paper over and punch at 1" again
 Tuck the center of the punched end into the pocket you created and gently fold over the cardstock.
 Use a bone folder to make a stronger crease.
 Emboss a 4"x 4" piece of Cord'nations with the Pretty Print Textured Impressions Embossing Folder, rub lightly with a sanding block, and then cut at 2'1/4".  Adhere to the top and bottom of the card.
 Place some Seasons of Style Designer Washi Tape on the edge of the bottom pocket.
Attach a bow made from the Crumb Cake seam binding with a glue dot and tuck the top part into the pocket.

What do you think?
Thanks for checking in!
