STampin' Up! Delightful Decorations Gift Card Holder

I joined a gift card swap this month and had a ball making three different ones.  This is the first one I made.  It uses the Delightful Decorations stamp set.
Delightful Decorations Stamp Set (Item #116517 wood, 127787, clear)
Cherry Cobbler Card Stock (Item #119685)
Whisper White Card Stock (Item #100730)
DSP from the Be of Good Cheer pack (Item #126896)
Gumball Green Ink Pad(Item #126861)
Rhinestone (Item #119246)
Sticky Strip (Item #104294)

Cut Cardstock:
Cherry Cobbler
       1 X 7
       2 3/4 X 2 1/4
      11 X 4 1/4
Whisper White
       2 X 2 1/2
       4 X 2 3/4
      4 X 2 3/4

Score the 11 X 4 1/4 piece of Cherry Cobbler Card Stock at 3, 6, and 8 3/4 inches.  Cut the short (4 1/4") side (closest to the 8 3/4" mark) diagonally from about 1 1/2" from the bottom, up to the top of the score mark.  Apply sticky tape to the bottom of this one flap on the bottom and up the 1.5 inch side.  Fold and adhere to the center right section (between the 6 and 8 3/4 score marks.  This forms a pocket for the gift card.
Attach the 4 X 2 3/4 Whisper White Card Stock to the (now) center section, next to the gift card holder.  Stamp or sign with your greeting/message.
Fold the card.  Glue the DSP on the front of the card.
Stamp one of the Delightful Decorations stamps using Gumball Green ink, onto the 2 X 2 1/2 Whisper White piece of card stock.  Put a Rhinestone or other embellishment on the ornament.
Attach this to the 2 3/4 X 2 1/4 Cherry Cobbler mat.
Wrap the 1 X 7 Cherry Cobbler piece around the gift card and attach the ends with glue.  This should be able to slip on and off of the card.  Attach the ornament piece to the seam (to hide the seam) of the band.
I used the Jolly Bingo Bits (Item #120857 wood, 121187 clear) and a 1" circle punch (Item #119868) to decorate the inside as well as the More Merry Messages stamp set (Item # 126400 wood, 126402 clear) to stamp the message.
This is the quickest, easiest of the card holders I made for this swap.Using different DSP and colors of paper and ink can really give it a different look, too!
