# Two of Three

BEST WISHES pocket card

Hi again, Second eye candy for you today......
This is a card, you will want to make more than will be wanting to keep one for the  trophy self.

This week, I tried a new card stock.....and am falling in love with it!. I got the tip from my fellow DT at Heartfelt Creations, Lizz...a real sweetheart...and does great crafting. You will be seeing a lot more of this pearl card stock with the Heartfelt Creations products on my postings. I think the two make a great marriage...what does not with the Heartfelt Creations product ?

Instructions: The finished size of this pocket card is 11.9 cm x 20.5 cm
To make the Pocket: Taking the card stock, cut the pocket back 13.5 cm x 16.5 cm. Make folds at 1.5 cm along the 16.5 cm edge and one on the 11.9 cm edge. This will be the gluing tabs. Cut into the ends to miter the corners. Sharpen these folds with the bone folder. Cut a card front. 11.5 cm x 15.5 cm and cut the center out leaving a 1.5 cm edge on three sides. Giving the card a U shape. Adhere this to the pocket tabs. This will cover the mitering in the corners. To make the frame, stamp the frame image with the gold embossing powder. Color with the glimmer mists, die cut the image using the matching die. 

Cut the clear card stock to fit and adhere at the outer part of the frame with double sided tape. ( You can see the clear card stock in this photo of the completed card.) This will stop the card catching on the leaves as it slides in and out. Alien and adhere to the front of the pocket.
Stamp twice the wood and butterfly image from the Berries and Peaches stamp set, using gold embossing powder. Fussy cut the image complete and the other fussy cut the peaches. Color with the glimmer mists. Shape and ball, using the Deluxe Flower Shaping kit. Color the seam binding ribbon with one of the matching glimmer mist colors. Make a triple bow. Cut a slot large enough for the ribbon on both sides of the peaches on the wood from the complete fussy cut image. Adhere the wood image to the front of the frame. This will cover the flowers in the frame. Adhere the ribbon across and around the pocket, placing the ends into the cut slots. Adhere the fussy cut peaches to the peach image. Adhere the triple bow to the side under the leaves. 

Stamp, die cut, color and shape the flowers and leaves. One flower for the pocket, two flowers for the card. Add a pearl to the center of the flowers. Adhere one of the flowers and leaves to the flower shape in the frame above the center circle. 

The placement of the flowers are to the left.

Stamp the banner image, masking the sentiment on the stamp. Fussy cut the image then color with the glimmer mists. Die cut and adhere the sentiment to the banner. Adhere the banner to the right. Adhere the flowers and leaves to the left. The placement will allow the card to slide in and out and the flowers will stop just above the pocket top. To finish add stickles to the pearls, sentiment and butterfly.

The insert card tab has been left plain. Although you could stamp further on it, it will show through the clear card stock. A suggestion is, you could write, stamp on the reverse side of the card tab 

This was a sure fun card to make...I loved working with this card stock. As you can see it colours fantasticly well with this sold faithful glimmer mists. Now if you all have used your stash up...but I don't believe it. I am sure everyone has a few colours in the bottom of the draws....who knows????
