Dynanic Duos #84: "Black Tie" week

Hello, and happy Saturday!!! It's time for another fun color challenge at Dynamic Duos! It's Black Tie week and we are looking for crafty creations using Cherry Cobbler and  Black.  And to make it more festive, the dessert option is to add some "sparkle".  Here's the challenge:

And here's what I made. It was such a fun project to make! This gift card holder was inspired by Julie Davidson.  You can see her project HERE  (I did change the size of mine to make it a little bit bigger).

A close up of jolly Santa....:)
And here is what it looks like when you open the gift box.  I also made a matching envelope. :)
I cut a Velcro closure in 1/2 and used it to keep it closed. If you haven't made one of these gift card need to!  Very fun to make! ")
