Here is a Gift card holder l made using the
None coloured image

Check out my Merry Christmas with the details below
It's a technique called 
 "Camouflaging Die cuts"
Basically you die cut your Image or Word die from the base card/paper
Then l Die cut another 5 Sentiments
You then just build it up and placed the 1st die cut
On the top giving it the Camouflage/dimention look
Looking like this l'm just loving the effect it creates 
l got the idea from Di Here 
And Di got it from Greta Here
