"Pink" birthday gift cards

My friend at work asked me for gift cards to give to 2 of her daughters who are travelling soon to a "Pink" concert and shopping trip for their birthdays. Naturally, I had to use pink so I chose two firm favourites - Raspberry Ripple and Primrose Petals to partner with the Modern Medley DSP. I was able to use some scrapbooking letters I had in the "useful box" and some long retired "Hodgepodge Hardware" for the decoration on the front.
Stamp sets include Curly Cute, Hodgepodge Happiness, Flower Shop and Vintage Verses.
I experimented with the gift pocket for the cash and was happy with the closures. I used 2 small sizes of circle punch as well as the artisan label punch. On the front I secured the circles in place with a mini brad. This gave an anchor for the thread to wind around, and on the inside i glued a second circle over the opened brad arms so that the notes wouldn't catch on them. Hope that is clear!?
I also used the Window Frames Framelits and The Chalk Talk Framelits for the nametags.
Anyway, My friend loved them so I hope her daughters are as happy. cheers, Liz
