Side pocket card
I saw this style card on Diane Sisneros' blog and wanted to try it out right away. I changed it to hold a small card and check I was sending someone.
I used some retired card stock, Baja Breeze for the card base. The embossed layer is soft suede and I had that piece in my scrap folder, already embossed. I used some retired, but one of my favorite DSP's, Elegant Soirre for the pocket and the mini card inside the pocket. I punched out some blossoms from the blossom punch in Baja breeze and sponged some of the same color on the edges. I layered these with a glue dot in between them. I stamped one if the images from Mixed Bunch in Baja breeze and sponged some color on the edges and layered onto the other flowers with a glue dot. I added a little crystal effects to the center of the blossom. The card insert, I started with a piece of DSP that was 3 1/2" x 4" and folded it in half to 2", then angled the edges so it would fit inside the pocket. I did not measure how much I cut off the edge, but it fit In the pocket and held the check, folded up. The greeting is from the set, Many Thanks.
