Creative Cafe'- August Kit of the Month- Pocket full o' Posies!

Hey it's a new month and with that brings us to a new Kit release! August's Creative Cafe kit of the month is called Gold 'n Glitz- and it's a beauty!

Using the coordinating Floral Bouquet stamp set that comes wth the kit I created a very simple pocket card - that when pulled out reveals the message inside.  I think you could stick a gift card in this sweet pocket as well. 

Here's my card with the insert tucked in  I layered my flower pot on the outside - creating this beautiful bouquet!
All of the flowers, leaves and vase were stamped on printed papers from the My Minds Eye paper pad also included in the kit! I fussy cut them out - and using Distress Inks -distressed and inked the edges to create more depth. 

Using another printed paper from the pad, I created the insert to match the angle points of the pocket. When the insert is pulled out my simple "Thank you" sentiment is revealed, this is from the Add-on set Laurels.
I created a custom envelope for my special pocket card, and tracing the inside flap - I cut out a 'glimmer' liner from the fabulous gold cardstock also included in the kit.

To create the pocket card - I started by cutting my cardstock in 1/2 to measure 5 1/2 x 8 1/2.  I scored and folded it at the 4 1/4" mark.                                                                            
Next to fold and create the pocket I brought up each corner to the middle creating a 45 degree folds with a point directly aligned with the bottom edge of the half underneath.   
You can tie the top edges together wth a ribbon - or as I did position the vase and ribbon over the edges keeping them closed.  I didn't like the point flapping up and down, so I just put bit of adhesive to keep it flat.  You can I also randomly stamped images and inke my pocket piece all over before I was done, giving my finished blue pocket a much richer look.

Here's another look at my finished pocket card, and envelope!
