What's in your pocket ?

This week at Jellypark friends Friday challenge the challenge is to create a card or other paper craft project with a pocket.

I used a fantastic gift card tutorial here at YNS - thanks Maureen. I was a bit dubious about the twine pull working but it works like a dream. These are so easy to make and can be adapted for any occasion - I will def' be making more of these !

Here are a few more photo's to give you a better idea how this works !

I have used one of the new jellypark images called girl in warm winter hat available at the jellypark store here and coloured her with my prisma pencils then added the turquoise to her coat with a sakura gelly roll pen. My DP's are from the 6" Echo park happy days pad.

My largest scalloped oval die wasn't big enough to mat my image onto so I die cut an oversized scalloped circle and cut it in half then overlapped the halves {lining up the scallops} until I had the right size. It's a little wider than the oval but I think it works just fine.

I hope you will hop over to the jellypark challenge blog to check out all the other gorgeous DT inspiration and that you'll join in and play along with us too x
