Pocket Card for Freshly Made Sketches and Color Throwdown

The color combination showcased at Color Throwdown this week seemed to match up with some supplies I had from a kit, especially that kraft color.  I had these little brown bags with chevron stripes from my October Card Kit from The Stamps of Life, and I thought those bags would be perfect for that color combo.  I also wanted to find a way to create a pocket card that could include a tag for a gift card. 

I used the sketch from Freshly Made Sketches this week, and so we have . .

Here is my card, which includes that brown bag front.  

Inside the bag, you can see a tag peeking out.  

 And here is the tag, slightly pulled out.  I chose to do this as a holiday card, but you could use any sentiment your wanted on this one. 

I can't wait to adhere a gift card to this and put it into action. 

Supplies Used - Gift Card Pocket Card
All Material from The Stamps of Life October Card Kit except for the sentiment on the tag, which is from The September Card Kit and the ribbon which is from Stampin' Up.  I used some circle dies from The Stamps of Life for my tag and for that indentation in the pocket.
