Dress Up a Holiday Gift Card

The sketch over at Create with Connie & Mary this week gave me an idea: A hidden gift card pouch! Here's my card for the CCMC 229 sketch:
 But here is the fun little twist: It swings on the Rhinestone Brad!
 And here is the back closure:
When you untie it, surprise! A pocket to put a gift card in!
I created the pocket/envelope using the Simply Scored tool and Diagonal plate from Stampin' Up!: Cut a piece of Designer Series Paper (from the Candlelight Christmas pack in the Holiday catalog) to 6 1/2", then score on two sides at 3 1/4" and on the other two sides at 2 3/8".
