52 Cards Wk17: Pick a Pocket

Week 17's prompt for the 52 Card Challenge was another sketch which included adding a pocket or envelope to our card 
I knew in my stash somewhere I had some pockets from Papermania's All Aboard collection which I had brought last year. If I'm honest I must have had a mad moment last year as not only did I buy the pockets but also the die cut pack, tags and 6x6 papers. In fairness it was all reduced but why oh why did I buy it? We don't travel so it has all just been sitting there doing nothing so this seemed the perfect opportunity to use some of it up. 
I added a luggage label to the pocket but stuck it in so it is just for show and not serving a purpose. The tickets are a combination of a MME ticket from a strip I received in a grab box and an actual train ticket from a railway in Norfolk my parents had visited. 
Using a kraft card base means the inside is not smooth so any writing inside is not easy to read. In an attempt to actually use this collection up I took another piece of paper and made an insert
The morale of this blog post: think before you buy! Don't buy just because something is reduced! 


  1. Fab card and love how you have done the inside - I am on the hunt for pockets but it looks like I might have got rid of the few that I had in the last grand clearout and LOL now I need them!!

  2. Great card Jess x
