Gift pocket card

Good afternoon, peeps! Well, did you think I'd got lost again? No, this bad blogger is back again with a new project. This card was inspired by an tutorial by Mary in the 'Midsummer Night's Dream' issue. I've changed the measurements slightly but it's still recognisable as the same project. I do love cards like this becasue you can send a gift and a card in one package. This is how the card looks closed with Tilda looking adorably cute as usual! I've decided to place the card 'recipe' at the end of my posts so, for those who prefer not to read my ramblings, they can cut to the chase and find the ingredients in one place. Here is how the card looks when it's open: You'll see that the ubiquitous mini Easter eggs are in evidence again - they keep travelling from one card with a container to another! I must confess though that this is the second bag - the first one disappeared on a bad afternoon (hangs head in shame)!! I forgot to take a photo of the back but the same shape is repeated for a jotting panel. I hope you like this one, peeps - I shall be teaching a class how to make it at Samuel Taylor, Brighouse in June, so many thanks go to Mary for the inspiration.
