Cheep Talk Gift Card Holder

I know it's still wintertime, but I'm in a springtime mood right now!  Groundhog Day is next week, and I'm hoping winter won't drag on for another six weeks. 

Today's project is a gift card holder.  The cutting template for this design is by Angie Kennedy Juda. I used the Cheep Talk stamp set that is on p. 113 of the Idea Book and Catalog.  I love the little curvy verses that line up just perfectly with the branch and leaves!

Here is how I did the shading on the branch and leaves image: I used my Stamp-A-Ma-Jig and stamped the image once in Always Artichoke ink, then I moved my Stamp-A-Ma-Jig slightly and stamped it again without re-inking.
