Birthday Gift Card - Card!

I am always at a loss when it comes to a man's birthday card! Especially when you want to include a gift card!  I thought about the little "critter" from Paper Smooches, and decided he would deliver the perfect message!

                                 
Inside of card....
 This would work for any holiday or occasion.
I used Kraft cardstock for the base; Bazzill cardstock for sentiment and inside of card; Fancy Pants pattern paper, Kraft Kuts; Image, Paper Smooches, Birthday Buddies; twine, Kraft Outlet, and Momento Rich Cocoa ink. 

I pulled out my Zutter Distrezz-It-All and roughed up the edges a bit. To make the little tassle, I merely looped some embroidery thread and attached it to the hat!  The inside pocket is stitched with my sewing machine.
