Made in Minutes w/MCT and a GIVEAWAY!

Good Morning and Welcome to
My Creative Time's~ Made In Minutes!
Where the MCT DT will be sharing quick and easy projects using MCT stamps and dies that you can recreate in no time.
For my project today I made a gift card holder for a Starbucks card that I would like to send to one of my followers :) All of the details will be listed below but first lets take a look at my project....
I think on of my favorite dies from Miss Emma is her Embossed Gift Card Holder. They can be decorated as fancy or as simple as you like and hold a gift card inside perfectly!
For mine, I used the Layering Coffee Dies and popped them up onto the front of my gift card holder. A simple wrap and bow of some Totally Natural Trendy Twine and this gift card holder is ready to go.

Here is how nice the inside holds a Gift Card!
And I was able to put this whole project together in less than 20 minutes!

Supplies Used:
Paper~ Kraft, White, My Minds Eye~Cut and Paste
Stamps~My Creative Time~Coffee Break
My Creative Time~Chunky Jar Accessories
My Creative Time~Once Upon a Time (tiny heart)
My Creative Time~Fun Gift Pocket Sentiments
Dies~My Creative Time~Embossed Gift Card Holder
My Creative Time~Layering Coffee Dies (Coffee Break)
Embellishments~ Trendy Twine~ Totally Natural

So what do you think of my gift card holder???
