PTI MIM #68 Pocket Cards

2012 06 02_6148_edited-1

Hi all. This is my second post for today so be sure to scroll down to see my other post. :)

I had a chance to get down to my craft room last night and whipped up this pocket card for this week's Make-It-Monday challenge over at Papertrey Ink. I really like to use the Front & Center die, scored and folded, as a pocket. It's just such a different look - a little cute and frilly. Nothing wrong with that. :)

Here's the pocket all by itself. I wanted this card to be mailable so I just wrapped some Raspberry Fizz ribbon around the pocket without a bow (read: I couldn't get the dang bow to look right so gave up and just left it flat.)

And here's a close-up of the tea pot. I used Amuse Lichen for the solid tea pot image and Amuse Fern for the outline tea pot image.

And here's the card insert. A few images of Turning A New Leaf (did you notice the leaf image on the tea pot matches the Turning A New Leaf image on the card insert? Pretty clever if I do say so myself) and the tea cup and sentiment from an old anniversary set called Everyday Classics. Love that set.

And here's one last parting shot of the card.

Doing this project I remembered how much I like pocket cards. I really should make that style more often.

Gorgeous card! I like how you used the front and center die to create a pocket. Must try that soon! - Irma
