Echo Park Gift Card Holder

  I still have some of my "a walk in the PARK" Echo Park papers left...not much, but enough to make two of these gift card holders for my daughters' bus driver and her assistant.  We adore "Ms. Pam & Ms. Marie."  This is our third consecutive year with these two wonderful ladies (*fingers crossed* that we have them next year too!)  I had exactly two pieces of this yellow-orange ribbon in my scrap jar and exactly two "Thanks!" American Crafts rub-on sentiments on my work table.  I used the top note die by Stampin' Up! to cut my Echo Park double-sided papers, scored at 3", then taped with photo tape to create  pocket.  I zipped over to Starbucks for two gift cards...done!

Happy Thursday!
