I guess you could say that I am definitely on a gift card holder kick.  Remember the days when you had to actually go to THE place of business to get a gift card??  What a pain.  Now it is so very easy to just pop into your local grocery store and peruse the wide array of gift cards.  Love it!
The base of my card holder uses the Card Base Pop ‘n Cuts Big Shot die.  You use a 4 1/4″ x 11″ piece of cardstock.  It does not come scored as the picture below suggests but it does have the notched edges at the top and at the opposite end, little slits for those notched edges so that it will stay closed.  
I scored mine at 1″, 3″ and 7 1/2″.  It is a little easier to see what I did on this Very Vanilla one.  The one inch score line becomes a flap and the other becomes your pocket!
The inspiration for folding the base of my card came from Catherine Harwood and the embelishment idea came right from the big catalog on page 9.  I originally did not order the stamp set Cycle Celebration but as it always works, I saw it on a card and fell in love with it.
