Masculine Birthday Card and Coordinating Gift Card Holder

Hello again! It has been a while and I'm sorry about that, however, the yard has been a life sucking force for the last several weeks. You know, raking, digging, pulling, planting, hoeing, once done, the cycle starts again. Our yard is beautiful, but man it is a lot of work. Also, we have had several happenings in the family, husband returning from overseas and several birthdays.
So, I have been creating, just not posting much.
The photo I'm sharing now was inspired by a card that was created by pair-a-dox creations. Kudos ladies, this is a great man card. The smaller card is actually a coordinating gift card holder. I found the template for the gift card holder from Dawn on YouTube. The colors for both projects are SU's River Rock and Baja Breeze. The stamp set us SU's Nature Silhouettes. On the card I used a Cuttlebug embossing folder for the background.
For the gift card create do the following:
cut card stock 4 1/4 X 11
Score at 3, 5 1/2, and 8
Fold score lines accordion style
Tape the two center folds together using tacky tape
Use the SU Word Window punch to create a straight line within the center fold.
Use a 1/2 inch circle punch to create an indentation that allows easy grasp of the gift card.
You can add a belly band if preferred over the ribbon, cut it at 1 X 7 1/2.
