Pocket Card!

I did this card today for splitcoast stampers color challenge CC 217. I am not going to lie and say I enjoyed these colors cause really I didn't.. It was a very hard color combo today, I guess that is why they call it a challenge. After a lot of fuss and putting everything away this morning and starting over this afternoon this is what I came up with...ha ha!! I decided today to do a pocket card. Very simple and I just added paper in the pocket so you could see it holds stuff. You can put in a gift certificate, a packet of seeds for spring, or anything you like that will fit. It was very simple. You just cut the cardstock width to 4 1/4 then score at 5 1/2 and 1 1/2 , then fold and punch your border. Then you tie your ribbon around the card to hold the pocket into place. These are so fun to make. I did enjoy making this a lot once I could get the colors working! Thanks for stopping by my blog today!!

Thanks Crystal! Good to see you on my blog. I have to laugh. Your colours seem to be similar to your blog background. I must pop over to Splitcoast to check out the challenge. I just love what you did, it gives me an idea for a challenge I am doing. Christmas in June, I'm not allowed to buy a prezie, I have to make one.

Thanks for the inspiration. :0)

I haven't tried the color combo yet, but I have certianly struggled with many other color combo challenges and my philosophy is: always use a lot of white with a difficult color combo! It works everytime! LOL! Love your pocket card! Its so cute!
