Pop up Thank You and Gift Card Holders (#10)

Good morning friends!

Wow - yesterday was a busy day, starting with a conference with all the department heads at the Care Center where my Dad is. It was a really good meeting, and we were so happy to hear how well he is doing there (despite what he tell us). They gave us good tips on handling his increasing wishes to come home for a few days etc etc. We are so lucky that he is in a facility with such good care and even better management team!

In the afternoon was our newest Grandson's Brit Milah. It was a nice ceremony (except for the wailing baby getting circumcised - but it was over quickly). The Rabbi made a point of explaining the traditions of the ceremony to Gregg and I which made it even more meaningful. He has been given his name ... Ilai (Eli). Works in both Hebrew and English, so his non Jewish family won't have trouble pronouncing it. Ha - spelling it is another matter!

Today's post is scheduled, as things are about to get crazy around here. The moving truck arrives bright and early tomorrow morning, and will load up all our belongings. It will be a two day move, with the truck delivering our stuff the next day. The next time we move, I'm hoping the only things we take with us are our clothes and my craft supplies. Ha!

This is the final card I made for our neighbour, who ordered 10 'Thank You Gift Card Holder' cards for his office. He wanted them to be Pop Ups and he asked that the Gift Card Holders be attached inside the cards as well.

I used the Pop n Cuts base for the card fronts, and fun papers from my stash ...

This card actually uses the Sassy Label Pop 'n Cuts insert, layered with a Katie Label and the stamped Thank You. The Gift Card Holder was cut from white card stock and attached to the card base with the adhesive avoiding the corners so the gift card can be slid in easily.

He was really happy with his cards!
