Sparkles Christmas Challenge

I've got great news.....I'm on the Sparkles Christmas Challenges Design Team for 2014! I am thrilled to be creating with some very creative people.  Here's what I made for my first post.....
Helen picked this challenge and it's called More Than One Fold
I couldn't wait to start on Christmas Cards and Gift Card Holders for 2014.  So, off I ran to create this gift card/money holder.  I borrowed this stamp from my friend Virginia.  I think I may have to go on a search to find it...I'm loving this jolly Santa.  
The money/gift card holder was made using a Sizzix die, the Ornament is Poppystamps the border is Memory Box and the sentiment is a stamp called Bright and Merry G1117 is from Stampabilities.  The die cut it is sitting on is Spellbinders as is the die used on the front of the card.  And here is what the Sizzix die looks like when it's open...
