INDEPENDENCE DAY GIFTCARDHOLDER FOR MY GIRLS WHO AREN'T SO INDEPENDENT

I thought I'd send my two girls some money or a gift card for July 4th.  I made the giftcard holder using My Creative Times die.  The paper I used is from Bo Bunny, it isn;t double sided so I added a layer of Kraft paper.  The Ribbon is from 3 Girl Jam.  I used gems from my stash.  The cute banner border is K & Company.  I use A Childs year for the image and Storybook for the frames

Papillon French for Butterfly

We had so much going on on Fathers day that we celebrated it with my dad a week later.  Which turned out great because my 2 girls were visiting from Southern California.  It was great to have them home.  A little chaotic, my daughter bought her two little dogs.
My dad likes a nearby french restaurant called "Papillon".  The challenge was to make a masculine gift card holder with a butterfly on it.  I made the gift card holder using a die from My Creative Time The sentiment is also MCT.  I used a Spellbinder Die for the butterfly.
I found this paper pad by DCWV on clearance at JoAnns
