Pocket card


I rarely make cards with pockets, I've no idea why not as pockets are lovely for tucking little notes or messages in. I came across a lovely heart pocket template on splitcoaststampers, so I thought I'd try it out on this card for the 'Pockets' challenge on Rainbow Lady's challenge blog.



The background is a piece of buttermilk cardstock, run through the Cuttlebug with the 'Swiss Dots' embossing folder.I cut the pocket from a piece of K & Co Bailey paper, it's great for these folded pockets as it's double sided. All I had to do is cut out, fold and stick down! I also punched some leaves from the paper scraps. I've used a narrow sheer ribbon threaded through the cream cotton lace at the left then used the same ribbon plus a paler cream for the double bow. The sentiment is one of the new Daisy Bucket clear stamps.. it reads 'Love is in Everyday Moments'. Prima flowers, brads and silver spacer beads finish off the card.
