Holiday Card With A Pocket


It's Anja here. Hope you had a good time during the holidays. I had a few days off work and it was so nice to spend it at home not doing much.

But I took some time for crafting. One of the projects was this cute holiday card I did for a gift. It my give you an idea as a gift card holder.

For this card I used:
- Cottage Cutz dies (Moose Pulling Gnome Sled, Holiday Corners, Santa Over Christmas Town, Peeker Pocket, Nested Wacky Stitched Square Set),
- Distress Inks,
- craft card base (15x15 cm),
- dark red cardstock for background (3 pieces of 14x14 cm) and die cuts,
- patterned paper (3 pieces of 13,5x13,5 cm),
- white card stock for die cuts,
- glitter embossing powder,
- embossing ink,
- black pen,
- heat gun,
- paper glue.

First I cut and colored the moose and the gnomes.

Next I cut and embossed the corners with glitter powder.

I did the same with the snowflakes.

Then I cut all six squares for the background and insides.

And last I cut additional squares and the pocket. I used red card stock for the pocket.

And when all that was cut and colored I assembled the card together.

This is the inside of the card with a pocket to hold your gift card.

And that's all form me. I wish you a nice start of the new week and see you again on Sunday.

Those gnomes are just adorable and the pocket inside is so clever! I will need to do this in the future when I give a gift card.
