Hello, How are you today.  Keeping warm, I hope.  The weather is very foggy here.  I didn't realize how much I depend on the sun when photographing cards.  Last week I bought the DCWV Denim Stack.  There is a page of pockets.  I cut them out to use as gift card or money holders.  I used kraft paper for the base.  I popped up the pocket with dimensional tape.  There is room to hide money or a gift card.   PAPER PLAYTIME is having a "Use Brown" challenge.  Also DIE CUTTING DIVAS are having a "Use a border Punch and Ribbon Challenge.  I made the envelope with a sheet from the stack.
