Birthday Lottery Ticket Holder

My husband asked me to create a birthday card for his Assistant's 25th Birthday.  I designed an accordion card that could hold 25 lottery tickets.   I think it would have been cool with gift cards tucked inside as well.   I covered the front with Green card stock and designer Happy Birthday paper.  I cut the 25 with my Cricut and glued onto two circles cut with punches.  I made the Rosette by hand (scoring at 1/4" and fan folding.
I punched the KATIE using Stampin up stamp set and layered it on colored scraps.

I cut 12" beige card stock into 4" strips.  I scored at 3.5" and attached them together to make the accordion card. I cut pockets our of colored card stock 4"x 2" to hold the lottery tickets. 

I cut the letters using my Cricut Storybook and punched the circles using my Stampin up circle punches.  For the inside pocket I used the Stampin up two step owl punch and inserted a decorated tag with my message. 

My husband said she loved it!
