Crazy 4 Challenges - Say Goodbye to Summer

It's time for the Crazy 4 Challenges - Say Goodbye to Summer challenge.  Labor Day is here!  Time to say goodbye to Summer, be it one last BBQ, dive in the pool a parade or picnic.  How will you celebrate?  
I decided to celebrate kids going back to school and looking into the future knowing that I will be needing a Thank You card for my son's teacher....I combined all the ideas into a gift card holder for a teacher.
I used Elizabeth Craft Designs' Tags & More 6- Daisy die to make the popsicle and the drips are from the Ice Cream Cone die.  To make the sunglasses and smile, I used Karen Burniston's Props 1 and Rocky the Crab.  The stamped sentiment is from Stampin' Up!'s You've Got This.
The perfect die for the gift card is Karen Burniston's Sleigh with Gift Card Pop It Ups die.  As you can see it's not a sleigh but the Barn Pop Stand styled as a school.  The wonderful thing about the Pop It Ups dies is you can put almost anything on the pop up portion.  I used the decorator dies from Holiday House to decorate the school.  I stamped sentiment from A Dozen Thoughts onto a companion die from Holiday House - I chose that shape to act as a "look here" arrow. I even found some small lettered stickers in my stash to write "School".
Here's a side view so you can see how the gift card slides down into the card with the (2) tabs holding the gift card in place.

Happy Stampin',
