Inspire.Create Stamping Challenges Challenge #022

Hello and welcome. You are currently visiting Karen Farquhar from Australia for the Inspire.Create Stamping Challenges. For challenge #022 we have a colour challenge. The colour combination is Powder Pink, Coastal Cabana and Shaded Spruce.

My eldest granddaughter is heading off to the Sunshine Coast, in Queensland this weekend for a short break from our chilly winter weather here on the South Coast of N.S.W. 
I have created a card for her to hold a little bit of spending money to take with her. (Nana's do that). The trip is a small milestone in her life. It will be her first holiday and air flight without her parents. She is so excited!
For my card I have used the stamp set Pocketful of Sunshine and it's coordinating Pocket Framelits.
With cash, sunglasses and ticket in her pocket she is all set for a fun time. The beauty of the Stampin' Up! Pocket Framelit is the little tabs at the sides which when folded under and adhered to your card create a 'pocket' into which you can slip extra gifts such as a gift voucher, notes or a small treat as an extra surprise. 

I have also created two little gift cards from the same stamp and thinlit die set. These cards could be attached to an envelope when giving money as a gift as well.

You may have already seen the little carry bag in the shape of a pocket on other demonstrator websites but I thought I would include one in this post.
To make the little carry bag cut 2 of the pocket dies and a strip of cardstock 1" (2.5cm) x 7 1/2" (19cm).
Score your 1" (2.5cm) strip at 2 1/4" (5.7cm), 3 3/4"(9.5cm) and 
5 1/4"(13cm).
Adhere the scored strip to the flaps on both of the pocket diecuts working your way around the pockets to form a box. 
Attach another 1" (2.5cm) strip of cardstock as a handle adjusting the height as desired.
These would make cute little party treat bags for kids parties. You could coordinate the colours with the party's theme.
