A Pocket of Thanks

I made a large pocket card awhile back and I've been meaning to try it on a standard 4.25 x 5.5 card. I like the way it turned out! All the stamps I used (okay, there's only 2 stamps on the whole card) are from Stampendous!, the papers are all K&Co., and I used watercolor pencils and a blender pen to color. Here are the rest of the details:

- I made the pocket by sealing up a regular envelope (3-5/8 x 6.5 inches) and cutting it in half. I then trimmed the open edge with decorative scissors and then layered it with background papers and the little bee

- The bee image was embossed and then colored with watercolor pencils and a blender pen. I cut it out with my Cuttlebug and Nestabilities scalloped circle dies, attached a yellow brad to the center of one of the flowers in the bee's boquet, cut a larger scalloped circle out of blue paper, and then taped everything together. I then used my paper piercing tool on the scallops.

- The bookmark was made by stamping the image with Memento Tuxedo black ink and then coloring with watercolor pencils and the blender pen. I layered the image on several pieces of card stock and then stapled the pink polka dotted ribbon to the top.

-The scrolls in the upper corners of the card were cut out with my Cuttlebug and then I attached little pink rhinestones.

-The inside of the card is just a repeat of the image on the bookmark and done the same way only I cut it out with the Cuttlebug and scalloped circles dies.

Thanks for looking!
