Pop-up Gift Card Holder

This month's Christmas Cards All Year Round challenge is 'Anything but a Card' and I've made a pop-up gift card holder using Debs' tutorial as a guide for the sizes.

I'm entering Season's Greetings 'Colour' challenge, Penny's Paper-Crafty Challenge 'Anything Goes', Crafty Hazelnut's Christmas Challenge 'Anything Goes' and Crafty Hazelnut's Christmas Challenge Extra.  All the paper was from my snippets drawer so I'm heading to the playground at Pixie's Crafty Workshop.

Dies: Memory Box ' Ringed Buckle'
Punch: Woodware corner rounder
Card: Red double sided pearlescent
Snippets: Wild Rose Studio 'Painted Poinsettias'

I cut a piece of red card to measure 10" x 4.25" and scored it at 3", 4", 5" and 8".  I then trimmed snippets of holly paper for the inside - two pieces measuring 4" x 2.75" and one measuring 4" x 1.75" and poinsettia paper for the outside to the same measurements.   I rounded the corners of both the card and paper and attached the paper to the card.  I used a craft knife to cut a slit where the gift card will sit and then used double sided tape to attach the sides.  A strip of striped paper was then attached across this section of the gift card holder.  To make the belly band, I die cut a Ringed Buckle from red card and threaded a strip of holly paper through the buckle, This was wrapped around the gift card holder and fastened at the rear with double sided tape.
