Scan N Cut Saturday – Creating A Greeting Card With An Internal Gift Pocket In Canvas Workspace

July 28, 2018 — 7 Comments

Staying with the theme of creating greeting cards from scratch, this week I will share with you how to create a card with an internal gift pocket, you know, for loadsa money or whatever.

Here is how the finished project looks in Canvas Workspace.

Canvas Workspace Tutorial

When the project is closed up the pocket sits inside the card and you can then slip in loads of cash or an I.O.U – whichever you fancy.

Video coming up shortly…

First, a quick reminder that my digital cutting file website recently underwent a makeover and is now up and running again so if you would like to take a look, please visit Digital Craft Emporium.

Also, If you would like to see more tutorial videos or get more hints, tips and techniques, please check out the canvas playlist here – Canvas Workspace YouTube playlist or check out the blog archive here –

Right, let’s get cracking.

Hope you enjoyed that and will find it useful in the future.

Any comments or questions about this post or video can either be left here or over on YouTube.

Thanks for stopping by, see you again next time :)

Bye for now.

    I do that faster on a scoring board than you can start your PC.



      Aye, but its not a competition and some folk are unable to use a scoreboard so enabling them is a good thing, surely?
      This wasn’t intended as a replacement for an established technique, just a starting point for folk to leap off from with these machines.
      Finally, I only have to do it once.



    Thank you John, always great tutorials!

    I like these John, because I will sit and watch when they are put in front of me, where I don’t often think to watch videos normally. The basic ones are beginning to lead me to getting a bit more adventurous. Thanks xx
