Snowman Season, Christmas Pocket Card, 2019 Stampin' Up! Holiday Catalog

Today I made one of those pocket cards.  I LOVE the look of these and they are super easy to make.

The base of my card is a folded half-sheet of Whisper White card stock.  I took a 2" x 4-3/4" strip of Designer Series Paper  (DSP) from the "Let it Snow" 12" x 12" paper pack.  I cut a 5" x 2-1/4" piece of Real Red card stock.

Next I made the pocket.  I found the instructions here.  They are very easy to follow and all you need is a 6" x 6" piece of DSP.  After folding mine, I glued it so it wouldn't come apart.

I die cut a Bermuda Bay circle and a Whisper White scalloped circle.  I taped the two of them together. 

The snowman is from a piece of DSP from the same pack.  There's a page that has snowmen that are textured.  Some of them are even  the same size as the matching punch so you could punch one out.  But I had one in my stamp set that I had fussy cut.  I set the snowman in place using Dimensionals.  I added the arms from the "Let it Snow" Embellishment Kit.  I also added the charcoal buttons from the same kit.  I set the circle on the pocket using Dimensionals.  

I set the pocket on top of the card so I could see where to put the words.  The words are from the "Snowman Season" set and I stamped them using Real Red ink. 

Then I taped the pocket in place.  I added a little hat from the same DSP. I set it in place using Dimensionals.  

I added two Hershey Holiday mini candy bars in the packet.  And there you have it.  This little pocket also holds a gift card (or cash).  Fun, huh?

Thank you SO much for stopping by today,
