Grad gift card holder

The past few days I have had to make sure the challenges I enter have criteria that work for cards I must have - so many cards needed, so little time!  I had meant to omit the last Verve challenge - then when I took a look at it I realized I could use the sketch to create a gift card holder - this is the result.  I folded double sided paper and trimmed to form a side opening envelope (this is 4.25x5.5, so it holds the original cardboard holder as well as the gift card.)  Then I added the DP, some die cuts (Lifestyle Crafts), and one of those really shiny stars!  A while ago I bought several library style stamps (American Crafts), and I finally remembered to use the one with the date!  The phrase is one of several selections as part of the same stamp.
