Happy New Year!

 Our new challenge over at Cut It Up is Happy New Year! I have created a gift card holder/greeting card for a January Birthday that also celebrates the New Year for Horses!  You see, January 1 is the official Horse Birthday!  More about this in the intro of the video below.

  I have combined the January Word Die Cut with pages from the Mixed Shapes Album Book, both from our sponsor, for a fun and interactive card front!  A gift card, cash, certificate can slide in the front of the card between the brown and floral layers of cardstock.

Curious how I put this together?  Check out the video below.
