Heartfelt Thanks Pocket Card

 Hello there!

I've done another pocket card today. This one is much simpler than the pocket easel card I made before but just as pretty.

Glue the pocket sides to inside to form pocket. On left end (flap), place the circle inset die and the curved plain edge die along the edge and cut to make a decorative edge for the flap.  Cut this same decorative edge on a piece of gold to fit under flap so that the gold shows slightly. Cut a piece of gold about 1/4" wide to cover any seam made on the inside of flap.  Wrap a gold ribbon around entire flap above the decorative edge.

Cut 2 tags from decorative paper using the Ticket and Tags die set., insert gold ribbon at the tops then place inside of pocket. Stamp sentiment using Magenta Hue onto white, die cut with oval then die cut another oval a little larger from gold. Glue together then glue to inside on top of pocket top edge.

Use black to stamp the Petite Feathery Florals and Butterfly.  Die cut then color.  Glue the butterfly to the pocket (make sure it shows when flap is closed). Glue the Petite Feathery floral to the top of flap over ribbon (leave room on the left side for Lilies).

Stamp Lilies using Sunflower and using Magenta Hue, sponge then die cut and form in the mold.  Insert stamen then glue to the card flap left side.

Glitter all the flowers and butterfly then make a gold bow and glue it under Lilies.
