Instructions: This card is a pocket to use when you want to give money as a gift. The finished card measures 7 inches by 4 inches. Take a 7 x 12’’ white cardstock and fold at 4’’ and 8’’. Cut 5 pieces of 6 3/4 x 3 3/4. Ink the edge with leaf green ink. Glue 3 of them inside the card (try to use a plain one in the middle if you want to hand-write a sentiment). For the last one, don’t glue the top part of the paper, and fold it a little bit, to make a pocket where you can put you money. Use the remaining 2 pieces of paper for the top of the card (only the back will remain white). Take care to sew a seam with your sewing machine before gluing these 2 papers to give a special touch.

We are now going to make a paper sleeve that will slide over your card to keep the money inside but that you can remove since it will not be stuck. Take a 3 x 12’’ white cardstock and fold at 3 7/8’’ and 8 1/8’’. Glue it together taking care to make sure that the sleeve will slide well over the card and that it is not too tight. Cut 1 piece of 4 x 3 7/8” in designer paper. Ink the edge with leaf green ink. Glue it on your sleeve.

Make 2 foam flowers with the Dahlia Collection. Use the archival ink cactus flower. Here’s the steps to make the flowers: Stamp using your ink onto foam paper and diecut with the coordinating die. Color one of the flowers with pink ink. Heat a little bit with the heat gun and twist the petal with your finger to give them a twist. Add stamen in the center and affix it with hot glue.

Stamp, cut and emboss leaves from the Dahlia collection. Color with leaf green archival ink. Also stamp in green and color with zig markers element from the Floral Shoppe collection.

Stamp a sentiment on a white cardstock with cactus flower ink, die cut with Ornate oval die. Ink the edge in pink and glue it on your sleeve. Add cheesecloth on top of it and glue your flowers, leaves and filler flowers on it.
