“Traveler Train” Gift Card holder

This gift card holder was made with the same stamp set as my previous card, called “Traveler“.  I used the train image for this one, and I stamped the World Map stamp in the background, very lightly. (Stamped on a piece of scrap paper first and then on my card.) I sponged Soft Sky blue ink and Smoky Slate ink to add a little dimension to the image.

To make this gift card holder, I used the Envelop punch board and cut the 2 notches. (see below for the instructions). To secure the bottom part, I used the Epic Day Washi tape, which matched my card perfectly! I found it looks a bit like the railorad tracks, don’t you?
