Gift card holder for my MIL with Sweet November Tilly

Hi everybody!!

Today I have a project to show you that I created a few weeks back for my mother in law, Elly's birthday. Both she and my father in law love to work in the garden and my mother in law is also very good at flower arranging so I decided to give her a gift card for a garden center (Intratuin Janneke if you read this). When I saw the May release from All That Scraps I knew this cute Garden girl Tilly stamp from Sweet November would be just perfect for this holder.
Isn't she gorgeous? The pretty papers I used on this gift card holder are from a paper pad I won at a blog hop from Scrap&More on Angelique van Nuland's blog. It's a Life in the Country paper pad from Maja Design. The flowers are sweetheart blossoms by Wild Orchid Crafts combined with lace, pearls and rhinestones from stash. Everything's been handstitched again and don't worry Dangina (I thought it was you who asked me) I'll do a tutorial on how I handstich everything one of these days.
 Here is a close up of gorgeous Tilly, as always colored with Copic Markers and 3D paper pieced.
 A side view.
And the inside. I used a tutorial to make this gift card holder that I printed ages ago but just now found out that the blog where I got it from no longer exists. Jane Matsumoto did a sort of the same tutorial back in 2009 though I found out when I googled so if you want to try one of these please check her blog HERE. The only difference is I used a nestability to make the slot the card goes into and I think mine is a bit bigger. For the dutch girls, no this isn't the Intratuin card in the holder, it's my daughters library card but I didn't have the Intratuin card yet when I took the pictures :).
And finally the little pieces that were used to paper piece the image :).

Hope you like my little gift card holder. It's also up on the All That Scraps blog today so if you want to leave a little love there or here I'd love to read your comments!!
