Mother's Day Card

Pocket Card
Here is a swap that I did at our recent demonstrator's meeting- to make a pocket card.
We are supposed to used any new set from the
Stampin' UP! Spring -Summer Collection 2008.
I chose the Bloomin' Beautiful set which seemed to be a perfect choice for a mother's day card. The pocket card measures 51/2" x 41/4" and scored 11/2" for the flap. I used Boho Background set for the background. It turned out to be a sweet combo. I did the scallops using the slit punch and added the dots using the Chocolate chip fine tip marker.


















I have been using my markers and blender pen quite a bit for coloring The Whisper White paper from SU! works really well when you try to blend the colors.




The insert meaures 31/2" x 41/2". I mounted everything flat just it will fit nicely in the pocket.

Thanks for stopping by.
