More Gift Card Holders

I thought up some fun shapes for gift cards. Can you tell that I only have a Blockbusters card right now? I tried to switch it up for the 'carrot' card by showing the back. I thought that one would be perfect for a nursery or Home Depot gift card. The star holder really needs a Target gift card and the whale should have a Gymboree card, right? ;-) They were really fun to make. Hopefully, I will put some other sketches to work if I have time later. I will work on some templates for them too. I don't own a scanner so it might be tough for me to figure it out but I will surely try!
The carrot gift card is attached with a temporary adhesive. It easily comes off and on without permanently attaching it.
Carrot For You Recipe:
Stamps: flirty flowers
Ink: mellow moss, bravo burgundy
Paper: hey sugar dp, bravo burgundy
Accessories: SU! buttons (yep...I used them!!), embroidery thread, SU! ribbon

I used some hardware to keep the gift card in place on the star card.
Oh Happy Day Recipe:
Paper: Get Happy dp, PTI cardstock
Accessories: Get Happy rub-ons, Get Happy Ribbon, We R Memory Keepers hardware, paper piercer

I was hoping that the ribbon on the whale would look like water squirting out. Not sure if I pulled that off! ;-) I think I will have to work on the shape a bit too.....
Lil' Squirt Card:
Stamps: mix up of cuteness
Ink: memento
Paper: Storytime dp, PTI white, basic black by SU!
Accessories: Elementary rubons by Cosmo cricket, Me & My Big Ideas rhinestones, Michaels ribbon, janome sew mini, SU! circle punches, cutters kit, sanding block
