Shop 'til you drop!

I thought I'd share a card with you that I made today.  This card uses the My Pink Stamper Pinka-licious set and has a pocket inside to store a gift card (or some money) for the recipient.

I added stickles on the flowers as well as around the sentiment.  The camera doesn't quite pick up all the glittery goodness, but hopefully you get the idea. :-)  Also, I added an extra little green strip and popped up the flower on the purse....just to add a little extra dimension.

And the inside...


Making the pocket was very simple.  I just cut a strip of black cardstock (2 x 5 1/4).  Then cut my patterned paper strip at 1 3/4 x 5.  I then adhered my patterned paper to my black strip of paper.  Then , to make the pocket -when adding it to the inside of my card, I only put adhesive on the edges of both sides...and also along the bottom.
