MIM #23 -- part two

For my friend, Val's, birthday, I made her this card, using this week's Make It Monday at Papertrey Ink: Pockets with Edger Dies. However, I wanted to come up with a cool way to display the card with the gift (as I thought it would be way to bulky to fit in an envelope), so here's what I came up with, also using this week's MIM technique.

Now, as I said earlier, I don't own any edger dies, so I used a Mat Stack #5 die, along with some My Mind's Eye patterned paper and made a large pocket that I adhered to the outside of my kraft gift bag.

Here's a close up of the card in the pocket:

And with the card out of the pocket:

Thanks for looking!

What a beautiful gift ensemble. You did an amazing job! Your friend is very lucky to be receiving such beautiful packaging.

So very clever, I will definitely use your idea. I send a lot of gifts by UPS and this is a perfect way to package.

Oh, and you've outdone yourself! Seriously. Fabulous idea for the 'double pocket.' ;-)

What a totally cool and creative way to incorporate the card with the gift bag, into my fav's! I always make such bulky cards myself and this is a great way to for me to not have to "find" an envie to fit them! Love it!
