Color Throw Down #472

Hello friends.  Playing along with the Color Throw Down challenge where it's all about red, black, & gray this week.

And here's what I came up with using those colors:

I used the polar bear from MFT's Polar Bear Pals set and some DSP from SU!'s Merry Little Christmas to create this gift card holder.  (Card base is 4 1/4 x 11 and scored at 2, 7 1/4, & 7 3/8, and then the insert is 6 1/2 x 3 3/4 and scored at 1 3/4 & 6)  Here's the inside:

And how cool was it that I had a gift card with the colors of this challenge on it to use for my photo?!!  The sentiment on the inside insert is from PTI's Think Big Favorites #20.  This is a fun little gift card holder that's fun to watch the insert slide up and down as you open and close the card...somewhat interactive!!  :0)  And if I would have paid attention to the directions and used a ribbon around the bottom fold instead of gluing it shut with tear n tape, you could actually close the top flap of the card with the tabs made by using the envelope punch board!  Oh well, live and learn!!  If you want to watch the video of how to make this gift card holder, you can check it out right HERE.

There's still a few days left to play along with this challenge, so check out the inspiration from the DT and then play along right HERE.
