Sunshine Blessing

For this card I wanted to do something a bit different
 This is the front of the Pocket card.  I love how the flowers really pop agains the kraft background.
Here is the tag actually pulled out of the pocket card. It is simple yet elegant with the flower stamped in the corner of the card, don't ya think?
So what did I use to make this card, Heartfelt Creations stamps and diecuts, some kraft paper cardstock a bit of left over dark brown, cream and a lighter shade of tan cardstock, some trim a decorative brad and brown pearl, some flower fluff, left over ribbons walnut stain distress ink, and a clear star gelly pen.
For this project you will need to cut your paper to 10 1/2 x 5 paper, score at 5 &10. Attach the 5x5 onto the 1/2 seam.  If you want decorate outer flaps with embossed cardstock. Cut decorative paper 4 1/2 x 4 1/2 in 1/2 creating two triangles. Using your background cardstock 4 3/4 x 5 glue that down to the middle section. Using strong adhesive, glue the bottom of the middle and fold over one triangle flap, do the same and fold over the next flap. You have just created a pocket. Attach some trim to the edges of the flaps and a decorative pearl and of course your Heartfelt Creations flowers.
For your tag.
Mine measures 4 x 4 1/2 for the base and 3 3/4 x 4 1/4 for the cream main section. I stamped Happy Birthday and a flower using Vintage Photo ink, punched a hole to thread the ribbon thru and attached a brad to finish it. With a few outlines with the gelly pen in clear star I think it finishes it.
