Christmas double pocket card

Good evening everyone on blog land! I hope you are all well. I apologise for not posting yesterday I was feeling a little bit under the weather. I'm hoping I'm not coming down with some kind of virus.

I'd like to welcome my new follower , thank you so much for following me. Thank you all so much for your comments on my previous posts. They were lovely and meant a lot to me.

As you may know I love Christmas and especially making Christmas card and projects. The card today has a double pocket base where you can put gift cards, tags etc into them on the front of the card. The tutorial is here to make the pocket base : Double pocket card tutorial  . I made my own card to put it onto by using some hunkydory card stock. I covered the pockets using different types of paper and card that corresponds with all the colours. I then decorated using peel off corners ribbon lace , sentiment and using my x cut heart punch for a border at the top. I used a tag I had from some Christmas pack I had and mounted it onto card for sturdiness. I then die cut some silver mirror card and used a cut out of a tree peel off abs stuck onto the mirror card and finished of with gems.

The image I used is a kanban stamp coloured with pro markers , die cut then matted onto another spellbinders labels cut out which I used gold peel offs on the four corners then stuck onto the card.

I finished if with lace, white organza bow , glitter and a flower from my stash.
