Here is my project 

This is a fun new file just added to the Creative Kuts2 store.  The front of the card has a nice big oval tag with the word Joy attached to it with the letter "O" as a cute ornament with a place for you to add a ribbon to really dress up this card.  On the inside there is a little pocket to add the cute little gift card included or add any store gift card for a fantastic added gift.  on the inside I added a cute rub-on that says Merry Christmas.  You could stamp or decorate as you wish and there is plenty of room to place your signiture right under the gift card. 

You can purchase this fun Joy Gift Card Holder file today at:
