Pocket Card

I've never made a pocket card, but I enjoyed Heather's video HERE & decided to give it a try.  My latest PTI order included Trendy Tree Tops stamp set & dies & I couldn't wait to use them.  The trunk is cut from K&Co Sheer Simplicity Neutral paper pad & is mounted with foam tape.  The "grass" is a strip of Doodlebug Design grasshopper daisy stripe pp with the edge distressed & inked with Brilliance Pearlescent Thyme.





The same ink is used to stamp the top on the card insert & the tiny butterfly is colored with a Sakura Gelly Roll glitter pen which is also used to color the Marvy punched butterflies & to make the 3 dots at the end of the sentiment. I used my Sew Easy to close the pocket with just a couple stitches on each side.  The card is finished off with twine & a button.  This was a fun project & I plan to make more pocket cards.  Thanks for coming by.  Hope you have a week with time for crafting!
