Nutty Gift Card Holder CCMC 332

We really have a change-up in store for you today!!  Instead of a color combo or a sketch, Create with Connie and Mary has a fun challenge to make a gift card holder, and who doesn't need these at this time of year!  Here's what I came up with:

I used the Fry Box Die as the basis for my box, however I changed it up a bit.  I cut two box backs with bottom sections and glued the bottoms together to make my box (however, I didn't glue the box sides together yet at this point)..  This gave me a front and back the same height and fit the nutcracker image better, as well as holding more loot!  : ).

Partial side view.
I cut a piece of DSP to layer on the outside front panel under the nutcracker and also cut another box back (without the base) from a different but coordinating DSP.  The DSP flaps were trimmed down to 1/4" beyond the score line then this piece  was adhered to the inside back of the box before the box was assembled.   This made a pocket for my gift card!

Do you see the pocket and gift card in the above picture?

You can see it better here:  the striped DSP forms the pocket for the gift card on the back panel.  I used the Large Oval Punch to make it easier to withdraw the card.  That's it!  Fill a Cellophane Bag with treats, tie with a bow and you're ready to go!

Stamps:  Santa Stache set
Inks: Tuxedo Black Memento Ink, Cherry Cobbler Ink Pad; Blendabilities:  Skin Tone Assortment, Cherry Cobbler, Daffodil Delight.
Paper:  Trim the Tree DSP Stack; Cherry Cobbler, Whisper White Cardstocks
Accessories:  Mustache Framelit, Fry Box Die, Large Oval Punch, Paper Snips, Mono Multi Liquid Glue, Glue Dots.

Here's this week's fun challenge again:
