Hidden Surprise

Well this weeks Polkadoodles Challenge was a fun one, well to be honest they all are. It was to add a pocket or envelope for a hidden surprise.

I had a plan, to keep it a simple card on the front and then the hidden surprise would be on the inside. 🙂

I started making a simple gatefold card and matting the left flap with kraft card and then papers from https://www.polkadoodles.co.uk/printable-papers-1-winnie-white-christmas-digi-downloads/

I also wanted to add my main image on the front, and I chose the adorable Winnie stamp and coloured her in with my colouring pencils adding shading where needed. She is available here www.polkadoodles.co.uk/snowy-footprints-digital-stamp-download-winnie-white-christmas-printables/ 

Now is the fun part, I wanted the little pocket to be a mini envelope perfect size for a gift card. I also added some fun images from polkadoodles to look like they were popping out of the envelope.

I added matt and layers using the same paper collection and kraft card to the inside and popped my little envelope on the bottom right corner.

Finally I added a little sparkle with some fun pom pom trim on the left hand flap and Voilà.

Hope you like it. xo


I haven’t been brought up to go trick or treating but I have recently become fascinated by Halloween and the history behind it.

I love horror films and ones that mess with your head trying to work out what is going on. I love reading thrillers like Stephen King, so creating a spooky card (with added sparkle) is right up my street, even though I do think cute halloween is more fun to do.

This is my next Polkadoodles make and it’s a shaker card, which I think are one of my favourite cards to make.

I started by creating a pumpkin shape card with orange card stock and the some of the papers from Halloween Trick or Treat printable download papers 3.

Then I added the digi stamp which is Winnie Wednesday Trick or Treat.

I wanted to add the shaker element to the front, to blend in with the card background, so its cut from the same orange card stock and backing papers. Then filled with fun sequins. The sentiment is Quotes – Winnie Special Moments, which is my go to set for sentiments.

Hope you like it and are all staying safe. xo
