Pocket Card

This card is a pocket. The card you write on is the part that you pull out of the center. It was fun to make, everyone loves it, and it's nice to have something different. Start with half a page of Certainly Celery cardstock and fold it in half. All of the stamps on this project are from Polka Dots & Paisley. I stamped polka dots first with my VersaMark ink pad onto the Celery cardstock. Then punched half of a 1 1/8 inch circle out of one of the sides. Ran SNAIL adhesive down each side and glued down. Then stamped paisleys in black onto the Whisper White cardstock, and colored a bit of the paisleys in with my Blender pens and Chalks. Then matted with Basic Black and Rose Red. For the tag, I stamped the flower in Black and the outline in Red. The tag is punched from Rose Red and the smaller one is free-hand to make it smaller. Then I glued a piece of ribbon tied in a knot on top of the tag and attached to the card. (I'd recommend a pop-dot here, it would make it look so much better - but I didn't think about it last night!) Then for the inside, adhere a white square to a larger Mellow Moss. Punch a Red 1 1/8 inch circle, fold in half and attach to the top center. Punch a 1/2 inch black circle and adhere to the front of the Red circle, punch a 1/4 inch hole through all layers and tie a ribbon through. It was really an easy project, but sure gets some WOW's.
