Inside pocket card

Good morning bloggers! What a sunny and bright morning it is here too!

Thank you all so much for all of my comments on my project yesterday. They all get read and appreciated very much! I also hope you are all well and have a great day today.

I'd like to welcome my new follower Caroline , thank you kindly for taking your time in viewing and commenting on my blog.

My card today is and 8 by 8 card which has been scored in half and then scored again in the middle at the other side to create four squares. The bottom two squares I cut from each corner to the middle of the card to create two triangular pieces at the bottom. I then folded these upwards and stuck to the inside of the card to create pockets making sure I only glued the right and bottom sides of each triangle so there is free space to put gift vouchers, tags , notes, in fact anything you want. I finished the inside of the card with peel of borders, butterfly die cuts and flourishes both from joy craft dies and a sentiment.

For the front of the card I covered it with black embossed card. Used some gorgeous teal blue border peel offs on all sides. Used a patterned die cut which was cut from a die for the centre if the card, layered it with a scalloped silver mirror card and then used a flower topper on top of it. I then used the flourish die cuts to peek out of the main focal point of the card. I finished with a silver heart and sentiment from my stash.

Black is a hard colour to use in a card especially as a block colour like this card but I hope I've pulled it off lol.

Hi Sharon,
wonderful card. Lovely colour combo. I do love doing these pocket cards only I do mine slightly different. Instead of folding I attach a separate triangle piece of card and use the on front and back of my book cards. I find this easier than all the folding.
Lots of crafty love. Jenny L.
