Stampin Up! Christmas Gift Card Holders

I have a lot of family I buy gift cards for and this is the first year I have made gift card holders.  Normally I put them in an envelope and they are very uninteresting.   I saw on a blog somewhere (I cant remember the creator sorry) these great gift card holders made with the Sizzix Top Note Die.  They are very easy to make and are really cute.  These could be adapted to any design not just xmas.  I can just imagine these done for any special occasion. 

I have used real red for the top ones and  Christmas Cocoa DSP from last years Christmas promotion.  The bottom two are made with Letters to Santa DSP and Riding hood red.  As you can see there are two topnotes attached with a brad that swivels to reveal the gift card.
