Gift-card holder

My 1st gift-card holder, inspired by Erika's tutorial ( Yes, I still don't know how to put links under a cut, sorry!!!......

The only think I knew when I started was that I wanted to use this dark blue paper (blue is my favorite color and the baby is a boy) and the sweet pea stamp (huh, I don't have any other baby stamp actually, but this one is so darn cute anyway!...).
Instead of an enveloppe I wanted to use the same paper inside that I had used under the pea, of course I didn't cut it right (twice, LOL!!) so I ended up with a pocket much shorter than planned but it still works OK.
I wish I had had double-sided paper, it would have been perfect, but of course I didn't have any!....I used a little bit of the same paper to make a little card that I will slide in there with the gift card after adding a few words.
Mazel Tov means "congratulations" in hebrew.
The top of the card slide behind the pea picture and that's what holds it into place. I mounted my pea and leave on pop-a-dots, and also the pea frame (the green one).
It took me forever because it was the 1st time I made this (and because I screwed up with cutting the paper) but I'm sure it will be much faster next time ;-)
I wanted something very simple and not overdone and I must admit I am quite pleased with the result...but I am partial to that cute stamp anyway!... :-)
