Just a Bunch of Christmas Pocket Cards with Inserts!!


Hi Everyone! I made these pocket cards on Wednesday but did not have the time to post them. I'm getting tired of my regular cards and wanted to do something different.

The image on the card to the left was stamped using Stampabilitie's "House Mouse" design stamps. Aren't those mice cute? I have a few Christmas House Mouse stamps that I'll be using in the next few days.













This is the card with the insert pulled out. The half circle slot on the pocket allows the sentiment to show when the insert is put back in the pocket. To create the slot, I used a 1 inch circle punch.

Guess what medium I used to color these mice? Well. . .the answer is "pastels" mixed with watercoloring using markers on glossy white cardstock. Coloring with pastels is much faster than coloring with markers or pencils and the results are pretty nice.
I added glitter to the snow - you can see a little bit of it in the picture.


Just another set of pocket cards.




I colored the snowflake using SU Glittery Blue embossing powder. SU no longer sell the glittery embossing powders. As you can see in the picture, the snowflake and sentiment are really glittery.
The images were stamped using a Close to my Heart stamp set.





These are the last set of pocket cards I made. The Christmas tree background is a cut piece of designer paper by DCWV. The flower image was stamped using SU "Polka Dots & Petals" stamp set and the sentiment is by Studio G.
