Elf File - Gift Card Holder

Today I have a final gift card holder that I'd like to share with you.  It's actually a card, but it's doubling as a gift card holder since I added glue dots to the gift card, stuck it on the inside of the card and then stamped my sentiments around it.
 
I made this for my dad - the man who has everything.  Every year I ask my mom what I should get for my dad and every year it's the same thing.  Just get him a gift card to Bass Pro because he's always finding something new he wants for his fishing.  And so that's what I do.  I get him a gift card.....
 
Rather than just giving him the gift card in an envelope though I wanted to make a card or something for it to go in.  So I thought it would be cute to use all the different elf stamps I had and set to work creating this themed card.  I used the Buddy the Elf file from the recent Christmas movie blog hop sponsored by SVG Cutting Files and the file folder from the Cricut cartridge Graphically Speaking. 
 
All of the different stamped sentiments you see on my file folder, pages and inside of the card are from the Jaded Blossom stamp sets Elf Workshop and Elf Report Card.  Sadly though I do not have any markers or colored pencils with which to color in my elf, but that's okay I think it's fine the way that it is.

Now of course I'm entering this card in to a challenge or two.  Want to come play along as well?  I'm entering this card into the following challenges:

Elf (Holiday Inspired Project) - Red Carpet Studios - Ends December 31st
