Gift Bear Holder

Hello all. First, I'd like to announce that I have made the Designed 2 Delight Design Team! Faith is the artist of these really lovely digistamps. I discovered her a little over a month ago and couldn't resist her "wholesome" style.
With the latest digi, I wanted to make a gift card holder. This was super easy and fast. The gift bear is paper pieced with all parts inked. I printed all the papers from Pink Petticoat.
Sewing zig-zag down the sides made it so that I didn't have to use adhesive. The length of the paper is 6". I scored at 1" and 3.5". I don't remember the exact width, but the card fits perfectly.
I plan to stamp the inside, lower right with the sentiment - when an occasion arrives. I like having little things on hand just in case...it's my "new view" instead of constantly making things last minute or *gasp* BUYING something!
So I hope you will follow me along with my new Team. I have included the info on my sidebar where you can find the rest of the super talented members' blogs.

Very sweet. I started this month's challenge and got the first one done then got behind and missed the deadline on the second. Waiting for July but hate that I missed this cutie.
