Check out this fun fold!

Check out this fun fold!  It is a quarter fold card that I found & modified the measurements of, so that it is a gift card holder.  With graduation coming up we are all looking for cards to make that hold money or gift cards aren't we?  Well this is a fun fold to make & I think the recipient will love it too!

I created this card for an upcoming birthday- but it could be adapted for many different occasions.
Looks how I have the flaps fold inward & they cross each other.  Neat huh!!  And isn't the little balloon bouquet cool too!
Here is what the inside looks like.  Be sure to check out the gift card/money holder too!

Yesterday was a full day with the boys.  It was so nice out.  We are loving this spring weather & being able to play outside.  They got to play in the sand box, swing & ride their trikes.  

Last night we all went to Brayden's school music program, then picked up Casey's Pizza & had supper together in the new city park/playground.  The boys had fun playing.  And we then went to Walkers Drive Thru for ice cream!  I worked on catching up on emails & bookwork a little when we got home.

This morning I'm off early to pick up the boys for the day.  We have to make a quick run to Osky to the bank & our CPA's this morning.  Tonight when the boys leave I'm going to get my hair cut & I will then come home & burn the midnight oil cutting card stock.

I hope you have a TERRIFIC Tuesday!!
Happy Stamping!
