For You Earring Holder Card

At work we have a couple of Jahovas Witnesses, so we didn't want to do the Secret Santa at Christmas time, we wanted to be able to include them.  So, we are doing a Secret Snowman gift exchange this month as a way to 1, get to know our co-workers better and 2, get presents!  LOL  My person said she 'needed' more earrings.  So, I decided I wanted to do a card and a gift in one.  I wanted to be sure to add a snowman since it is a secret snowman gift exchange.  I'm not totally in love with how this turned out, but, it is something I can continue to figure out and work with.  My goal was to make it sort of like a shaker card...sort of...  The problem is that the posts are longer than what a normal shaker card would be.  I think next time I do this, I will create a small box and work around it...I tried to find a pattern or tutorial, but didn't have any luck.  I can't be the first person to come up with something like this...can I?

I used an adorable pre-colored image from Pink Gem Designs called Chloe & Snowman.  I used a rectangle die and a word die plus an edge punch and a black ribbon.
