Beautiful Text; gift card holder

Welcome.  This will be a quick post, as I am busy trying to get several crafts finished for a local craft fair on Saturday.  [these will be present for sale]
I wanted to share a sweet pair of gift card holders I recently made.  I am entering this other gift card holder in a challenge over @ Word Art Wednesday.  Their current challenge is 'Anything Goes' family friendly.

a little something for you
Recipe:  I used vintage cream card stock by Paper Trey Ink for the base.  I love this heavy weight card stock.  Its nice and thick, and holds up to added embellishments.  {smile}
I used the same Melissa Frances text pattern paper.  I matted it with either pool party card stock, or pink pirouette card stock; both by Stampin' Up!  I did some machine stitching.  I stitched some scrap pieces of lace/toile trim to the fronts.  Made multi-loop bows out of seam binding.  And added a tag.
I used the same stamp on the inside.  Heat embossed.  One in blue. and one in blue.

Thank you for looking!  I hope you have been inspired to play along in either of these fabulous challenge sites.  {smile}
