For this challenge I chose to make a card with a dual purpose. It is a Christmas card and gift card or money holder at the same time. I started with white cardstock, punched out a snowflake in the front and put a scrap of light blue behind that. Then out of my Christmas/winter stash, I found a blue to match. Cut a square just a little bigger than a gift card and rounded the corners. I used a thin white string and stitched around the outer edge. I then glued the very outside of 3 sides, leaving the top open to stick money or a gift card inside. I used my large snowflake punch and cut out a black one for a bit of contrast. Then used a Christmas stamp and scrap of darker blue paper.
I have entered this in the Crafting by Design June Christmas challenge.
