Three versions of a gift card holder

The top card in the photo is a card that we made at Regional. It's made from a 4 X 12 piece of cardstock. You score it at 4" and 8" then make a diagonal score on the center panel from the top left corner to the bottom right corner. This forms a diagonal pocket inside the card that is perfect for holding a gift card.
Since the special this month is for chipboard, I created 2 other versions of the same card using chipboard for the focal image. The four-leaf clover is formed from 4 hearts. The heart and the star are both from the On Board Simon Upper set, and the rub-on that's on the star is from the Anchored rub-ons.
The white circles are a stamp from So Much, the set we got at Regional. Stamp it with white StazOn, use the paper piercer, and you've got faux-stitched circles!
Happy stamping!
