3D Gift Card Box - Bloggers Challenge

Happy Bloggers Challenge Friday!  Thanks so much to those who played along with last weeks Color My World Challenge, I always love to see what other crafters favorite colors are! This weeks challenge is Anything But a Card, I'm looking forward to seeing your creations!

I'll be giving quite a few gift cards to the older nieces and nephews this year for Christmas, and found the perfect way to give them this year!  I used the 3D Gift Card Box directions from the Technique Junkie Newsletter 3D and Fancy Folds CD (ordering information below) to create my beautiful gift box holder!
I did add an additional layer of card stock under my pattern paper, but other than that, I followed the directions on the CD.  The beautiful papers are from the Bo Bunny Snowfall Collection.  To embellish the outside of the box, I added the cute little Reindeer cut from scraps of the Bo Bunny paper, adding dyed seam binding left over from yesterday's tag, some Gold Tulle and a Rosette also cut from the Snowfall Paper.  The Rosette is a sneak peek of a new template coming soon to Creations by AR!

On the Gift Card panel, I stamped the house from Our Daily Bread Designs Christmas Door set in Caramel, then added the sentiment from this same set in Ranger Iced Spruce Distress Ink.  The sentiment on the outside of the box is from ODBD Ornaments 2 set.
