Stampin' Royalty Challenge #25

I am on a roll today! Today at Hand Stamped Sentiments we introduced our newest challenge, a fancy fold or shape card. There were three cards I have been dying to make for this challenge, but ran out of time. For the original post you'll see I made a gate fold card, so simple and a definite WOW! Another card I've been dying to make is a pocket card. When I saw the color challenge at Stampin' Royalty, I thought it was the perfect match. Talk about killing two birds with one stone!

Here are the colors we were asked to use.

And here's the end result. I added a bit of Pumpkin Pie card stock to add some punch. 
Want to know how this was made? Keep reading...
Start with a 9" x 5-1/2" piece of card stock. Score it down the middle (4-1/2") so that you have two even sides. Now make a small pencil mark on the bottom of the card at the midpoint. Now measure the same distance (2-3/4") from the bottom on both sides and mark it. Use your paper cutter or ruler to match up each side mark with the center mark and score. I used my Bone folder to do this.
Fold up both sides and punch a small hole on each flap. Tie a piece of ribbon through each hole making it into a bow. This creates your pocket.
For the inside I cut a piece of Whisper White card stock to 5-1/4" x 4-1/4" and adhered it with SNAIL Adhesive. Now you have an area to write a note. If you use a lighter card stock you don't have to do this. But I also liked the contrast it created.
To complete the card I simply punched flowers from the Blossom Party die in Pink Passion, Lavender Lace and Pumpkin Pie card stock. These were adhered with a 2-Way Glue Pen and Stampin' Dimensionals to add depth.
I tried to get a good picture of the pocket, but it was a bit tricky. Some flowers I adhered to the back of the card and others to the front. I also used the 5-Petal Flower Punch and Old Olive card stock to create leaves.
I hope this inspires you to create something new and different in your paper crafting. And don't forget to stop by the Hand Stamped Sentiments site this week to enter into THREE exciting giveaways. All the info is HERE
