I love to make Easel Cards! There are lots of variations and tutorials out there so I won't put one more here, but I wanted to share a little idea I came up with.
I turned the decorative element along the bottom into a pocket and it was super easy!
The decorative strip measures 2" x 4". I decided to "pop" it up by using 1/4" strips of cardstock along the bottom and each side. I found that 2 layers of cardstock made it deep enough to hold a gift card. Of course I used The Best Glue Ever to adhere everything! It has such a nice tight hold I know my pocket is not going to peel off or fall apart. Anytime I am papercrafting and creating something that needs to be manipulated, I reach for The Best Glue Ever!
I think i am going to make a card for a friend and include some movie tickets. What are you going to put inside your pocket?
P.S. The card was decorated using Moxxie's Very Merry Unbirthday.
