You are so clever to put the tear away portion on the photo! Great card!

Chris Cross

Your work always amazes me!

Billie A

Great idea and love the thought that you put into the gift reveal on the card. I love seeing your work and details you put into your work. Always a pleasure.

Maria Doricheva

Love your gift card holders, Betsi! I would be sorry to ruin the beautiful design to get the card out:(

Natalie Winterstein

What a fun idea! I have never tried using a photo in that way before but now I am curious to give a try. Thanks for the chance to win.

Mendi Yoshikawa

Such a fun idea! Is it bad that I'm worried that you had to tear it open to illustrate it for us? It's so pretty! :)


That tear away strip is a magical touch and one I've never seen before. I'll be using it! Like others have said, it's a shame to have to tear into it, but the recipient could always tuck the torn piece into the opening to keep it after the gift card is taken out. I keep all my handmade cards I receive, so I'd hate to throw part of it away....
