Playful Penguin Gift Card Holder

With all the rain and cold weather that moved in yesterday we just might end up having a cold Christmas this year.  Of course the good thing about that is that I've been sitting in my craft room in my jammies, drinking coffee with the space heater going while I get the last of my gifts made.
Right now I want to share a gift card holder that I finished this morning.  For this project I cut the mug from the Cricut cartridge Everyday Pop Up Cards and George.  I welded two of the mug shapes together and then used George to create the slit for the gift card tag to slide into. 
To create my tag/card holder, I embossed the tag using one of my Christmas folders and then inked over it with some Tim Holtz Distress Ink in Broken China.  To hold the gift card in place I simple adhered glue dots to the back and stuck it on the tag.
The penguin is from the Playful Little Penguins file at Too Cute by Jessica.  The stamped sentiment on the mug and the snowman on the tag are from the Simply Christmas set by Craftin Desert Divas.
And now I am going to enter this project in to the following challenges:
Christmas - Craftin Desert Divas - Ends December 21st
December Linky Challenge - DL Art - Ends December 31st
Anything Goes - Fantabulous Cricut Challenge - Ends December 21st
