Making the Gift Card Pocket

Creating a card with a hidden pocket is so easy! Start by creating a card base. Cover the card with a patterned paper. Not a fan of patterned paper? Do what I did! Use a stencil to create a pattern with ink on cardstock.

Take a Keepsakes Envelope and cut a piece of patterned paper to fit inside it. Slide the patterned paper into the pocket. Then use a paper trimmer to cut away the pocket’s flap. Adhere the pocket onto your card.

Take a piece of double-sided tape and apply it onto the card, directly over the pocket. Remove the liner and burnish some foil onto it.

Now, apply one more piece of double-sided tape onto the card. Remove the liner and burnish some more foil onto it.

Before we go on with the card, here’s a quick tip for storing your sheets of Metallic Transfer Foil. Use a page protector for storage. Add a piece of cardstock or cardboard to the page protector and slide the foil sheets into it. I find this helps keep them nice, crisp and from getting damaged.

Finishing the Card

Now, back to the card. Stamp a sentiment on a strip of cardstock. You’ll also want to stamp, die-cut and color an image your card. Adhere them to the card with Thin 3D Foam Squares.

Complete your card by writing a message in the card and adding a gift card to your pocket. This pocket is also perfect for cash and gift certificates!
