A Little Pocket Card






Today's card is courtsey of the Pocket Card tutorial from Krista Driessen. She has been making these little pocket cards lately and I just had to try one out! I used Going Gray card stock for the card base and stamped the flourish from the Baroque Motifs set in Basic Gray on the front cover and flap. I can't seem to get enough of my new nestabilities either! I cut out the 3 biggest frames (biggest to smallest) in Basic Black, Pink Pirouette (retired) and Whisper White card stocks and layered them together using the Snail adhesive. The sentiment is from the Full of Life stamp set and I colored it using the Rich Razzleberry In Color marker and the Basic Black Stampin' marker. For a little extra somethin' I used 3 brads in Basic Black and a piece of scrap Basic Gray Taffeta ribbon to finish it off. The fun part of this little card is the double pocket inside, created by using an envelope. Take the envelope, seal it, cut it in half (the long way) and attach it to the inside. Now you have a perfect little card to send a little surprise in! I just love these and I'm sure I'll be making more! Thanks Krista! :)
And thanks to you for stopping by! I'd love to hear what you think of these little gems, so feel free to leave a comment.
Until then...
Happy Stampin'
