Christmas Gift Card Pockets

Over the past few weeks I have been busy getting things together to do a market stall at my local markets which was held yesterday. I had an awesome day and sold most of my Christmas bits, but the one thing that I sold six out of seven were the Christmas Gift Card pockets.

I bought a tutorial some time back to help raise funds for a little boy called "Hudson". You can read more about this amazing little boy and the hardships his family has endured by checking out their blog here. Anyway, in this bundle I received were some terrific ideas, one of them being a Gift Card pocket by Monique Fielder.

Here are the ones I made:-

The top pick is the pocket all closed up with a belly band and the bottom one is opened up with a gift card inside and a space to write a greeting.

A lovely Crumb Cake, Chocolate Chip and Baja Breeze version.

This one is made using Very Vanilla and a spotty Christmas DSP.

One with Rose Red cardstock and the very lovely Jolly Holiday DSP.

The very cheeky reindeer from Holiday Lineup complimented this one.

This next one is made with Kiwi Kiss and a lovely stripey DSP.

And last, but not least, this lovely Baja Breeze and the cute snowmen.

Wow, this was a long post. Hope you didn't mind scrolling down. I had so much fun making these and they are just perfect for Christmas gift cards for the "hard to buy for" person.

Happy staming,
