Here is a card that I made for my mom for Christmas. I purchased a phone card for her, the kind that you just get a cash register type receipt for the amount of the purchase.

I used green card stock for the base of the card and layered it with a piece of holly/harlequin type of paper. I measured the size of the receipt and cut a piece of shiny Christmas paper to make a pouch. making sure that the receipt could be removed easily. I folded the sides in and then turned up the end making sure everything was even.
The pouch was then glued on a piece of contrasting card stock. I attached fiber to the back of the card stock before I attached both pieces to the front of the card. This gives tha appearance of a tag.

You get both a card and the gift. This idea may be used for other occasions, such as birthdays, anniversaries, etc.
