MIM #23 -- part one

Tuesday, July 12, 2011

Today is my wonderful friend, Val's, birthday and I made her this card, using this week's Make It Monday at Papertrey Ink: Pockets wtih Edger Dies.

Now, I don't own any edger dies, so I decided to use my Mat Stack # 5 die to make this card:


I used Papertrey Ink cardstock, twine, Mat Stack #5, Tag Sale #3 & Beautiful Blooms II dies, Botanical Silhouettes and Communique Sentiments stamps sets. The patterned paper, sticker and brad are all My Mind's Eye.

Here's what the tag looks like when it's pulled out:


Thanks for looking!

This is such a great card. Clever to use Mat Stack 5. I just love how you don't see the message until you pull out the tag. Great colors, too.

Beautiful card, Leigh. I love the colors, and you're brilliant to use the Mat Stack for the pocket. The tag is so pretty with the colors and that flower and sentiment. Well done. ;-)
