Petite Pocket Note Card

I didn’t mean to leave you hanging last week!  My mom and I made a last minute trip to visit my niece at camp.  It was a long trip but very worth getting to see her!  So I promise to make it up to you this week.  I’ll start with a Petite Pocket Note Card. 

I die cut the Petite Pocket in Rose Red and cut off the side flaps of the pocket.  Then I die cut just the front of the pocket with the First Edition DSP – careful that you turn the writing the correct way (don’t ask me how I know this!)  On the DSP I sponged the edges and stamped the stem image from Flower Fancy in Always Artichoke.  Punch 5 scallop circles and wad them up!  “Un-wad” them and stack them on top of each other.  Pierce them in the center and insert a Pretty in Pink brad to hold them together.  Then start with the top layer and pull each scallop up until you have a carnation.  Use crystal Effects or a glue dot to adhere to the front. 

Use one of the circles from the die to create the closure.  Insert a brad and use a dimensional to make it hold the bottom shut.  Stamp Just for You from Teeny Tiny WIshes on Pink Pirouette DSP and punch out with the 3/4 x 15/16 oval (what a name!) 

Line the inside with Pink Pirouette DSP.  Use the Crop a Dile to punch a hole in the upper left corner and tie a piece of Always Artichoke seam bindng through it.  Now you can tie it on a package!

An unconventional way to use this wonderful die!  I’ll show you more tomorrow!  Enjoy – Hugs, Fran
