Welcome to day FOUR of MFT Teasers!  Today, we're showing a little sneak of Gift Card Greetings.

I started by cutting out some School Daze 6x6 paper with the Gift Card Pocket - Vertical Die-namics.  Once I made the pocket, I cut out more patterned paper with some Fishtail Flags Layers STAX Die-namics and stamped the sentiment on the yellow flag with the new Wild Cherry Ink, which I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE!  I added some Simply Scallops Small Die-namics along the side of the card and then added lots of stitching.  Of course, I had to use a fun Wild Cherry Button and Hemp Cord to accent my card.  The layout is Jen Shults' DS77.

Here is a shot of the card with the gift card taken out of the Gift Card Pocket. 

Love the finished inside of the pocket - it's so nice and polished looking.

I also decorated the inside of my card with more School Daze paper and another sentiment from the set:

Again, I stamped it in Wild Cherry Ink - look at that coverage - GASP!  Seriously wonderful.

Be sure to stop by the MFT Blog for a complete list of all designers playing along in tonight's Teaser.
