Every Christmas there will be someone we buy a store gift card for instead of a physical present. It might be because they live far away and we’re avoiding postage costs, or perhaps they’re just fussy?! So I’ve made this card with a pocket to hold a store gift card…
I used the Sweet Stamp Shop’s ‘Speedy Greetings’ set to paper-piece a delivery van for the front of the pocket – so cute!
Here’s how to put the pocket together:
Step 1: Cut a piece of patterned paper to 7″ x 3″. Draw a horizontal line at the 3½” central point, and then vertical lines ¼” below the top edge and above the bottom edge:
Step 2: Cut the ¼” sections off at one end, and snip the corners off the sections at the other end, to make tabs:
Step 3: Crease along the lines and rub out any pencil marks. Cut a semi-circle notch from one short end of the pocket. Add glue to the flaps and fold the pocket shut:
Then add it to a card ready for Christmas!

Do you give out many store gift cards at Christmas?
That’s the last post for tonight. I think things got a bit late this evening, and I may have missed a post out somewhere along the way, but let’s keep that between friends, okay?! I’ll be back with lots more inspiration tomorrow!
