A Welcome Dove

My pastor approached me the other day and wanted to know if I would be interested in making 'welcome' cards for new visitors to the church. He said that really liked how home-made cards were so much more meaningful than a Hallmark card... and wanted to include a small gift card in the inside. I told him that he was speaking my language! Sign me UP!

I saw some similar ideas on Splitcoast and needed something REALLY simple and came up with my version of this gift card holder. The ribbon unties to open the card.
