Lots of Gift Card Holders!

My son has had the best teachers this year, and I wanted to give each of them something to show our appreciation.  I pulled out the My Creative Time Embossed Gift Card Holder Die and got busy.  For the sentiment going across the top of each one, I used MCT's More Gift Card Sentiments.

For the first three cards, I used Papertrey Ink's Flipping Out to make my cute flip-flops.  The "Enjoy your vacation!" sentiment is also from this set.  The woodgrain and yellow heart paper are from Simple Stories I {HEART} SUMMER and the yellow polka dots is Bo Bunny.

Since I was using a brown grid background paper from Echo Park for this one, I stamped my sentiment on a banner made with a die from MCT's Just Simply Live.  The pretty aqua polka dot paper is from PTI's Library Ledger.

This one was inspired by the card I posted yesterday.  How easy to cut a strip of Simple Stories paper and pop on a coordinating layered sticker?

And lastly, for the two male teachers, I used the same elements that I used for my brother's birthday tag earlier this week:  PTI's Seeing Stars die and stamps from Pedal Pushers, Super Stars, and Grunge Me.  I accidentally stamped the "Thank You" to high, but adding a curved stitched line from MCT's Gift Card Sentiments evened it out and created a fun look!

Inside each one is a Peet's gift card.  I have to say, I think I use my Embossed Gift Card Holder Die more than any other die that I own!  So easy!!!
