Cardmaking, Frosty Festivities Christmas & Winter

Christmas Card with a Store Gift Card Pocket

(This post is part of my Frosty Festivities 2013 Blog Event)

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…

Season’s Greetings:

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!

  1. We don’t do many gift cards. 🙂 In our family we pool our money together and donate to our favorite charity and only buy for the littles. We have a camp for special needs kids/adults that we have supported for many years. We love it!
