Pocket Card

Well I have been busy making this card this morning for this weeks Stampin For The Weekend Challenge which is to make a 'Pocket Card'. I watched various You Tube tutorials which I enjoyed but I wanted to do 'my thing' so I downloaded some templates from Jesgirls and made this little pocket and attached it to the front of the card I also downloaded a tag and stake template which I printed off onto the same backing papers (Bearlymine). I decorated with additional ribbon and flowers. The tag and stake I reinforced with white card I punched a hole in the tag and threaded a tassel and charm through. I decided to stamp some wellies and placed them on the stake and coloured them the same colour as Tilda who I decided to put onto the pocket. I thought it would be a garden orientated card. I am still not happy with my mojo but I think this has come out quite good and hope you like it hugs to all.

Hi Lorraine

Well I don't think there is anything the matter with your Mojo.

You have gone to a lot of trouble with this card and it shows.

Not many people would sit and trawl You Tube and download templates etc. You are a very dedicated crafter.

I love your card by the way.

Love Jules xx

Wowzer, lady, you put alot of work into this beautiful card! I love this garden theme, that was a great idea and I just love those boots or wellies as you call them! I had to figure that one out...lol, be patient with me, I'm still learning! This paper is fabulous too, I'll have to look into Bearlymine! You did a great job Lorraine and you should be very proud of this! You take care! Blessings, Maria
