Gift Pocket Card

I have just written the Monday Mojo post on Dottie's World so will just repeat it here, I am feeling lazy and haven't got the strength to reword it when I show you my cards ;o)


The new Girls About Town collection lends itself to some gorgeous ideas, here are just a couple.


If you have forgotten to get someone a gift then why not try this idea. I have used it as a birthday gift here (as I needed to) but you can of course quite easily change it to Christmas. Instead of a second shop you could add a Christmas tree for example. Similarly you can substitute the coffee mug holding the money for a present box, or a handbag etc, the possibilities are endless.




I cut a pocket in the mug at the top and attached a piece of heavy cardstock at the rear to make a solid pocket at the back.
The picture below shows the slit at the top


I attached a length of rick rack ribbon to the inside of the card at the top to emulate the scallops found on some shop canopies. A good idea would also be to cut along the bottom of the canopy itself on a larger shop image and slide the rick rack below the edge to achieve the same effect.


Here is another card I made, once again using an image from the gorgeous Girls About Town collection
If you haven't already got this bundle then, why not? I simply cannot see how you could live without it! There are 54 images, backgrounds and sentiments. Check out what you get in the bundle here.

Thanks for visiting xxx

Such beautiful cards and I love the new downloads, will definitely be getting these. Great idea for the coffee cup money holder, a very creative way to use the image. Have a lovely Christmas. Chris x

Hi Karen, just love this card, I have downloaded the Girls about Town, but can you let me know where I will find the coffee cup image? This is perfect for my daughter's 40th birthday next week!
