Birthday Pocket

Hello and welcome.

Today’s card is for one of our grandson-in-laws. I saw a card like this on Pinterest and thought it would work well for him. Background paper is a small piece from my stash. It seemed to need a little dimension, but I thought an embossing folder might be too much pressure, so I scored every 1/4″ across then edged it with black to give the illusion of a mat. Pocket is from my Silhouette. It was cut with both denim print paper and white cs to give it some stability. It looked to clean & neat, so I sort of distressed the edges. Surprisingly I found the brads in my stash. Sentiment die is Stitched Ovals by Die-namics, happy birthday stamp is Gina K’s Birthday Blessings set. Both pocket and die cut are popped up. We will be putting more than a 1$ bill in it.

Thanks for stopping by. Have a great day and stay healthy & safe.

  1. Great masculine card. Your background works great with your distressed pocket. The brads are a great addition.

  2. Awesome distressed pocket and money is always welcome to the recipient. Great card Gerry.

  3. I really thought that background was matted, well done! Love the little pocket and the brads, so clever. I bet a gift card would fit well in there too! Perfect!

  4. Gerry this is a great card! You did a wonderful job distressing the pocket and making it look like it should. The background was a great idea with the scored lines, too.
