Sparkly Country Landscape Voucher Holder Card

As part of Owen's Christmas gift I printed off an Amazon gift voucher for him.   I wanted to make a card to put the voucher in and I thought my newly purchased Memory Box 'Country Landscape' die would be perfect.  Oh, this is such a lovely die, I loved it as soon as I saw it but it was never in stock whenever I was at the Glitter Pot.  A few days before Christmas they got a delivery of the dies so I hotfooted it down there to snap this die up!

I made a side opening black card base, die cut the shape using silver glitter CS and glued that to the card front.  I layered two gorgeous Memory Box label dies for the sentiment and after adding brads I popped the label up.  Yes, I'm afraid to say I didn't come home from the Glitter Pot with just the Country Landscape die!

I then die cut the landscape twice more using black and white CS.  I glued the black shape to the envelope front.  I put 3d foam pads just at the bottom and sides of the white shape and popped it up inside the card to act as a pocket and that's where I put the voucher.  Owen really loved this I'm pleased to say.  At least this voucher holder is a bit more classy and sophisticated than his Christmas card LOL!
