Doggy Giftcard Holder

I have another 'doggy' themed item to share today...this is a little giftcard holder for my Dad's birthday later this week. I (sort of) followed this tutorial, but altered the dimensions a little to use half a sheet of A4 card, and make a slightly larger area for my image. I stamped little paw prints over both sides of my piece of kraft card using a Hobbycraft background stamp and Versamark ink before measuring and scoring the folds. On the outside, I added a dog image (from the 'Man's Best Friend' set by Penny Black) coloured using watercolour pencils, and a Hero Arts sentiment (from the 'Fabulous Birthday' set).

On the inside, I used scissors to cut a slit wide enough for the giftcard to slide in, then one of my circle Nesties to cut a little notch. I stuck it all together with some thin doublesided tape, then punched a couple of holes in the front and back, and tied it all together using some  Baker's twine.

Challenges for this giftcard holder:
