Easy Gift Card Holders

I'm always looking for "easy" ideas especially at this time of year.  I had a pack of the Snow Festival Designer Printed Tags on hand, and wanting to use what I have, I created gift card holders.  I love that the tags are doublesided.  One side has a blank space where you can stamp or write a greeting, but the back side is a pretty pattern.  The tags are a really nice shape, and they make a nice layer.

This is actually note card size...5x3-1/2 inches.  The inside looks like this:

 
 
The "holder" is just a piece of cardstock accented with DSP.  It's adhered to the card with Sticky Strip on the two sides and the bottom.  It makes a tight enough fit that the gift card won't fall out.  Because my handwriting is horrible, I printed the greeting from MDS2 and used the Bitty Banners Framelits to cut them out.
 
Below are a couple more samples (sorry for the bad photos).  They really look so much nicer in person because our glimmer paper is so sparkly.
