Pocketfull of posies

A very long time ago I purchased a pocket-themed stamp set from CTMH. I love the concept and haven't dared to part with the set even though I haven't used it all that frequently. I made this card for my mom's birthday back in September. Hope you like it!

The pocket is one I cut out of my son's infant-sized jeans. Every time he outgrew a pair I cut out the back pockets and have saved them ever since (he's now 7!) I always new I'd want to use it on a project - just didn't know what or when. lol

The card is a little bigger than an A2 but I don't recall the exact size - it's since been mailed and I didn't write it down. I do know, however, that it fits into a 5x7 envelope.

Here's a close-up of the flowers.

Super cute. Love the idea of using real pockets. Too bad my kids are all grown up. I guess I'll have to snag some off my grandchildren's clothes.

This is just too cute. I wish you had told me about saving the pockets about 12 years ago. I'd have quite a stash.
