Snuggling in a Sweater & Sipping Cider: Gift Pouch

An excuse to wear a warm sweater and drink hot cider is always welcome, so as I was demonstrating this cute card on Facebook Live today (despite having no sound for the first minute), my friend suggested that it would be a perfect pouch for a hot drink, and I here it is as a pouch:
It's simply a landscape card with the opening at the top and the sides sealed to create a pouch.

I was following the #GDP054 sketch from the Global Design Team (turned it on it's side) and playing with the fabulous new Cable Knit Dynamic Designer Textured Embossing Folder (and it's a mouthful!). It's so *snuggly* you'll just want to rub your hands across the embossed paper over and over again. 

TIP: Spritz your card stock on both sides with water before putting it in the folder and remember to only use ONE plate on top when running it through the Big Shot. Your "sandwich" will look like this (from the top to the bottom):

spritz with water? does that just help to emboss better??? I have not heard this trick before!
Thank-you for taking the GDP challenge this week! - Krista from Canada
