A Pocket Full of Cash

    My twin nieces celebrated their birthday earlier in the week.  Being teenagers I thought they would prefer cash instead of the usual gift card. The layout is the same for both cards, but the background papers are different.
                                        Card #1





   I created my own pocket cutting a 2.5" by 2.5" template. I used my sewing machine to add some stitching. Since teenage girls love bling, I used rhinestones to create the design on the pocket.

                                  Card #2


 An up close shot. I created a tag using the sentiment 'celebrate' from Mixed Messages.



 



 Thanks for stopping by.

This is so clever. What a great imagination you have. I love the bling, and that little tag on the side. I'm sure it will be you niece's favorite card and present.

Oh I never thought of actually using the back pocket cut out as... a pocket! A super cute way to adding pockets for storing everything ^_^
