A pocket card -- MIM #68

I wanted to make a card for a friend to encourage them this week... so, I decided to make a pocket card, after seeing this week's Make It Monday at Papertrey Ink: pocket cards.

Here it is:


I used Papertrey Ink cardstock (sweet blush), stamps (Simply You, Lace Bouquet), ink (canyon clay, scarlet jewel), button (canyon clay) and twine. The patterned paper is My Mind's Eye and the ribbon is Offray.

The inside pulls out like this, where I'll write something encouraging...


Thanks for looking!

Wow, Leigh. I go away for a couple of days, and look at what I missed. Your blog hop card is just stunning. I love all the flower layers. Those baby thank yous are so adorable, and will be much appreciated, and I love your take on this week's MIM technique.

Beautiful! Love how you coordinated the pattern papers and the stamped images and colors! (P.S. Everytime you use the Lace Bouquet set, you are making me want it heehee!)
