Avant-Garden, Birthday Card, Pocket Card Tutorial, Weekend Project, 2017 Sale a Bration

This pocket card is a LOT of fun to make.  Plus it's different.  It's always a lot of fun giving cards that don't fit the normal card features!

I found this pocket card on Pinterest.  I searched it back to Qbee's Quest.  She's always got a lot of fun things to make on her blog. She was inspired by a the pretty pockets card kits in the Sale-a-Bration catalog.

You can go to her blog to get the info for these cards, it's not mine to give out.  Though I will share some tips with you.  One, pay attention to the instructions.  I cut my card for the pocket right but I cut the Decorative Series Paper (DSP) the same size.  It should have been bigger (as per her instructions!!!).  I used glue to put the side and bottom together.  I find tape doesn't hold as well.

I think the front would be prettier if it were dry embossed.  There's some fun embossing folders that would look great on the front of this pocket.  Measurements for the oval dies are 1-3/4" and 2-1/2. She tells you to pick out them in a different way.  I prefer measurements.  Oh and when scoring, use a scrap piece of copier paper or other scrap paper to make your first one so you don't get messed up and score in the wrong areas.  

I used Sweet Sugarplum cardstock and ink for the flowers and for the words I used Rose Red. Though I think the original one was done using Rich Razzleberry.  The leaves were done using Mint Macaron.

These are pretty simple to make.  But I do recommend making the first one with the scrap paper. Plus you'll have a template for additional ones.  You will want to make more!!!

Thank you SO much for visiting today,
