*Pocket Card*

I love Thursdays during the school year! Why? Quite simply because I don't work on Fridays! Gotta love that!

And what will I be doing with my day off tomorrow? Well, I believe there is a trip to Michaels with two girlfriends in my future including a stop at Starbucks. Then in the afternoon a girlfriend and I are going to craft.

Lovely way to spend a day off!

Todays card is my version of the criss-cross pocket card that seems to be so popular lately. I found that the directions called for a lot of cardstock so I went off on my own to create something similar (not the same, obviously) but using less cardstock. Not really a "criss-cross" in the end I guess though, is it?

Oh well, I still like it!

Items Used:
*Cardstock: Stampin' Up! Very Vanilla, Ruby Red, Soft Sky, Certainly Celery
*Patterned Paper: Tres Joiles
*Ink: Stampin' Up! Certainly Celery and Ruby Red
*Images: Stampin' Up! All Holidays, Rhonna Farrer Swirls
*Embellishments: Prima Flower, Bling
*Tools: circle punch

What did I learn from this card? I really want the tab punch from Stampin' Up! sigh.

Great card, Nancy! I have been meaning to try one of these too. I think someone else had done one using less paper this week too...maybe it was Nancy Grant? I will have to look and let you know.

Very cute card! Love the paper that you used and I really like the style of these pocket cards that I'm seeing. Oh, there needs to be time in the day to craft in...that or I have to narrow down my to-do list! lol :)
