Fun and Festive Pocket Card

Happy Monday! Can you believe that Christmas is just a few days away? Where did the year go? I trust that everyone has all of their shopping completed. Well, if you’re planning to give gift cards, then this post is for you. I give gift cards all the time, but I don’t like using the standard envelopes that come with the gift card. I like to make my own. While browsing on the Internet, I came across a really cute way to present a gift card. And that is what I want to share with all of you. This is an A2 sized card, so it fits into a standard envelope which is really nice if you plan on mailing it.

patterned paper: Merry & Bright (Glimpses, Signify Pink)
card stock: Pure Poppy, Vintage Cream (Papertrey Ink)  Fresh Asparagus (GinaK Designs)
stamps: Friendship Jar, Friendship Jar Holiday Fillers, Signature Christmas (Papertrey Ink)
ink: Memento Tuxedo Black  Olive (Close to my Heart) Pure Poppy (Papertrey Ink)
other: Apple Red Glitter Ritz glitter, Essentials Glue Pad, Copic markers, Sakura Stardust glitter pen, gold cord

And on the inside is a pocket for a gift card...or cash :)

Isn't it cute? These were fun and easy to make. Just a simple card base that can be used in many ways; for birthdays, weddings, graduation, you make the base and then decorate to suit your needs.

 Thanks for visiting today. Make it a great Monday.
