A card for Lucy

Last week I wanted to make a card for Lucy as need to post some money for some papers she had for sale, I drew a lot of ideas for different pocket cards as wanted to conceal the cash and not just put it inside the card.

I used paper from K&Company cut to size and added a cream coloured strip which I had stamped with a sentiment. I used my sewing machine to zigzag stitch along both sides of the strip of paper. After fixing the green paper to the butterfly paper with double sided tape (just along the bottom edge as the machine doesn't like sticky tape!), I stitched all around the edge of the butterfly paper which included going over the green piece.

I used a die cut label from Spellbinders Nestabilities label 1 with my Cuttlebug and stuck ribbon all the way round and added a bow with glue dots. I stamped thank you under the ribbon. I then created a pocket on the reverse with two pieces of the same colour card buy sewing them together along 3 edges and then sticking them with double sided tape to the back of the die cut.

Thanks again to Lucy for the gorgeous paper :) xxx
