Today's Challenge is

***Different card/Technique***
Double Diagonal
Pocket Card Tutorial
(you must follow tutorial)

Here's my sample card as a design team member 
for Mark's Finest Papers! Thanks for looking and head 
on over to JOIN IN the challenge fun!
This is a fun and simple technique and I hope that
you will find the tutorial simple to follow. Don't get
frustrated. Here is a YouTube link to get a 
better visual, if needed. I did use a double-sided
pattern paper for this project. Instead of making tags
for the pockets, I made bookmarks to use as
a thank you gift. I laminated the bookmarks
before I added the ribbons. I did add an extra
green strip on the top pocket to make it stand
out more.  I stamped my flower on a matching
dotted designer paper. 
I added a touch of matching Copic coloring to the 
flower. I used Fun Stampers Journey Glaze, let it 
dry, then I added a coordinating flower, button and 
some green twine. I made a banner and stamped my 
Thank You. I attached the flower using mounting 
tape to raise it up and placed the tag under. 
That's it! 


Thanks for stopping by and consider following my blog.
