Prize of 3 digi images from Etsy Store

For my DT inspiration I am using the cute little image 'Cup of Cocoa', which you can get here! Now who doesn't enjoy a lovely cup of cocoa or hot chocolate? Now with that in mind I had to include a couple of sachets in my creation...yummmmmm!! Here is what I came up with...very apt for this cute little image!

To make the Pocket
1. Cut a piece of card 12cm x 20cm
2. Score both long edges at 1cm and at 10cm down middle
3. Emboss one side, then tape or glue along both edges and stick together.
4. Decorate as required. I added ribbon border, with Christmas Tree topper and embossed die cut card.

For the card itself, I matt and layered glitter card with embossed purple pearl card, adding finished pocket at a jaunty angle. The image, I printed, coloured and carefully cut out and placed as shown, finishing off with felt snowflakes, gems and sentiment (printed using word) and layered on glitter card.
