Weekly DT Challenge--Cards that hold Gift cards

My calendar seems to be filled with birthdays, teacher gifts, and graduations, so my challenge this week is to create a set of 4 cards that hold a gift card or folded money. This can be in the form of a pocket, a strip of paper to tuck the card under, or a tag. Some ideas to attach your card holder would be glue, staples, sewing, brads, etc. Use your imagination! Just make sure you only put adhesive on three sides when you attach your card holder so you can slip the card in! The cards don't have to all match and the greeting on your card can cover any theme as long as you can slip a gift card or folded money in the front of the card.

Here are my samples for this challenge...

I used a black pattern paper and stapled it on to create the pocket for the gift card...

This card uses a tabbed journaling tag that I scored and created a pocket with. The tag doesn't have to be scored completely in half...as long as you have enough room for a flap to glue down and enough room for your gift card, that's all you need.

This card used a journaling spot die cut that had a travel theme. I cut off the part that had the travel wording, then covered up the travel title with my sentiment. The right side of this die cut is open to slip the card in.

This card uses a pre-printed tag that had a travel theme, and I just covered up the travel theme and added my sentiment.
I'm looking forward to seeing your creations!

Guest Design team member for May

 We welcome Rebecca Kvenholden as our May GDT.  Here is her bio in her own words.

Hi! my name is Rebecca Kvenvolden. I'm a homemaker, a wife and
homeschooling mother and an artist. I scrap for several reasons. Namely, i
love to create a legacy for my family. I don't want there to be any
question in my childrens' minds about how much I love them. I want them
to have scrapbooks as my gift to them to savor. I also am very much a
creative person and have a great need to create. So i scrap a LOT,
about 6-10 layouts a week, more on crop weekends. Its also my mommy time,
which in a family with 7 children, is SACRED :-)  i'm 34
years old. I live in WA state. My other hobbies are reading (usually ABOUT scrapping)  and i enjoy
creative writing, drawing, painting, singing and drama, though mostly i
just scrap! my style is eclectic.. sort of like a mitigated freestyle
if that makes any sense, I typically use a lot of photos in a creative
way, but i also enjoy using one, two, or 3 photos. I enjoy a challenge
and am working hard to learn new techniques and develop my skills as a
paper artist.   I heard about Memorable Seasons over and over again from Cheryl W.
on Willow traders, but finally came on over and was HOOKED by Jill's
 fantastic customer service, great products and of course FANTASTIC prices!
