MCT 5 Days of Christmas Day 4

I've got another Christmas project for you on this fourth day of My Creative Time's 5 Days of Christmas!  I love giving out gift cards for the holidays, and MCT products can make the packaging so cute!  For this one, I used one of the Stitched Postage Frame Dies to make a little base that I could attach a pocket to, which I made with the Stitched Gift Card Pocket Die.  I then made a coffee cup with the cutest dies from We're Better Together!  For my sentiment, I found the perfect one in More Gift Card Sentiments.  Since it is one long stamp, I masked off one part at a time for it to fit onto the rectangle that I had die cut with one of the MORE Stitched Rectangular Dies.

Of course, I needed a cute envelope to put this gift card into, and the Scallop Stitched Envelop Die makes one the perfect size for this project!  Once I tuck it inside, I'll tie some twine around the brads to secure it.
