hambohoedownbuttonIt is the third Wednesday of the month which means it is time for a new challenge at Hambo so come on over and join in the last challenge of 2013…Let’s HOEDOWN!

For today’s Hambo Hoedown we are challenged to USE KRAFT. I don’t do that very often so I had to dust off my package of kraft cardstock and let Bailey take over from there.

Hambo Bailey Christmas

I decided this would be a fun card to give to Cash’s (my sweet black lab) groomer. So I added a fun little pocket on the side for a gift card.

Kraft GC Hambo

The pocket is very easy.

  • Cut a piece of cardstock 4″X 2 1/8″.
  • Score 1/8″ on two short sides and a long side.
  • The other long side gets cut at an angle (nothing specific just eyeball it)
  • Fold the scored sides under (cut out the bottom squares where the the score lines intersect so it won’t be too bulky)
  • Add score tape on the outside of the folds (so it will stick to the card not to itself)
  • Adhere to the inside of your card – this is a pocket that you decorate to your preference. (I cut a piece of DP that coordinates with the front of my card. It cut it 3.5″X1.5″ and cut the top angle when I cut my pocket so it would match up. Once you fold under and 1/8″ on each side it leave an 1/8″ border.)
