Gift Card Holder - Santa's Little Helper Edwin

I made this gift card holder for the upcoming holiday season.  I used some holiday Christmas paper from my stash and Santa's Little Helper stamp - I think he's so cute!  You can find the gift card tutorial I used for this project here.  I also used a small magnetic disc from Basic Grey to keep the gift card holder closed.  Sorry the pictures aren't that great - the first one is with the flash, but I had to turn the flash off to get any close-ups.  Hope you can see it well enough!

Here's a picture a little more close-up.  I used Copics to color in Santa's Little Helper Edwin:
Hat, Jacket, Pants: R39
Boots, Belt, Glove: Special Black 110, W3
Buckles - Y08
Face - E00, E11
Hair - E57, E33, E11
I also used Diamond Stickles for his hat, cuff links, pant cuffs and liner of the jacket.

Here's the inside of the gift card holder.  I love how the gift card pops up!  (Yeah, I know this is just my AC Moore rewards card in the picture, but it'll be a gift card before long!)  Sorry the picture looks a little blurry!

And here's one more picture of it from up top, looking down on the gift card holder.  I used a Merry Christmas stamp by Stampabilities and stamped it in Lady Bug Memento Ink.  I then inked the edges with a sponge dauber and the same Lady Bug Memento Ink.  I hope you like it!
