pocket card

Tuesday Throwdown challenge is about incorporating pockets in your artwork. I decided to make an entire card pocket. The base is Bazill brown cardstock 4 1/4 x 11 folded in half and corner rounder used on all corners. Then the top layer was scored at 1" and folded down. Tape this down. Glue the sides and bottom with a narrow strip of double side tape. I love pink/brown combbo so I used DP and label from More Mimi by TAC. The ribbon from Michael's goes all the way around and is tied in a knot in front. The many thanks is from tag tidbits by TAC and the label is tied on with scrapper's floss. The inside tag is 5" x 3 1/4" with a 1" strip of DP on top,and corners are also rounded. I sponged a bit of Martha Stewart pink geranium around edges and then stamped You're so thoughtful from TAC in the same color. It is a nice change from all the standard A2 cards.
