Quickie Garden Whimsy Pocket Card


I can't stop making pocket cards.... especially with the Cutie Pie Designer Paper. I can't put down the new Circle Scallop Punch from SU! either. I've also been using up the paper that I have from the Palette O' Prints promotion. Good thing I can replenish my Certainly Celery with a whole package now.... I'm almost complete out of that color. Hey.... you know the So Saffron paper would match the Cutie Pie too. I could have punched the scallop part out of some of that Saffron colored paper. Hmmm....maybe for the next one.

Pocket cards are easy peasy. Just cut your card stock 4 1/4 x 11, score at 5.5 and then 1 1/4 inch from one end. The insert is 4.5 x 3.5 if you are using the Round Tab Punch. This one is stitched closed (because I CAN SEW *giggle*), but if you are using adhesive, be careful to just put a small amount on the sides or your insert won't slide in and out easily.

I think this Garden Whimsy set from Stampin'Up! is for sure a favorite out of the new catalog. I love solid stamps that stamp out easy and pretty. You can just whip out cute cards in seconds.

Hope you all are having a fun weekend. If you are a Fan Club member, go over to SCS and check out the Dare To Get Dirty Gallery! And, thanks so much if you played along with my challenge for yesterday! Dang... you girls can pink it up good baby!!!

Thanks for stopping by!
